American National Services Institute (ANSI)
This private, non-profit organization administers and coordinates U.S. volumntary standard and conformity assessment system.
American Society of Mechanical Engineers
This non-profit educational and technical organization serves 125,000 members worldwide.
Canadian Standards Organization
Dynapar encoder products are CSA approved. The Canadian Standards Association is a not-for-profit membership-based association serving business, industry, government and consumers in Canada and the global marketplace.
As a solutions-oriented organization, we work in Canada and around the world to develop standards that address real needs, such as enhancing public safety and health. Advancing the quality of life. Helping to preserve the environment.
Dynapar encoder products are CE approved. CE is an acronym for the French phrase "Conformite Europeene" and is similar to the UL or CSA marks of North America. Unlike UL or CSA which require independent laboratory testing, the CE mark can be applied by the manufacturer through a "self certifying" procedure that verifies that products are designed to the appropriate standards. The CE mark states that the manufacturer complies the product to be within applicable EU directives.
International Organization of Standardization
ISO standards are voluntary. As a non-governmental organization, ISO has no legal authority to enforce their implementation. A certain percentage of ISO standards, mainly those concerned with health, safety or environment have been adopted in some countries as part of their regulatory framework or is referred to in legislation for which it serves as the technical basis. Such adoptions are sovereign decisions by the regulatory authorities or governments of the countries concerned. ISO itself does not regulate or legislate. However, although ISO standards are voluntary, they may become a market requirement, as has happened in the case of ISO 9000 quality management systems.
For businesses, the widespread adoption of International Standards means that suppliers can base the development of their products and services on specifications that have wide acceptance in their sectors. This, in turn, means that businesses using International Standards are increasingly free to compete on many more markets around the world. For consumers, conformity of products and services to International Standards provides assurance about their quality, safety and reliability.
NEMA Enclosure Types
Dynapar encoder products are NEMA rated. Your source for general information on the definitions of NEMA Enclosure Types (e.g. NEMA 1, NEMA 4X, NEMA 7, etc.). NEMA promotes safety in the manufacture and use of electrical products.
The mission of the Occupational Safety & Health Administration is to save lives, prevent injuries and protect the health of American workers.
