Certification mark for Portable computing devices (pCD)

  

 

Scope:

The certification mark applies to portable computing devices (PCD) with quick charging capacity, implemented by using higher voltage and current than basic USB specification, which are supplied only by exclusively-used wired and wireless charging adaptors to charge on specific type(s) of battery/ies.

Basis of certification:

Test basis is outlined in PPP 51103A Rev. 02. After successful testing and certification of the product, the voluntary certification mark of the independent testing and inspection organization TÜV SÜD is awarded. The use of the TÜV SÜD certification mark presupposes a repeated annual visit to the manufacturing facilities.

Keywords of the certification mark:

  • Safe wired charging

    The product has been tested in different Scenarios with a wired charging System consisting of a portable computing device, cable and USB power supply source, and the proper functioning of the quick charging and the electrical and mechanical durability of the Systems has been evaluated, as well as the sufficiency in electrical and thermal protection.

     

  • Safe wireless charging

    The product has been tested in different Scenarios with a wireless charging system consisting of a portable computing device and an induction wireless power transmitter, and the proper functioning of the foreign object detection (FOD) of the wireless charger according to IEC 62368, third edition, has been evaluated, as well as FOD under reversed wireless charging of the portable computing device and the sufficiency in electrical and thermal protection.

  • Safety tested

    The voluntary TÜV SÜD certification mark with the statement “Safety tested” is awarded for products indicating that the product was tested and certified by the independent third-party organisation of TÜV SÜD Product Service for conformity with the essential technical safety requirements.

  • Production monitored

    Periodic surveillance and/or monitoring of the manufacture of a product constitutes the basic premise for certification that includes the award of a certification mark. Certification always requires product testing and regular factory inspections.

    As a third-party expert organisation, TÜV SÜD Product Service verifies that the manufacturer is able to maintain consistent quality in line with the requirements throughout high-volume production and has established the necessary quality system, including incoming goods inspections, lists of materials and final product testing.

    In addition, calibration of the necessary measuring and monitoring equipment must be ensured. Surveillance and/or monitoring covers the testing of safety-critical components and other materials used. If unauthorised changes are made to the product, the certificate will become invalid and the TÜV SÜD certification mark may no longer be used.
