LAPP USA Earns CSA Certification

January 5, 2021

LAPP’s test facility for cables is CSA certified under the CSA Supervised Manufacturer’s Testing for Certification (SMTC) Program.

Although UL has a Canadian equivalent, cUL, the CSA mark is more broadly accepted by designers, contractors and machine builders in Canada and other international regions.

CSA certification verifies the cable manufacturer’s test equipment and test methods meet the same requirements as those at CSA facilities, demonstrating the company’s commitment to quality for the global market.

LAPP USA Engineering performs many of the same tests that CSA conducts in its lab. The company also has to meet the latest ISO 17025 standards, which relate to a company’s quality management systems, equipment calibration, staff competency, and documentation.  By harmonizing its testing with the CSA, LAPP is able to validate its products prior to CSA testing.  That’s assurance that most cable manufacturers cannot offer.

CSA is Canada’s most recognized standards organization, and the CSA mark is broadly accepted by designers, contractors and machine builders.

LAPP’s CSA certification means you can be sure our products have been thoroughly tested to provide the highest quality and meet the rigors of their end-use applications and environments.

Conserving Power and CO2 Emissions with Premium Efficiency Motors

The process of converting electrical energy to mechanical energy is never perfect. As much as we would like to have a 100% efficient motor, it is impossible to build a machine that will take 746 watts of electricity (the equivalent of 1 Hp) and convert it to 1 Hp of mechanical output. It always takes somewhat more than 746 watts to yield 1 Hp’s worth of output.

Motors are continuously being pushed to be more efficient and reduce these losses. Over the years the guiding regulations of motor manufacturing have pushed us to improve efficiencies to new levels to reduce the considerable global power consumption of motors, as they are everywhere. From our factories, utilities and homes and most anywhere you can think of.

How much power consumption aka money are you spending that you do not have to? Take a minute while having your coffee to see if you can save money.
