NTS Plano Adds Accredited Testing Services for Wireless, Product Safety and Energy Star Evaluations

New Capabilities Will Be Featured at Plano Facility Open House, Customer Appreciation Day on June 6, 2014

NTS Plano has recently announced the successful completion of their American Association for Laboratory Accreditation (A2LA) audit and added wireless/radio testing, product safety evaluations and Energy Star testing capabilities.

NTS Plano can now conduct power supply testing to qualify for Energy Star requirements, and also testing on various electronic, consumer and commercial products to provide data for the purpose of EPA Energy Star certification.

In essence, NTS acts like an extension of a customer’s compliance group.

These new capabilities bring NTS Plano much closer to the goal of being the premier testing lab in the South Central United States. The Plano facility, which currently consists of 50,000 square feet of laboratory space plus a remote 44,000 square foot test site, also offers extensive EMC (electromagnetic capability) testing services with seven EMC and EMI chambers including a large 10-meter chamber and two 3-meter chambers, EMP (electromagnetic pulse) testing, capabilities for unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) testing, indirect lightning testing, air flow measurement capabilities and a full suite of environmental and dynamics testing capabilities including 18 chambers and five shakers, among other capabilities and services.

Energy Star is a voluntary U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) program to identify and promote energy-efficient products to reduce energy consumption, improve energy security and reduce pollution.

The Plano facility is located at 1701 E. Plano Parkway, Suite 150, Plano, TX. For more information, call 972-509-2566 or visit the webpage
