DEKRA to expand its range of testing services with a new high-tech lab

Ensuring Safe Electric Mobility on Two Wheels

5. Jul 2019

The expert organization DEKRA is strengthening its commitment to safe, electric two-wheel mobility and expanding its range of services and testing capacities in Stuttgart. A new EMC laboratory and battery test facilities will ensure an all-in service for manufacturers and dealers of bicycles and Personal Light Electric Vehicles (PLEVs).

  • EMC laboratory in Stuttgart rounds off range of services for bicycles
  • Comprehensive service for safe, modern two-wheel mobility
  • DEKRA to appear for the first time ever at Eurobike 2019 in Friedrichshafen

The safety of electric bicycles is increasingly coming under the spotlight. The test requirements for mechanical systems and electric drives are becoming ever more detailed, complex and stringent, which is why DEKRA – Europe’s top testing organization – is investing throughout the Group in new test facilities to meet the growing demand for tests and approvals for state-of-the-art mobility.

For electric bicycles, DEKRA offers all the EU-mandated tests from a single source in accordance with DIN EN 15194, covering a range of aspects including markings, user guides, mechanical and electrical safety in accordance with the Machinery Directive, the safety of individual systems and functional safety. DEKRA will be testing electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) in its new EMC laboratory, which was recently put into operation in Stuttgart.

For two-wheelers such as S-Pedelecs, which are classified as vehicles and so require official approval and homologation for road service, DEKRA also offers the services of the DEKRA Technology Center in Klettwitz. Recognized EU-wide as a technical service, the DEKRA Technology Center conducts comprehensive testing on e-scooters in accordance with the new PLEV Ordinance (eKFV) as well as road traffic certification (StVZO).

The DEKRA experts and laboratories also offer the full range of supplementary bicycle-related tests: in-development material and component tests; environmental simulations and damage analysis in the materials laboratory; tests for hazardous substances in the chemistry laboratory; lighting tests in the light laboratory; damage assessments and usability tests.

DEKRA will be showcasing its range of services for the bicycle industry for the first time ever at the Eurobike trade fair in Friedrichshafen from September 4 to 7, 2019. https://www.dekra.com/en/events-local-10880
