Rockwell safety products receive certification from China

The China Compulsory Certification (CCC) mark was given to Rockwell Automation for a majority of its safety product lines. The CCC, which is assigned to the product and to the factory that produces it, helps OEMs who are building machines and systems for the Chinese market to incorporate safety control systems that meet local product licensing requirements.

The China Compulsory Certification (CCC) mark was given to Rockwell Automation for a majority of its safety product lines. The CCC, which is assigned to the product and to the factory that produces it, helps OEMs who are building machines and systems for the Chinese market to incorporate safety control systems that meet local product licensing requirements.

The Chinese government agency, Certification and Accreditation Administration, created the CCC mark in 2002 and issued a catalog of 132 product categories required to obtain the certification before exporting or selling those products to China. Safety products subject to the CCC mark include relays, switches, controllers, and contactors that operate above 36 V. However, not all safety products need the CCC mark to be commissioned in China. Products that operate at or below 36 V are not subject to compulsory certification, such as GuardShield light curtains, SensaGuard non-contact switches and SmartGuard 600 safety PLCs.

Rockwell’s safety product lines include cable pull switches (Lifeline), monitoring safety relays (MSR), and safety switches (Elf, Cadet 3, Trojan, MT-GD2, TLS, Spartan, 440G-MT, Atlas5). Rockwell is also pursuing certification for other safety product lines, including non-contact interlock switches, and additional safety relays.

The completion of the extensive, five-step, application process by Rockwell saves OEMs time and money by eliminating the need to go back and certify the products themselves, the company said. The process took approximately nine months to complete and included several application with supporting technical materials, product testing, and factory inspections.

Other CCC-certified product lines from Rockwell include motor control centers, contractors and accessories, circuit breakers, smart motor controllers, electronic overload relays, pushbutton and indicators, and the control relay 700 series.
