NMi provides support in different phases of product development, helping you avoid expensive and time-consuming modifications later on.
Design and standards
You can take into account the requirements relating to your meter during the very earliest stages of product development. This enables you to reduce development costs as well as the time between design and final product according to the requirements. The result is fewer failures and therefore less retesting during certification.
Correctly interpreting standards and legislation is a challenge in itself. However, this is routine for NMi’s specialists. NMi is represented in various national and international committees, so we know exactly what future developments can be expected. We can tell you now what changes in requirements or standards will take place during the coming year. As an independent party, NMi performs a design review to predict whether certification will be successful. Such knowledge and experience can then be incorporated in your design specifications.
A pre-test can be performed during the development of a prototype. Potential obstacles or test failures in the later certification process can then be predicted at a stage when modifications are still relatively straightforward. It is then easy for our team of engineers to conduct type examination and certification. More information about testing and certification is available here.
In order to speed up the commissioning and supply of your product, you can conduct the first verification of the measuring equipment yourself (in accordance with MID Module D for Europe). NMi also performs acceptance tests on behalf of purchasers of meters by carrying out testing on production samples.
