In July this year, FORESEE, the industrial storage brand of Longsys, released its industrial SSDs — FORESEE Industrial SSD Products Employ Wide Temperature Technology to Boost Intelligent Industrial Scenarios.
Recently, FORESEE industrial SSDs have been certified as RoHS, REACH, CE, and FCC compliant, facilitating their market access in major countries and regions such as the EU, the US, South Korea, and Taiwan, China. With performance and reliability meeting industrial standards, these certified SSDs also satisfy the safety and environmental protection requirements of the industrial/automotive electronics market.
Following advancements in products and technology, certification criteria for storage devices have become increasingly strict and scientific worldwide. The development and spread of various certification types not only regulate the storage market, but also standardize the R&D and production of storage products. Ultimately, this benefits consumers, whose safety and environmental protection requirements are ever-increasing.
With its industrial SSDs, FORESEE strives to provide quality products and service to industrial customers worldwide. During the design stage, FORESEE's industrial storage team fully considers environmental requirements based on usage scenarios, and selects materials and components in line with relevant regulations. With RoHS and REACH certification from SGS, an authoritative third-party institution, these stable, reliable products fully meet relevant environmental requirements.
The RoHS Directive prohibits use of hazardous substances in electrical and electronic products. These include lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, PBB and PBDE.
REACH refers to the registration, evaluation, authorization and restriction of chemicals. This regulation was adopted by the EU for preventive management of all chemicals entering its market. It aims to promote alternative methods for hazard assessment of substances to improve product safety while safeguarding human health and the environment.
Each country around the world has its own requirements for product compliance, and many of them have put forward mandatory certifications, such as CCC in China. The industrial SSDs are designed and selected with full consideration of application scenarios and related standards. Certification via these standards is proof of FORESEE's solid strength in product development, design and quality control, increasing consumers' and market surveillance agencies' trust in FORESEE products, and enabling the brand to provide higher-quality products to industrial customers.
CE is the EU's mandatory safety conformity marking. The EU has formulated numerous laws, regulations and harmonized standards, the content of which is very intricate. For electronic products, electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) certification under CE is mandatory. A CE marking will be granted if a product has strong electromagnetic immunity, without generating electromagnetic interference with other electronic products.
In the United States, FCC certification is mandatory for all products that use electricity. The EMC test is a major requirement of this.
KC certification is mandatory in South Korea. As South Korea is one of the world's key industrial countries, KC certification is essential for its market access. The KC certification mark unifies the 13 existing certification items in South Korea. With numerous categories, meticulous testing and strict requirements, the KC Mark has become recognized worldwide.
Mandatory in Taiwan, BSMI certification mainly consists of EMC and safety regulation. With a comprehensive range of test items and wide EMC test coverage, BSMI certification poses stricter requirements on products.
This year, the industrial storage team has conducted in-depth testing and certification of several products, with the aim of guaranteeing environmental protection and compliance. In doing so, FORESEE will expand its sales area and scope, and address the issue of market access for end customers. Going forwards, the industrial storage team will continue to develop its industrial and automotive products to provide global customers with higher quality, and bring valuable new products designed with more dynamic thinking to the automotive electronics and industrial and automation markets.
