EN15194 certification is the first international comprehensive certification for EPAC: electric-assisted pedal bicycles and the electronics applications integrated into the bicycles, such as intelligent lithium-ion batteries, chargers, controllers, remotes, displays, etc.
The products that passed the test of EN 15194 can prove that the products meet the international first-class level and have a positive effect on the development of the energy-saving market.
The new standard for electric-assisted bicycles is far more complicated than the standard for EPAC previously. The new standard covers mechanical safety, electromagnetic compatibility (EMC), and electrical safety;
> Mechanical safety standards: Test the lithium-ion battery packs according to the requirements of bicycle standards (EN15194:2017);
> The Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) standard is implemented in accordance with EU Directive 2006/42/EC (Machinery Directive): the purpose is to ensure that people who use hearing aids or pacemakers are driving motorcycles, cars, or electric assist bicycles safely. Starting from April 2019, all electric-assisted bicycles, including rechargeable lithium-ion batteries sold in the EU market must pass the EMC test of the new standard EN15194;
> Electrical safety standards are implemented in accordance with ISO13849-1:2015: related to requirements for circuits, batteries, wires, power control, etc.
