    Hi Folks,

    Does anyone know a good and honest test lab in Texas? We need to do
    baseline tests and then full cert tests on an agricultural type system
    with electronics, pumps, hoses and stuff. Safety and EMC, for overseas
    countries such as Australia.

    Houston would be nice. Looks like most of them are near Austin which
    would also be ok for driving distance. I know a lot of labs, just not in
    that area.

    I was quite happy with Intertek. I think they have an EMC test lab in Texas,
    too.
     
  3. 2nd the Intertek.
    Also SGS, but I can't quickly determine if there is an emc lab in Texas.

    Cheers

    Actually, the tech we used in Atlanta moved to Plano, IIRC. He was a wild man
    but knew his stuff. Intertek could be counted on for consistency. The
    company we used before that (also in Atlanta but I can't remember their name)
    couldn't give the same result two out of ten times. We spent a week chasing a
    phantom.

    Thanks, Martin, I have let my client know about this as well. SGS' web
    site is a mess but they can just call the Baytown, TX office and
    inquire. In case someone else is looking for their contact info in the
    various states:
