 Electricity and Electronics Lab

Laboratory Tasks:
1.An examination and testing samples according to the Saudi standards.
2.Issuing technical reports on inspection and test results. 
3.Opinions and technical advice in the field of electrical and electronic products.
4.Cooperation with relevant departments to carry out initial and periodic inspections of the plants obtaining the Quality Mark.  
 
Types of Tests :
The laboratory makes tests according  to the standards of tests methods of all electrical and electronic goods, for example:
 Visual inspection - Measurement of current and voltage and power - Testing   insulation resistance – Testing high voltage - test stream leakage - Testing   protection against electric shock - Testing continuity of ground connecting – testing resistance to humidity - and measuring the creepage and clearances distances - Measurement of stamina - Measurement of Wire & Cable resistivity - and measuring the work capacity of refrigerators ice - measuring the life span of electric lamps and dry batteries- and examine the radiation of microwave ovens.
