The Centre has a growing role in defence and industrial product development and testing programs and has a strong capability in aftermarket product compliance testing, along with traditional services. In particular it is fully equipped and accredited for supporting seat and Seatbelt development and system level testing.
Monash University Accident Research Centre
The need for a safety product like bucklemeup to be made available to the market has been significantly enhanced by research carried out by the leading research body – Monash University Accident Research Centre (MUARC). See a Report, which indicates that a system like bucklemeup could reduce the number of accidents caused by passengers being unrestrained in the back of a car and reduce dramatically the driver distraction associated with the driver regularly checking to ensure the rear passengers are buckled up.
EMC Technologies test a diverse range of electrical and electronics products for global certification and approval and are the largest and most accredited EMC/EMF/EMR/SAR/Wireless/Safety test house in Australia and New Zealand.
The bucklemeup product underwent an Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) test in accordance with the radiated emissions requirements of AS/NZS 61000.6.3 and was found to be compliant. In addition, radio tests were performed on the transmitter and receiver of the device in accordance with the applicable requirements of AS/NZS 4268:2012 and was found to be compliant.
According to Chris Zombalis, Managing Director of EMC Technologies, “This product has been tested to ACMA (Australian Communications and Media Authority) technical requirements and we found that it meets those requirements, so you’ll be confident that it won’t cause interference with anything else.” As a result of compliancy in both tests, the bucklemeup product has received a Regulatory Compliance Mark (RCM) tick of approval.
