April 18, 2018

UL awarded the world's first data synchronization and charging cable certifications, knows as the information and communication technology (ICT) Data / Power Cable Certification, to two industry leaders: Foxconn International and Luxshare Precision. The program addresses the safety concerns of cables specifically for cable assemblies that provide data transmission and power or charging for connected equipment in a circuit that does not exceed 60 V dc, 8.0 A and 100 W through the control of connector/cable materials and electrical design by performing testing in accordance with the newly published Outline UL 9990.

The program consists of a comprehensive factory inspection and market surveillance to help ensure ongoing compliance of the cable assemblies. It helps retailers and e-commerce providers achieve market traceability along the supply chain, win the trust of consumers and end-users, while enhancing the confidence of retailers, installers and brand owner and strengthening competitiveness through product differentiation.

The program has quickly received the support of retailers and e-commerce providers, as well as positive responses from a number of well-known brands, suppliers and manufacturers, some of which are now in business consultation or certification application with UL.
