Positioning Devices Certification and Testing

Positioning devices are intended to provide mechanical means for holding or routing wires and cables for factory installation within equipment/devices and for field installation to meet national installation codes.

Positioning devices holding cables

Overview

Positioning devices cover a wide variety of products, such as cable ties, fixing devices, bundling wraps, cable wraps, wiring ducts and similar types of related hardware. They are intended to provide mechanical means for supporting and positioning wires and cables for factory installation within equipment/devices and for field installation to meet national installation codes.

Capabilities

We offer testing and certification to all key standards pertaining to positioning devices:

  • ANSI/UL 62275 Cable Management Systems – Cable Ties for Electrical Installations 
  • ANSI/UL 1565 Positioning Devices 
  • CAN/CSA-C22.2 No. 62275 Cable Management Systems – Cable Ties for Electrical Installations
  • IEC 62275 Cable Management Systems – Cable Ties for Electrical Installations
  • EN 62275 Cable Management Systems – Cable Ties for Electrical Installations

Benefits

The UL Mark on a positioning device is widely recognized to indicate that it meets the standards for safety and performance for both electrical and non-electrical applications.

Why UL

For decades, we have supported this industry by developing standards, testing and certifying positioning devices that address safety and performance needs for both electrical and non-electrical applications.

Since 1894, our expertise in safety science and in-depth experience across numerous industries positions us to provide a complete view of how products function within a given system. This is particularly critical in the plastics and components industry, as interactions between substances, parts, systems and the environment in which they are expected to function can be the cause of a significant number of hazards and failures. These hazards and failures are rarely apparent when components are tested individually.

Our worldwide presence allows us to provide local services with a global outlook. This unique presence offers access to a network of experts in all of your target markets. We support you in your drive to protect public safety and brand value, mitigating your risk with quality assurance and supply chain compliance services. Our trustworthy reputation provides an important product differentiator in a crowded marketplace, communicating safety and quality to original equipment manufacturers, purchasers and regulatory authorities.
