Certification & Quality Approvals

> Meeting industrial certifications specific to different industries

Certified to perform in even the harshest environments

Winmate promotes standardization of material, facilities, and engineering practices to improve industrial safety standards and regulations, while reducing the total cost of ownership and acquisition cycle time. Our materials, tools, facilities, engineering, and testing practices are designed to ensure reliability and durability.


At Winmate we developed and implemented a quality management system based on a process management approach. This allows us to maintain consistency in product service and support, and meet all applicable regulatory requirements, while remaining nimble and flexible enough to evolve with technology and industry need. The quality system complies with the international standard ISO 9001:2008 and the standards which apply to related industries.


Below are the standards we adhere to:

  • MIL-STD-810G

    The MIL-STD-810 test series are approved for use by all departments and agencies of the United States Department of Defense (DoD). MIL-STD-810 addresses a broad range of environmental conditions that include: low pressure for altitude testing; exposure to high and low temperatures plus temperature shock (both operating and in storage); rain (including wind blown and freezing rain); humidity, fungus, salt fog for rust testing; sand and dust exposure; explosive atmosphere; leakage; acceleration; shock and transport shock; gunfire vibration; and random vibration. The standard describes environmental management and engineering processes that can be of enormous value to generate confidence in the environmental worthiness and overall durability of a system design.

  • EN50155

    The EN50155 standard is a guidebook that governs the design and testing of electronic equipment used on railway vehicles and related rail applications. To meet the EN50155 requirement, the components must go through a series of strict tests including EMC, cooling, damp heat, salt mist, vibration, and shock tests.

  • EN61373

    This International Standard specifies the requirements for testing equipment for railway vehicles which are subjected to vibrations and shock. To ensure the operation of the equipments, it has to withstand tests of reasonable duration to simulate the service condition throughout its expected life.


    Simulated long-life testing is achieved by amplification, where amplitudes are increased and the time base decreased.


    Test carried out on Winmate Equipment using test values for Category 1 Body Mounted, Class B, which is defined as anything mounted inside an equipment case which is turn mounted directly on or under the car body.

  • Class 1 Division 2 Group A-D and ATEX

    Winmate has addressed the Request for Panel PC equipment that can withstand Hazardous Location (Hazloc), where flammable substance may be present with C1D2 (for US and Canada market) and ATEX (for European market) certification on 15-inch Stainless Panel PC. In the US market we follow NEC, which place Hazloc into classes, divisions, and groups. For the rest of the market, IEC Classifies Hazloc by zones.

    (National Electric Code)
    According to OSHA, NEC defines hazardous locations as those areas where fire or explosion hazards may exist due to flammable gases or vapors, flammable liquids, combustible dust of ignitable fibers or flyings. NEC classified Hazardous locations in three ways; Type, Condition, and Nature.
    (International Electrochemical Commission)
    IEC Defines the flammable gases and vapors and then flammable dust, each of this type are assigned into three different zone and each zone then requires equipment built for category I,II or III
    This following figure will help users catch a basic understanding on both classifications
    Winmate 15" Stainless Steel Panel PC has passed various tests and certifications for Hazardous area deployment

  • DNV 2.4, IEC60945, IACS-E10

    Winmate marine products are built and tested according to DNV standard certification 2.4, IEC60945, and IACS-E10 and most of the products are certified by Det Norske Veritas (DNV), the Norwegian foundation internationally certifying materials, components and system relevant to safe operation and quality of ships.

    DNV 2.4 DET NORSKE VERITAS (DNV) is an autonomous and independent foundation with the objectives of safeguarding life, property and the environment at sea and on shore. DNV certification related to quality of ships, offshore units and installations of the system and components. DNV Requirements are harmonized with IACS Unified Requirements E10 and IEC publication 60945.
    IACS-E10 International Association of Classification Societies (IACS) is an organization that provides technical support and guidance for promoting the safety of life, property and the environment through the verification of compliance with technical and engineering standards for the design, construction and life-cycle maintenance of ships, offshore units and other marine-related facilities
    IEC 60945 Equipment wished to be use in navigation and radio communication systems is to comply with IEC Publication No. 60945, “Maritime navigation and radio communication equipment and systems – General Requirements- Method of testing and required test results”

    Standard for Certification

    DNV classifies tests in four levels base on the product applied location in ships-A, B, C, and D. For worse harsh environment use, the much strict standard testing is required. (See Table of Location Classes Selection Guide) Standards for Certification including contain principles, acceptance criteria and practical information related to the Society's consideration of objects, personnel, organizations, services and operations. A list of Standards for Certification is found in the latest edition of Pt.0 Ch.1 of the "Rules for Classification of Ships" and the "Rules for Classification of High Speed, Light Craft and Naval Surface Craft"
