A NEBS compliance certificate is awarded to electrical equipment that meets the personal safety requirements of GR-63-CORE and GR-1089-CORE, meets the operating requirements for a specific type of interior environment (e.g., a data center), or meets the safety requirements and operating requirements of GR-63-CORE and GR-1089-CORE. These types of certification are referred to as Level 1, Level 2, and Level 3, respectively. The level of NEBS certification a company needs an inverter to possess depends on the environment where the equipment will be used.

Situations That Require NEBS Compliance

Because Level 1 and Level 2 certified devices demonstrate the least amount of resistance to environmental stressors, they are implemented far less frequently than devices that have Level 3 certification. For this reason, it makes the most sense to list situations which justify the use of inverters that require a Level 3 NEBS compliance certificate, such as the ones listed below. For a complete list of situations that require Level 3 certification, contact Exeltech today.

High Humidity

Environments that contain high humidity routinely cause electrical connections to oxidize, sabotaging the operation of the device that contains them. The components used in NEBS Level 3 inverters prevents the equipment from experiencing this type of corrosion.

Extreme Temperatures

High temperatures that cause electronics to overheat and low temperatures that cause electrical components to experience condensation as they heat up can have a major impact on an inverter’s lifespan. Inverters with Level 3 certification are designed for extreme temperatures.

Airborne Contaminants

Manufacturing environments that contain airborne contaminants are infamous for causing electrical devices to corrode internally and experience premature failure during service. Equipment that has Level 3 certification is designed to stand up to airborne contaminants.

Heavy Vibration

Environments that produce heavy vibration can cause inverters to experience loose parts and compromised electrical connections that lead to failure during service. Level 3 devices possess rigid, reinforced construction that helps them perform well in environments with heavy vibration.
