The Australian Flow Management Group (AFMG) have the capacity to test electrical components to several immunity standards. These tests are conducted and reported against Australian and/or international standards.
We also offer testing of electrical equipment to determine Ingress Protection (IP) ratings or IP68. The commissioning and use of this system is based on two standards:
- AS 60529 Degrees of protection provided by enclosures (IP Code)
- IEC 60512-11-8 Section 8: Test 11h _ Sand and dust
With respect to NMI M 10 and NMI R 49, the AFMG is capable of conducting these IP rating tests on water meters.
Most of the testing services offered are covered by the AFMG's NATA scope of accreditation.
