AC motor capacitors are now BIS compliant
EPCOS AC motor capacitors manufactured in India now fulfill all requirements of the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS), which has been verified by accredited laboratories.
EPCOS India has received an ISI license number according to the IS 2993:1998 standard, and all EPCOS AC motor capacitors now bear the ISI marking. Through its full compliance with BIS mandate, TDK has underscored its reputation of being a leader in the Indian electronic components market by not only carrying the ISI marking, but also by ensuring that these ISI-marked capacitors are already available for customers. In fact, some EPCOS PFC capacitors are already BIS compliant and have been carrying the ISI marking for the past several years.
“We appreciate this policy initiative by the Government of India and efforts undertaken by the BIS toward creating a safe environment for use of electrical and electronic items,” said Natarajan Balakrishnan, Managing Director of EPCOS India. “The BIS mandate also ensures that there is a level playing field with respect to the specifications with which a product is produced. With India being one of our key markets, it is critical for us to obtain these certifications as per the new norms, and we are happy to be one of the first few capacitor manufacturers to do so.”
