Compliance Testing Standards Background

Compliance Testing Standards

Certified rugged computers ensure flawless performance even through the toughest environments.

All rugged. All the time.

Each Trenton Rugged™ computer is put through a series of in-house stress tests. We literally own a shock & vibe table. We like to think our stress-tests are stricter than most, but anyone can make that claim - that's why we let 3rd party test labs certify our rugged servers to the latest and harshest compliance standards in the industry.

MIL-STD-810

Consists of a broad range of environmental test methods that determine the overall ruggedness or durability of a computer system.

MIL-STD-461

A Military Standard that determines the electromagnetic compatibility of a rugged computer.

MIL-S-901

Measures high impact mechanical shock on rugged computers used for shipboard programs or applications.

DO-160

Environmental Conditions and Test Procedures for Airborne Equipment.

UL

Testing that certifies our rugged servers meet the standards of Underwriters Laboratories, a private testing organization.

CE

For anyone residing in the European Union, our rugged computers meet safety standards and requirements of the CE.

FCC

Our rugged computers are certified to the Federal Communications Commission to make sure that the electronics don't interfere with public airwaves.

MIL-STD-810

The ultimate certification to prove to the world how rugged a product really is. A minimum requirement for Trenton Rugged™ computers.

MIL-STD-461

All about electromagnetic interference limits for military equipment. Consisting of undesired signals emitted by electronic equipment such as a rugged computer. Part of this military standard tests for EMI, so no need to test it separately if you plan on going with that specific test method.

MIL-S-901

A military spec designed for shipboard equipment under heavy stress. It consists of two levels: Grade A and B.

  • Grade A: Equipment that is essential for combat and safety of the ship
  • Grade B: Non-essential equipment for combat and safety of the ship

DO-160

Published by RTCA (Radio Technical Commission for Aeronautics), which is not a government regulation, this specific certification has been adopted by the FAA, EASA and others as a means of compliance for aerospace environmental testing.

UL

A global safety consulting and certification company out of Illinois and is one of the oldest testing agencies in the United States, established in 1894. This certification ensures that a rugged computer is safe to operate and has no adverse effects on the environment.

CE

Most widely recognized across Europe, the CE marking ensures compliance with health, safety, and environmental protection standards for rugged computers sold in or into the EEA (European Economic Area).

FCC

Another electromagnetic certification that ensures limits approved by the Federal Communications Commission for any rugged computers manufactured or sold in the United States.

The Science Behind Compliance

Our rule is simple: stress-test every rugged computer to the core (no pun intended). That means each and every component! We improve the weakest links until they exceed demands.
