ETL Mark guarantees Piller UPS as the best in quality and safety
Piller has once again achieved coveted certification under the Intertek SATELLITE™ Program to mark its power protection technology with the ETL Listed Mark.
ETL is an important mark as it provides proof of product compliance to North American safety and quality standards, such as the UL standards for products sold in the USA and the CSA standards for products sold in Canada.
In addition, the Intertek SATELLITE™ Program certification allows Piller’s test centre at its headquarters in Osterode, Germany, to carry out its own in-house testing and measurements to ensure that its power protection products meet ETL mark requirements.
Guaranteeing quality assurance across the entire production chain is a precondition for the Intertek SATELLITE™ Program certification. As a result, continuous testing processes in production and test bays are required; what's more, only highly qualified staff from the test bay and System Engineering Department are entitled to carry out the tests needed for certification.
Dr. Detlev Seidel, Managing Director, Operations, Piller Group, said:
"With Piller’s testing facility being one of few locations in Germany accredited to SATELLITE™ Laboratory Level 3, we place particular emphasis on ensuring that any products achieving the ETL Listed Mark meet the most stringent qualitative criteria, this highlights Piller’s pledge to provide equipment for uninterruptible power supplies that meets the highest standards of quality and safety".

The history of Intertek's ETL Mark began when Thomas Edison founded the first independent electrical testing laboratory in 1896, soon after to be named Electrical Testing Laboratory (ETL), to evaluate the quality and safety of his own inventions. Today, billions of ETL Marks appear on products across North America as evidence of compliance to product safety standards, including household appliances, consumer electronics, medical devices, life safety and, among many others, security products. The ETL Mark has become the premier product safety mark for global manufacturers concerned with safety and market entry of innovative technologies such as Piller mission criticial UPS systems. The Data Acceptance Program (SATELLITE™) conducts testing in the manufacturer's own lab, to their own schedule giving the manufacturer control of their product certification program.
