Derby Cycle Surprised by ADAC Test Results
CLOPPENBURG, Germany – “An independent test laboratory confirmed in 2011 that the drive system used in the model tested by ADAC and Stiftung Warentest complies with the requirements of the Electromagnetic Compatibility Directive (EMC Directive 2004/108/EC)”, said Germany’s e-bike market leader Derby Cycle in a company statement.
In response to the e-bike test of the Germany Automobile club ADAC and the consumer organization ‘Stiftung Warentest’ (click here for more) Derby Cycle was ‘surprised about the results’.
‘Fulfill all necessary criteria of EMC’
Derby Cycle continues: “The renowned and independent test institute SLG Testing and Certification GmbH confirmed on 28 February 2011 that an e-bike, which is essentially identical to the one tested by Stiftung Warentest, fulfills all necessary criteria of EMC regarding the shielding for electromagnetic radiation.”
For this reason and because the concrete test results are not yet known in detail, Derby Cycle anticipates that its e-bikes comply with the legal requirements.
Derby Cycle is currently seeking an intensive investigation of the facts and will immediately take a position as soon as more information about the test conditions is known.
