Importance of the certification
The G3-PLC Alliance was formed in order to support, promote and implement G3-PLC in smart grid applications. Since smart grid implementations require major investments the issuing of certificates is very important. High quality certificates will give both vendors and users assurance that their meters, data concentrators and other devices have the correct implementation of the G3-PLC standard, that they are interoperable with other certified devices and meet the specified performance levels.
Therefore, many G3-PLC Alliance members have been working closely together to define the G3-PLC certification program, leveraging all available expertise to meet the needs of all stakeholders.
Members of the Alliance can find all details of the certification program here.
How to certify your product?
Testing for G3-PLC Certification is performed by two selected test laboratories: LAN in France and TÜVRheinland in Japan. The interoperability plugfest is operated by Trialog in Paris.These laboratories conduct a series of tests developed and maintained by the G3-PLC Alliance.
