|How Do I Bring and Use Electrical Equipment at the ALS?|
All electrical equipment must meet minimum electrical safety requirements. Whenever possible, we rely on third party organizations like Underwriters Laboratories (UL). The simplest, quickest, cheapest, most reliable way to have equipment approved is to make sure that it has a label from a Nationally Recognized Testing Lab (NRTL).
All equipment will be reviewed prior to the experiment run. ALS staff will evaluate not just the piece of equipment, but its role in the overall beamline and how it will be used. To make this process more efficient, please make sure that a staff person from your group who is knowledgeable about your equipment is available when these reviews are scheduled.
