News for Cuba
IB-Lenhardt AG goes to Cuba
In July, IBL travelled to Cuba. In Havana, the Capital of Cuba, our specialist for Latin American countries from IBL's type approval team visited the authority Ministerio de Comunicaciones de Cuba (MINCOM) which is responsible for the issuance of the type approval certificates - where she was cordially and friendly received. Furthermore, IBL AG took the apportunity to attend a meeting at the national laboratory "Empresa de Servicios Profesionales y Técnicos" (ESAC) which is located in Havana as well.
In essence, IBL had the chance to discuss all running projects personally. In addition, a road map was created in order to ameliorate and fasten up future type approval projects in order to optimize the application process and therefore, consistently provide first class service to IBL's customers.
Thanks to today's communication capabilities, a fruitful collaboration over thousands of miles is certainly possible, nevertheless, a face-to-face encounter and IBL's personal appearance took the professional relationship to another level.
77 GHz - Declaration of Conformity
Cuba's Ministerio de la Informática y las Comunicaciones 'MINCOM' issues Declarations of Conformity for 77 GHz devices based on technical documentation evaluations.
Local tests are not required for the above stated devices.
The Declaration of Conformity has a validity period of 5 years.

New implemented were the frequency bands 866-869 and 915-921 MHz for RFID
Due to reorganization, MINCOM (Ministerio de Comunicación) took over MIC as RF & telecom authority since 2013-02-23 and still processes radio type approval. Wireless Devices using radio spectrum require homologation and local testing is necessary (for further information: Resolution No. 137/2003, No. 127/2011 and No. 156/2011).
The Type A electrical plug (or flat blade attachment plug) is an ungrounded plug with two flat parallel pins. Although the American and Japanese plugs appear identical, the neutral pin on the American plug is wider than the live pin, whereas on the Japanese plug both pins are the same size. As a result, Japanese plugs can be used in the US but often not the other way around. The pins on Type A and Type B plugs have a hole near the tip that fits into ‘bumps’ found on the contact wipers of some sockets, so that the pins are gripped more tightly allowing for better contact and also to prevent the plug from slipping out of the socket. Some sockets have spring-action blades that grip the sides of the pins, making the holes obsolete.
The Type B electrical plug has two flat parallel pins and a round grounding (or earth) pin. The earth pin is longer than the other two so that the device is grounded before the power is connected. As with the type A plugs, the American and Japanese versions vary slightly. Type B plugs are rated at 15 amps.
