Electrical Laboratory


The Electrical Testing Laboratory carries out analysis of electrical products and appliances to assess their compliance with Uganda and International standards.The laboratory carries  electrical measurements, their accuracy, uncertainties and traceability to National and International Standards.

The Electrical Laboratory maintains National Standards for electrical units of ac and dc measurements like Voltage, Current, Resistance, Capacitance, Inductance, electrical energy and frequency.

Dissemination of units of measurement is effected through a traceable chain of calibrations done on electrical instruments like multimeters, Voltmeters, Ammeters, kWh-meters (energy meters), frequency meters, Thermocouples, Digital temperature indicators, Oscilloscopes and others.

 Electricalproducts analysed in the Electrical Laboratory include:

  • Electrical wires
  • Cables
  • Conductors
  • Incandescent lamps
  • Dry cells; and
  • Solar products.
