Compliance | LabJack


Many of our products have been tested for CE marking, which reflects FCC compliance, EMC (electromagnetic compatibility), EMI (electromagnetic interference), RF emissions, RF immunity, and the ability to survive ESD (electrostatic discharge).  Part of the CE mark, is that we make a Declaration of Conformity where we point out what standards the devices have been tested to.  You can generally find the declarations on the datasheet for a particular device, but here are some fancier versions.

All LabJack-branded products are CEREACH, RoHS2, and CFM (conflict-free minerals) compliant.


CE Declarations of Conformity:

Attached below.


Conflict Free Minerals:

Attached below is our conflict minerals (CM) policy document and our conflict minerals reporting template (CMRT).



Attached below is a document stating RoHS and REACH compliance.


Letter of Volatility (LoV):

Letters of volatility describe the various memory within a device, what is volatile and what is non-volatile, how information can be stored in memory, and how memory can be cleared.  Letters of volatility are attached below, and if your device is not listed contact us and we can add it.


Certificate of Conformance:

Also called Certificate of Conformity, Certificate of Compliance or CoC, this is a simple industry standard document stating that our products comply with our standards for quality, specifications and workmanship.  A blanket CoC is attached to this page.  If you need a different variation just let us know.  Also attached is a CoC from Electronic Innovations (EIC).


UL, CSA, or similar electrical safety standards:

All our products are low voltage and these electrical safety standards do not apply.  In the case of the RB12 & RB16, the modules used on these devices (provided by other manufacturers) might have a UL listing or similar.



LabJack's red enclosures:  UL 94 HB, Sabic Polycarbonate Lexan 143R, E75735.
LabJack's PCBs:  UL 94V-0, E304660 (M1 or N2).
Screw Terminals:  UL 94V-0, Thermoplastic, E245249.
Snaptrack:  UL 94V-0, PVC, E58648.
RB12/UE9 Power Jack:  UL 94V-0, PBT 4815, E59481.
USB Connector:  E59481, PBT UL 94V Rated
Pin Headers:  E53664, 30% Glass Fiber PBT


Country of Origin:

Per export definitions, the official Country of Origin for all LabJack-branded products is USA.

All software written by LabJack also has the Country of Origin of USA.

We do not claim the phrase "Made in the USA", as that has a specific definitation that requires virtually 100% USA content which is not possible for any electronics.  You would have to mine all the raw materials in the USA and manufacture all the chips and components here, which is just not happening.



Export codes are assigned to everything we sell.  For example, the schedule B code for the T7 is 8471.60.1050 and applies to the entire package, so the T7 itself, power supply, USB cable, Ethernet cable, screwdriver, packaging, firmware and software.  Firmware and software are part of our hardware.  We do not sell any firmware and software so these do not have their own export codes.

Schedule B / HS / HTS:
Main Devices (U3, T7, etc.):  8471.60.1050
Accessories designed for use with LJ main devices:  8473.30.0002
Sensors:  9031.49.8000
3rd Party:  Codes provided by manufacturer

Which means license is NLR (no license required) as long as we don't export to the prohibited countries.

Prohibited Countries:
Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Sudan and Syria

Does not apply to our products


Availability Status, End of Life (EOL):

Following is the production status for all data acquisition (DAQ) devices ever made by LabJack:

  • U12 (2001): NRND (not recommended for new designs). No plans to discontinue. This is our oldest device, and we have newer devices that are recommended for new users, but as of this writing there have been no hints that any major sub-components will become unavailable.
  • UE9 (2004): LIMITED (limited availability) expected through 2022, then likely NLA (no longer available) after that. All variations.  Many parts needed to build the UE9 have been discontinued by their manufacturers, and production of the UE9 has become increasingly difficult and expensive.   T7 is a newer replacement that is better in every way including cost.
  • U3 (2006): Active. All variations of U3-HV and U3-LV. No plans to discontinue. See Section 2.13 of the U3 Datasheet for information about older hardware variations.
  • U6 (2009): Active. All variations. No plans to discontinue.
  • T7 (2013): Active. All variations. No plans to discontinue.
  • T4 (2017): Active. All variations. No plans to discontinue.

Production status of other devices made or sold by LabJack:

End Of Life (EOL) Notice, EI-1050:
NLA (no longer available):  The EI-1050, manufactured by Electronic Innovations Corporation and sold by LabJack, has been discontinued as the Sensirion sensor it uses is no longer availalable.  See the top of the EI-1050 Datasheet for information about alternates.


Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF):

We have not done official MTBF analysis or testing ourselves for any of our devices.  Our devices are made of normal semiconductor components, and no components with a rating in terms of limited lifetime.  It is rare for our devices to fail on their own.  Overwhelmingly, all failed devices we see have damage attributed to an out-of-spec voltage/current that has been introduced to the device from some external source.  That is the nature of a DAQ device like ours that has so many user controlled connections (communication/power, ground, and lots of I/O).

The following link mentions a DoD document that provides a way to come up with an MTBF number based on models, which some of our customers do:

Here is a quote from someone at a major university who needed to assign an MTBF to our products for some reason:

"Typically, for an electronic device such as yours, with off the shelf components, and with an approximate number of parts-by-count of roughly 50, I should expect an MTBF of 30K~75k hours. I'll probably utilize some figure within that range."

50k hours is about 6 years of continuous use, which we can say from experience is too low.  We would estimate the correct statistical MTBF is more like 100 years, which is 876k hours.  That is, if you operated 100 devices continuously for 10 years you could expect 10 failures not due to external forces to happen over that time.  So our estimate for MTBF would be 500k hours.
