Design LonMark Certification Right Into Your Products
Certifying products is now easier than ever. The LonMark Certification Tool (LCT) is a web-based tool designed to speed the time and reduce the cost of certifying devices.
Demand for open, LonMark certified products is growing rapidly. Now you can capitalize on the growing demand for certified products by certifying your products. Products that have been verified to conform to LonMark interoperability guidelines are eligible to carry the LonMark logo. Displaying the LonMark logo on your products is an indicator that they have completed the LonMark certification tests and have been designed to interoperate with other LonMark certified products.
The number of applications for LonMark certification is growing rapidly. To make sure your products are on-track for certification, design conformance into them by following the LonMark Interoperability Guidelines v3.4.

The LCT is now available to all LonMark Sponsor and Partner members that manufacture devices or controllers. The tool provides members with a friendly user interface that guides them through the certification process using an intuitive checklist. In addition to testing the usual device-interface file and device resource files associated with certification, the tool supports physical testing of a device as well.
Licensed users of the tool will be able to conduct the entire certification process online, and a web-based payment system is on its way to allow certification-testing payments to be made online.
The web-based, browser-embedded tool is maintained by LonMark International; ensuring that the submitting company is always using the latest version of the software. A small executable file is downloaded from the tool to test the physical network interface of the device using off-the-shelf interface cards for the PC running the tests. The online part of the tool will let the submitter know if they have downloaded the latest physical testing utility.
