What is an IP test?

What is an IP test?

Ingress Protection testing, or IP testing, determines a product’s susceptibility to solid particle ingress (sand or dust) as well as water ingress. Element utilizes calibrated IP testing equipment, including immersion tanks, nozzles and dust specific to the IP rating required.

How do you get an IP rating?

To get an IP rating for your product, you must arrange to test it. This should be done by an independent, certified company. The independent company will then give the product a numerical IP rating, based on the tests they have put it through.

How do IP ratings work?

An IP rating is, in summary, a two digit code. The first digit establishes the level of protection against intrusion of foreign bodies. The second the resistance against moisture intrusion. Together, this informs you of precise the level of protection that will be offered by the specific case or enclosure.

How do you conduct an ip65 test?

Procedure Water is continuously sprayed on the sample unit for at least 3 minutes; with at least 12.5 liters per minute (r5㧑) of water sprayed on approximately 1 square meter of the sample unit for 1 minute. During the test, the nozzle is at a distance of 3 meters from the sample unit.

Who gives the IP rating?

It is published by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC). The equivalent European standard is EN 60529.

What is Mobile IP rating?

IP, or Ingress Protection, is a universally accepted measurement of varying degrees for dust and liquid resistance. If your phone features an IP rating of 68, that means you can bring it with you on adventures and take comfort in knowing that you can carry on using these devices.

Is standard for IP protection?

The standard, prepared by IEC Technical Committee 70, uses the IP code to rate the degrees of protection offered by the enclosure of electrical equipment with a rated voltage of a maximum of 72,5 kV. The standard also defines the tests to be performed to verify that the enclosure meets these requirements.

What is ip6k?

The IP Code, or Ingress Protection Code is defined in IEC standard 60529 which classifies and rates the degree of protection provided by mechanical casings and electrical enclosures against intrusion, dust, accidental contact, and water. It is published by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC).

What is IP rating of 65?

A fixture with an IP rating of 65 is protected against multi-directional, low-pressure water jets. In order to pass testing and achieve an IP65 rating, fixtures must be able to withstand water projected by a 0.25-inch nozzle.

What is IP tester?

IP stands for ingress protection and tests the ability of your product to withstand everything from finger tips to a high pressure jet of high temperature water. The testing is by enclosure and your product does not have to be populated with the electronics in order to undergo the testing.

What does IP55 rated mean?

IP55 – means Ingress Protection(IP) these are protection ratings of motors like IP44 ,IP54, IP55 all these motors have different capacity and quality from protection view .protection from direct contact of any moving part or dust and water .

What does an IP67 rating mean?

IP67 (outdoor) The IP67 rating officially stands for “temporary immersion to at least 1m from bottom and 15cm from top of object”. This means that the product is fully sealed against dust and can actually be fully emerged into water for a small period of time.
