IK protection test standard
Usually, the application of IK codes, the degree of protection applies to the overall housing. The IK code IK code code indicates the enclosures level of protection against harmful mechanical collisions. The logo indicates that the enclosure is protected against external mechanical collisions using the IK code as specified below. If the relevant product committee decides to require a mark IK code, the mark requirements shall be specified in detail in its relevant product standards. The product standard shall also stipulate the marking method adopted in the following cases 1. The degree of protection of a certain part of the same shell is different from that of other parts 2. The installation status will affect the level of enclosure protection.
What is ik testing?
The IK rating is an international standard that indicates how resistant a product is to impact. The standard BS EN 62262 relates to IK ratings, to identify the degree of protection provided by enclosures for electrical equipment against external mechanical impacts.
Characteristic numbers of IK codes and their definitions
Each set of characteristic numbers represents a collision energy value, the correspondence between the IK code and its corresponding collision energy. In the IEC62262 protection class code, the IK code indicates the protection level of the shell against harmful mechanical collisions to the outside world, and the characteristic number combinations are 01 to 10, i.e. IK01, IK02, IK03, IK04, IK05, IK06, IK07, IK08, IK09 and IK10, collision energy J a 0.14 0. 2 0.35 0.5 0. 7 1 2 5 10 20 In these 10 levels, there are two groups of tests according to different levels of test levels: the first group is spring impact hammer test from IK01, IK02 to IK06, this group test has a smaller energy from 0.14J to 1J The other group is the pendulum test from IK07 IK08 to IK10 which tests with larger energies ranging from 2J to 20J.
For example IK10 vandal rating test refers to the shell impact resistance level of more than 10 that is, the shell can withstand more than 20J energy 5 times, of which the same point can not be impacted more than 4 times, the application of IK code is usually, the protection level is applicable to the overall shell. If some parts of the housing have different degrees of protection, they should be marked with the corresponding degree of protection.
Within the scope of electrical test laboratory services, CDG also provides IK impact protection test services. Thanks to these services, businesses receive more effective, high-performance and quality testing services and provide safe, fast and uninterrupted service to their customers.
