Product Description

What is Ingress Protection rating and what does it mean,Become familiarwith the international protection marking used to indicate an electricalenclosures ability to cope with ingress from solids and liquids in harshenvironments.Ingress Protection rating (or just IP rating), is an internationalstandard (IEC 60529) used to rate the degree of protection or sealingeffectiveness in electrical enclosures against intrusion of objects, water,dust or accidental contact. It corresponds to the European standard EN 60529.TheIP code always consists of the letters IP (Ingress Protection) followed by twodigits and an optional letter. The two digits and the last letter indicate theclassified protection below.First digit, Solids protection,The firstdigit following the IP indicates the level of protection of enclosed equipmentagainst ingress of solid foreign objects, and against people accessinghazardous parts such as electric conductors.Level,Object sizeprotected against.Effectiveagainst, X,X means no data available to specify aprotection rating,O,Notprotected,No protection against contact and ingress of objects,1,50 mm in diameter.Any large surface of thebody.No protection against deliberate contact,2,12.5 mm in diameter,Fingers or similarobjects,3,2.5 mm in diameter,Tools, thick wires, etc.4,1 mm in diameter,Most wires, screws, etc.5,Dust protected,Ingress of dust sufficient tocause damage inside the equipment operation Complete protection against contact,6,Dust tight,No ingress of dust,Completeprotection against contact,Second digit Liquids protection,The second digitfollowing IP in the code rating shows the level of equipment protection insidethe enclosure against water ingress.Level,Object size protected against,Effective against,X,X means there is no dataavailable to specify a protection rating,O,Notprotected,No protection against water ingress,1,Dripping water,Vertically falling waterdrops,2,Dripping water when tilted 15,Verticallyfalling water drops when enclosure is tilted 15,3,Spraying water,Water sprayed at an angle 60from the vertical position,4,Splashingwater,Water splashing against the enclosure from any direction,5,Water jets,Water projected by a nozzle (6.3mm) against the enclosure from any direction,6,Powerful water jets,Water projected inpowerful jets (12.5 mm nozzle) against the enclosure from any direction,7,Immersion up to 1 m,Ingress of water whentemporarily immersed (up to 1 m of submersion),8,Immersion beyond 1 m,Ingress of water whencontinuously immersed (beyond 1 m of submersion),9K,Powerful high temperature water jets.Close range,high pressure and high temperature spray downs.Identified as IPX9 in standard IEC 60529. All tests with theletter K are defined by standard ISO 20653.Industrial actuators aretypically used in environments where they are exposed to both liquids and solidobjects. That is why all our actuators with aluminium housings are tested to meet ratings IP66 and IP69K, making them extremelyversatile in various applications.Actuators with an IP66 rating are totallyprotected from dust ingress and powerful water jets from any direction. Thismakes these actuators suitable for outdoor use with changing weatherconditions.In case the application requires wash downs with high pressure waterjets and high temperatures, IP69K is the recommended protection class. This isa common demand in, for example, agricultural machinery, where the actuator isnot necessarily shielded or protected. Here the actuator is exposed to dirt,fertilisers and frequent high pressure washing, typically at the end of a dayin the fields.IP66,Protected from total dust ingress,Protected from high pressurewater jets from any direction.IP69K,Protected from total dust ingress,Protectedfrom steam jet cleaning,This is how we test and determine Ingress Protection at CDG.
