Product Description

IEC 60529 Ingress Protection Testing, IEC 60529 compliance testing is a popular ingress protection teststandard. Ingress protection determines the ability of an enclosure to protectits contents. The ingress testing is for both solids and liquids. The degree ofprotection is called the IP Code. The ingress protection rating consists of theletters  IP and then either two digits orone digit and one letter. There can also be an additional optional letter. Thefirst digit is the protection from solid particles. The second digit is theprotection from liquids. The requirements of IEC 60529 testing are identical tothose detailed in EN 60529 testing.IEC 60529 labs test various cases and enclosures. One popular test item isenclosures for electrical equipment. The standard is such that it coversprotection of persons and equipment. Protection from Solid Foreign Objects  and Dust,IEC Standard 60529 provides guidelines for the protection from solidobjects. The amount of protection is specified in an IP ratings table. Solidobjects can include particles such as dustingress. It can alsoinclude larger items such as hands, fingers and probes. The IP degree ofprotection will depend on the results of the enclosure test. The first numberin the IP marking is protection against solids. The numbers range from zero tosix. An IP ingress rating of 0 means no protection. The ingress protectionmeaning of a one is solid objects greater than 50 mm. The IEC 60529 teststandard considers a rating of two as protection from solid objects greaterthan 12.5 mm. An IP of three means IP ingress protection against solid objectsgreater than 2.5 mm. Enclosures rated four offer protection from items that aresolid objects greater than one mm. In summary number one through four means theenclosure cannot access probes and objects. Conversely, the IP rating testresults of five and six are both dust testing related. This ingress protectionstandard classifies a five as dust protected. A six is dust tight. ProtectionAgainst Water, The IEC 60529 andthe EN 60529 standards are very specific about water testing. For example, theduration, flow rate, temperature, depth and angle of the water is spelled out.The ingress protection table includes requirements from dripping water toimmersion testing. Corrosion testing and high pressure water can be included. Likethe solid foreign objects, a liquid enclosure rating of zero means no protection.A one means the enclosure protects against dripping water. A twomeans the unit offers water ingress protection from dripping water testingtitled up to 15 degrees. A rating of three covers spraying water testing.A rating of four is splashing water testing. The harmful effects of water jets arecovered by a five in this international standard. Water ingress testing ofpowerful water jets is a six. The IP rating standard considers immersion testing upto one meter to be a seven. Immersion protection beyond one meter is an 8. IPX9would be powerful steam jets protection.It should be noted that there can be an immersion test for corrosion. Theingress protection definition can also require conditioning of the liquid attemperature. It is important that the ingress protection test equipment be ableto meet the requirements. Additional Enclosure Testing Clarification, The IP Code can be appended byadditional letters. These letters classify the level of protection againsthazardous parts by persons. They can also provide additional informationrelated to the protection of the device, A Back of hand, B  Finger,C  Tool D  Wire, H  High voltage device, M  Device moving duringwater test, S  Device standing still during water test, W Weather conditions. MechanicalImpact Resistance numbers are sometimes used. They identify the energy neededto qualify a specified resistance level. These levels are measured in joules(J). It is important to note that mechanical impact resistance was dropped fromthe third edition of IEC 60529 onwards. Sample IP Ratings, Enclosures can have an IP54 ratingmeaning the device is protected from dust and splashing water. Ingressprotection IP67 cases are dust tight and immersion protected up to one meter.IEC 60529 IP67 is one of the more popular ratings. Conversely, IP68 under IECstandard 60529 means an enclosure that is dust tight and protected to immersionbeyond one meter. The ingress protection levels summarize the degrees ofprotection provided by enclosures. Different types of cases and enclosures mustmeet different IP test levels. In addition to IEC 60529 there are other ingressand water immersion test methods. Our website highlights the most popularcommercial and military test standards. Finding the Proper Ingress ProtectionCompliance Partner, There areapproximately 70 different ingress protection markings. Keystone Compliance isaccredited to all of them. We are ISO 17025 accredited and our test reports areaccepted globally. We are recognized as one of the best IP Code test labs inthe country, mainly because of our experience.
