Product Description

It is important toknow the meaning of the codes IP represents. IP (commonly known as IngressProtection) serves as a metric to classify and rate the protection againstintrusions into electronics. By definition, this level of protectionis provided by stopping the introduction of dust, debris and liquids into adevice by utilizing mechanical casings and enclosures like seals and gaskets.Theidea, of course, is that if these damaging substances and materials never makeit to the components that allow electronics to function, that the risk ofdamage and failure decreases significantly. No arguing that. But to get abetter understanding of what that means, lets take a closer look at what IPX7and IP67 mean as defined by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), IP( Ingress Protection),1st Digit , dust protection(Scale 0 to 6),2nd Digit, water protection (Scale 0 to 9),What Does IPX7 Waterproof Mean,IPX7 Protection from immersionin one meter of water for 30 minutes. The X, in this case, means the metricdoes not address the ingress of dust.What Does IP67 Waterproof Mean,IP67, Protectionfrom dust ingress and complete immersion in one meter of water for 30 minutes.IPRating Tests Explained,As indicated, the bigger the number, the moreintense the test, but does that really equate to better security, According tothe test definition it does, but to actually claim an IP certification meansthat a device must only survive one event to pass and claim the certification.Inthe lab that seems like a fine methodology, but once products are in the handsof users how does that test translate into real world protection,Will a devicesurvive one isolated incident, but not two,Will all devices perform to thedefinition of the IP ratings, Those are questions that lead to a conversationabout warranty language, and thats a discussion for another day. The shortanswer is that device makers promoting IP certifications tread lightly when itcomes to making waterproof claims, and considering what it takes to get thecertification that comes with good reason.CDG Protected Devices and IPTesting,As they are designed, IP standards leave little room for solutionslike those provided by CDG that waterproof products with technologythat is more advanced and that comes with greater benefits than traditionalseals and gaskets. If IP standards are measured by a devices ability to keepwater out, what does that mean for a nanotechnology that is applied directly tocomponents during manufacturing that could essentially eliminate the need forseals, gaskets or cases, All of a sudden, the world is confronted with a seriesof testing standards that dont address the future of product innovation, watersafeguarding and ultimately device freedom.Again, by definition it could besaid that CDG doesnt achieve IPX7 and IP67 because our solution permits fullwater and dust ingress. It doesnt matter if debris or liquids penetrate the outercasing because the products themselves are protected from anydirection with a thin film barrier.If you were to rely on actual results,however, CDG undoubtedly passes and goes well beyond the defined parameters ofthese standard tests. A testament to the longevity of our technologyis highlighted with our CDG Protected Raspberry Pi demo, which runscontinually at events and trade shows for up 10 hours a day, week after week,logging hundreds of hours of submersion and sustained functionality.Testingto Define the Future,While we believe that product spin shouldnever disguise the truth about what level of performance a water protecteddevice is truly capable of delivering, it seems as though current testingdefinitions have yet to keep pace with the nanotechnology solutions that willdrive the next wave of livable, Swimmable and more integrated products. Anaccurate definition of testing that aligns with existing protectivetechnologies will mean an overhaul of the current standards. That will meanrethinking how testing is conducted, how its observed, and how it issuccessfully measured beyond the scope of a singular test, both in the lab andin the real world. Its an initiative thats imperative to keep things honest,paint a more accurate picture of the truth behind the testing and theapplicable technology, and one that CDG is actively helping push forward.Contact us today to learn more about how CDG solutions areprotecting electronics beyond IPX7 and IP67, and giving manufacturers across awide range of industries the means to deliver greater freedom to the end usersof their products. Electronics have become a part of everything we do, whetherits work, play or education, the devices we use have become pervasive with ourvery existence. Yet with as integrated as technology has become we are oftenbound by the limitations of where devices can go, especially when it comes toplaces that are known to be hazardous to the survival and longevity of thoseproducts.As more device makers and manufacturers seek to adopt solutionsthat address the issue of water damage, the call for testing standards thatdefine what level of protection a device has is becoming increasingly importantto not only the makers of components, sensors, PCBs and finished assemblies,but also to the end users of those products.Electronic WaterproofRatings,With an increasing demand for accurate claims and less spin fromcompanies about what kind of safeguarding electronics actually provide,manufacturers are putting emphasis on water protection as a feature byciting IPCode ratings. These are a series of ingressprotection testing standards that have been around for years, but with therise of water resistant consumer devices emerging the certifications that aregetting the most attention these days are IPX7 and IP67.So what dothose IP codes and ratings mean, and do they really provide assurancethat a device is going to survive a drop in the sink, a cycle through thewashing machine or any other accidental or intentional exposure to a damp,soggy or otherwise wet and threatening environment.
