Ingress Protection (IP) Testing in Mysore

Product Details:


Product Description

Many products areexposed to all kinds of environmental conditions. These conditions affect theintrusion of solids dust and water into a product. How well is your productdesigned to resist water and solids, dusts, Ingress Protection Rating, Thetype and degree of ingress protection that an enclosure possesses is describedby the Ingress Protection (IP) rating. Standardized tests are applied to obtainan IP rating.The ratings come in two sets, One is for solid bodies (foreignobjects and dust) (the first number after IP), and the other is for liquids(such as water) (the second number after IP). Testing and Test Plan Support CDG offerswater and dust tests on a variety of products for the IEC 60529 standard.Customer specific test plans can be defined to include IP testing. The testingprocess is a 2 step procedure.The first step is the exposure of the device toeither solids dust or water, using a standardized protocol. The second step isthe functional test. The latter can either be an optical inspection or a morededicated functional test, either performed at our IP test facility or at thecustomer site.Dust Testing,Dust testing is often required for medical devicesand consumer electronics. Openings in enclosures  such as fans and vents  can attract dust. As a result, dust canaccumulate inside the device and create product lifetime and safety issueswhich, in the worst case, might cause dust explosions. Other types of productsthat require dust testing are military products and mining and construction equipment.Standard Ratings for Ingress by Dust, IP5X, Dust protected, This is tested by inspectionto ensure any dust that enters would not interfere with the part sfunctionality. IP6X, Dust tight, This rating implies there can be no ingress ofdust at all. Ratings for Ingress by Water, IPX0, The item is not protected atall against ingress by water. IPX1, The item is protected against verticallyfalling water droplets, meaning any droplets that fall on the item will notresult in damage or interrupted functioning of components. IPX2, This ratingextends IPX1 by ensuring protection against falling water droplets at an angleup to 15 degrees from vertical. IPX3, The item is safe from ingress of sprayedwater up to an angle of 60 degrees from vertical impact. The spray can come inan oscillating pattern with a flow rate that depends on the item tested. IPX4, Thisrating extends IPX3 to include protection against ingress from splashing waterfrom all directions. It is tested by exposing an item to an oscillating sprayfor a minimum of 10 minutes. An item passes when there is limited ingress withno harmful effects. IPX5, The item is protected against ingress from low pressurewater jets directed from any angle if there is limited ingress with no harmfuleffects. IPX6, This rating extends IPX5. The water pressure in this test canreach 1 bar. IPX7, This rating goes further than IPX6 and indicates protectionfrom temporary immersion in water. The rating is given after immersing an itemin 1 meter of water for 30 minutes with no harmful effects. IPX8, This ratingextends the IPX7 rating for immersion in water to a greater depth and to longerperiods of time. The conditions of the immersion are agreed upon between themanufacturer and the testing facility.
