EMC Technologies Ingress Protection testing

Wednesday, 08 April, 2020 | Supplied by: EMC Technologies


Ingress Protection is the rating of the degree of protection provided by an enclosure with respect to foreign object ingress. The foreign object may be dust or accidental, or even intentional, contact with water.

The IP Code is formulated from a possible combination of IP tests to provide the full IP rating code. The IP Codes that are shown on many products are defined by International Protection Marking, often called Ingress Protection Marking. Many electrical, industrial and consumer products require IP testing as it is often mandatory by regulation or by contract condition. It has also become increasingly common for marketing claims. Examples include waterproof mobile phones, sports watches and outside equipment enclosures.

EMC Technologies is accredited to test and issue for IP and can issue accredited NATA or A2LA accredited test reports to IEC 60529 or AS 60529 — degree of protection provided by enclosure (IP Code testing) up to IP6X (dust) and IPX8 (water).

Enclosure Protection testing involves assessing ability of the product or its enclosure to provide protection against: ingress of water (drip, spray, jet or immersion); ingress of dust; solid foreign objects; access to hazardous parts; and mechanical impact.
