IP Code Testing

Available with IEC/ISO 17025 Certificate of Calibration
Ingress Protection Test Equipment is used to determine the degree of protection provided by a product enclosure. The level of protection provided by an enclosure is represented by an "IP" code (i.e. IP43). The first digit indicates protection against ingress of solid foreign objects. Many of these tests require accessibility probes. The equipment for these tests is provided below. All equipment fully complies with IEC 60529 (IP Code standard) and all other international standards with similar tests.

IP Code PROBES All Products (IP Code Testing)
1X Protection against objects >50mm X1 Protection against vertically dripping water
2X Protection against objects >12.5mm X2 Dripping water ± 15° from vertical
3X Protection against objects >2.5mm X3 Protection against spraying water
4X Protection against objects >1.0mm X4 Protection against splashing water
5X Dust Protected (limited ingress) X5 Protection against low pressure jetting water
6X Dust Tight Protection X6 Protection against high pressure jetting water

  • Completely adjustable tube height system allows moving the tube up/down to quickly establish the maximum 200 mm spacing from the spray nozzles as specified in the standards.
  • Completely adjustable tube mounting system = allows for different size spray tubes to be easily installed.
  • Folds to the wall when not in use (very beneficial)-the entire top beam and tube drive system has an integral heavy pin system that allows it to be folded to the wall in seconds after use = no far end tube support mouned to the floor!
