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
UL UL Standard Test Equipment X6K Extremely high pressure jetting water

TFP-01 Jointed Finger Probe
Product Details

This is the "international" test finger required by most IEC, EN and CSA standards, in addition to many UL standards. The Jointed Finger Probe is a high-precision probe built in exact accordance with IEC standards such as IEC 60950, IEC 61010, and is also used for CSA and UL standards. It features a palm simulator to prevent misuse, and restricted joint movement which simulates human finger movement. The finger is made of chrome-plated steel and the rest of the instrument is Delrin®.

This is the ONLY Finger Probe available with a integral jack in the handle for continuity testing - as mandated by the IECEE CB Scheme.
