CDG Inspection Ltd aims to deliver a complete solution that is suited to your company's specific requirements with ingress protection testing services from Gurgaon, Haryana. Tests for ingress protection are carried out in line with IEC 60529. The testing will evaluate the equipment's resistance against solid bodies and/or liquids intrusion, with varying degrees of protection based on the demands you set on your product.
The degree to which products/enclosures protect the interior working parts from water, dust, and solids is measured during ingress protection testing. IP testing is necessary for a variety of applications, including mobile phone covers, aircraft electronics, and high-voltage transformers.
Depending on the customer's needs, we perform ingress protection testing in accordance with IEC 60529 for protection against solid foreign objects and/or liquids. Ingress Protection testing, or IP testing, tests a product's ability to protect against “ingress,” that is, the infiltration of water, dust, and foreign objects.
CDG Group provides testing services from IP1x to IP6x (Protection against objects) and IPx1 to IPx9 (Protection against liquids). The first digit of these IP codes indicates the ingress protection against solid bodies and the second digit indicates the protection of the equipment inside the enclosure against the ingress of water.
Standard Ratings for Dust:
IP5X Dust protected: This is tested by inspection to ensure any dust that enters would not interfere with the part’s functionality.
IP6X Dust tight: This rating implies there can be no ingress of dust at all.
Standard Ratings for Ingress by Water:
IPX0 The item is not protected at all against ingress by water.
IPX1 The item is protected against vertically falling water droplets, meaning any droplets that fall on the item will not result in damage or interrupted functioning of components.
IPX2 This rating extends IPX1 by ensuring protection against falling water droplets at an angle up to 15 degrees from vertical.
IPX3 The item is safe from the ingress of sprayed water up to an angle of 60 degrees from vertical impact. The spray can come in an oscillating pattern with a flow rate that depends on the item tested.
IPX4 This rating extends IPX3 to include protection against ingress from splashing water from all directions. It is tested by exposing an item to an oscillating spray for a minimum of 10 minutes. An item passes when there is limited ingress with no harmful effects.
IPX5 The item is protected against ingress from low-pressure water jets directed from any angle if there is limited ingress with no harmful effects.
IPX6 This rating extends IPX5. The water pressure in this test can reach 1 bar.
IPX7 This rating goes further than IPX6 and indicates protection from temporary immersion in water. The rating is given after immersing an item in 1 meter of water for 30 minutes with no harmful effects.
IPX8 This rating extends the IPX7 rating for immersion in water to a greater depth and for longer periods of time. The conditions of the immersion are agreed upon between the manufacturer and the testing facility.
