ATS has acquired a turnkey system to perform Ingress Protection Testing. IP testing assesses the capacity of products/enclosures to offer protection of the working parts against water, dust and solids.
IP testing is critical for a wide range of applications from cell phone cases and aerospace electronics to high-voltage transformers.
The IP ratings depend on the target use and are identified as 'IP XY' where the first digit ('X', from 1-6) indicates the level of protection against solids and dust while the second digit ('Y', from 1-9) indicates the level of protection against water.
ATS now has the capability to test all possible combinations (water drip, spray, jet, dust, and solid probes), including the most severe IP69 (dust tight and protection against high water pressure, steam and water immersion).
This new field complements ATS’ already impressive capabilities for environmental simulations.
