ATS’ environmental simulation lab offers Ingress Protection Testing services.
Ingress protection testing assesses the degree to which products/enclosures protect the inner 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, which are outlined by the international ingress protection testing standard IEC 60529, depend of 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 1-8) indicates the level of protection against Water.
ATS now has the capability to test all possible combinations (water drip, spray, jet, dust, solid probes), including the most severe IP68 (dust tight and protected against high water pressure, steam and water immersion).
