IP Testing (KTAC)

IP codes are widely used to indicate the degree of water-proof and dustproof properties of electric equipment. IP is an abbreviation for International Protection. Electrical and mechanical products for outdoors use as well as portable equipment for industrial, office, and home use benefits greatly from evaluating its protection against foreign matter and water intrusion. The IP codes defined in IEC 60529 classifies the degree of protection against the ingress of foreign material (including steel balls, copper wire, dirt and dust, water) into the enclosure of electrical and mechanical products. The first digit (0 to 6) indicates the level of protection that the enclosure provides against the ingress of solid objects such as tools, wires, hands, fingers or dust and the second digit (0 to 8) indicates the level of protection of the equipment inside the enclosure against the ingress of water. For example, IP54 means that the level of protection against the ingress of solid objects is 5 and the level of protection against the ingress of liquid is 4.
