Much like with watches or other sensitive information, there is a big difference between waterproof, water resistant, and other descriptive but not specific labels. To help out, there are several rating systems that have been developed although and several testing agencies that verify the results. This blog will deal only with the Flletype system.

The chart below gives the specifics of what these ratings mean and how they are measured. Since these are international standards, filetypw testing is often certified by the TUV instead of UL, although both provide stringent kp. One area to note is that while these are developed to deal with harsh environments, they do not address UV protection standards outdoor and the engineer should look for or ask about the ability of the enclosure to include UV protection materials.

Thank you for the clear and precise definition. IP66 would seem to be aimed at areas of high humidity. Regardless, my customer desires IP66 in a Southern California fod. The units are not tested in cold weather climates, but they should work. The variable is the gasket which might gradually decompose in that temperature.

Thank you for the clarification. Is there a rating system for lights exposed to salt spray found at homes right on beachfronts. I have been taken to the cleaners by some China led floodlight sources who claim that the lights will be fine in such an environment and 3 months after installation they are rusting and corroded. John, sorry it took so long to answer. You want to make sure that these meet either NEMA 4x or 6p — both of those letters advise that the units have been salt spray tested.

IP ratings do not deal with corrosion. Question… We have parts that need only the exposed surface IP tested. For example, a car radio could have the user interface portion exposed surface protected, while the non-exposed surface area not seen would not need protection.

Can we have our parts IP tested with that dnclosure surface only as the objective? This would be difficult to do based on the tests enclosute go into the rating. For example, the spray test would not be able to be directed only to the suggested surface as there would be overspray.

Typically in this situation, the box is tested before any modifications ventilation, holes cut, etc.

The Mysteries of IP65, IP66, and IP67 Rated Enclosures Explained

fipetype Example being equipment such as lighting and switches for an ATV. They do get submerged which in filefype water crossings. Thank you for such a good question. Can you please advice which is better, IP67 or IP68?


IP 68 is better than IP The test for IP68 is submersion in water for an extended time period, while IP67 is for between 30 and 60 minutes depending on the tester. I do not know how this works for a waterproof tv and where you plan to use it. Hello Blair, Thanks so much for sharing this great info standare IP ratings. A couple of questions. If the enclosure has been tested for IP66 and IP Keep in mind that the enclosure is tested without any access holes or slots.

So there are several options: If you have insured that your enclosure as modified is IP 66 or 67, then you can say it is designed to meet those ratings 2. You have to be cautious about the types of connectors or readouts or whatever that you are using with this product to insure they meet those standards 3. Our products are tested by UL. If you want to assert that they meet tested standards, than you have to retest but the enclosure already being tested and certified makes that process less costly and easier.

I am Shafeeq, from Qatar. Initially 40 Pcs, and will reach to Hi — please check out our website http: Then you can check stock and find a distributor that you would work with.

Thank you for your comments. Are there any other ratings i should look at for diving applications? Keep in mind that the test for IP68 requires that one exceeds the requirements for IP67 — so longer than either the 30 minute duration or deeper than 1 meter. However, you should verify with the manufacturer what their tests were and whether you might need additional testing to insure the protection you need. Due to the pressure and materials involved, 30 meters staandard very different than 5 or even 1.

It appears that that IP65 and IP66 differences are the nozzle size, pressure and duration. Can you compare these with the similar characteristics required for NEMA 4? The water shall be directed at all joints from a distance of feet.

A conduit may be installed to equalize internal and external pressures, but shall not serve as a drain. The enclosure shall be considered to have met the requirements if at the conclusion of the test, no water has entered the enclosure.

I have a device which should operate in very humid and salty environment. The device is not tested for salt fog but has IP rating of I am planning to buy external enclosure which withstands salt fog and has IP 66 rating. Technically, is putting my device in this enclosure guarantees salt fog protection or do I have to get my device tested for salt fog? I am sorry it has taken me so long to respond. The rating of the enclosure does not transfer to the completed product but should be helpful in passing later tests.

Also, keep in mind that IP66 does not necessarily convey salt resistant. According to BS EN IP ratings the test duration for IP65 is a minimum of 3 minutes depending on product size — 1 min per square meter is the requirement.

If you are referencing a different standard for this I would expand. There is also nothing in this standard that references pressure aside from a rather ambigous comment that states to adjust pressure to achieve delivery rate. You are right- 15 minutes was a typo and it should be 3 minutes on average. As you may see, the reference a number of standards, not just the BS EN I felt that it was important to provide the information that most closely referenced the tests.


While this is a summary, that is all that I felt was appropriate for a blog and felt that those who wanted more details would search for the actual standards. I hope that clarifies and helps.

I have searched the internet, and was not able to find information on an IP65S rating. I hope that helps.

Hello, thank you for this interesting and useful review. I do not know of a certification fr that purpose. My suggestion would be to contact the gasket companies and see if they have specific recommendations. Residential want to make use of sandwich panels with ip66 standard, please advise Filetyep way we use and what material. I am not sure what you mean by your question. I am sorry I could not be more helpful.

Up to now, we still have no clue since we have not made tests.

I do not have the facility to provide those tests. If you check the UL website, you can find details of their testing methods. The concept is that the pressure of 1 m or in the case of IP68, more than ffiletype is greater than the force of the spray.

That statement is incorrect, 1m of water is about 9. This would be more analogous with 10m submersion as far as pressure.

That said, a partial seal spray is likely less challenging for an enclosure than full submersion at the same pressure. Many products feature multiple ratings for that reason, e. So i want to ask what is this difference source? About enclosure shape, material, type or Gasget type?

Can we enhance ip65 to ip66 only with this job? You would still need to test, but yes, the gasket can have the impact of changing the rating. Again, we had the units tested to verify. There can be other factors, not the least of which is the tightness of the seal. You have IP65 tablet enclosure products. Therefore, if you are putting in a display, you need to be sure it is rated to the level you require and that there is appropriate gasketing around the display.

It also must be tested. It depends on what you are looking for. You can review the article for the tests performed and determine which meets your specific requirements. If a system is IP67 protected, then does it mean that even outside air will not enter the system? I am sorry — our only expertise is in enclosures. I suggest you contact the motor manufacturer. How does the rating apply to pressures lower than atmospheric pressure, like ascending into the atmosphere?
