Тестирование и лаборатория

Trust is good, control is better - best in our own laboratory

Absolute reliability and permanent protection of installed components against harmful environmental influences are the focus of our daily work. In order to ensure that our enclosures deliver what we promise, we test them for their upcoming tasks. In addition, we also test individualised enclosure solutions including built-in electronics for our customers. We carry out the following tests in our in-house laboratory:

IP protection class tests: Dust protection (DIN EN 60529)

For the dust protection test in accordance with protection classes IP5X and IP6X enclosures are tested in a dust chamber for a defined period of time. A vacuum is created inside the enclosure and talcum powder is constantly stirred up inside the test chamber. The enclosure is opened after the test cycle and no talcum powder must have penetrated, despite the negative pressure generated.


Protection class IP5X:

  • Vacuum: with or without 20 mbar
  • Test duration: 8 hours


Protection class IP6X:

  • Vacuum: with 20 mbar
  • Test duration: 8 hours

 

IP protection class tests: Water protection / (hot) jet water / diving / (DIN EN 60529)

For the water protection test according to IP X5, X6, X7, X8 and X9K the enclosure is tested on our test systems according to the defined parameters. We can install different nozzles to control water flow and water pressure. The water temperature is also regulated. For our customers, we test fully installed products to avoid failures due to water ingress.


Protection class IPX5:

  • Protection against jet water
  • Test with jet nozzle Ø = 6.3 mm
  • Water flow rate: 12 l/min
  • Water pressure: 30 kPa
  • Water temperature: Difference not more than 5°C to the enclosure
  • Distance between enclosure surface and water nozzle: 2.5 - 3.0 m
  • Test duration: 3 min.


Protection class IPX6:

  • Protection against jet water
  • Test with jet nozzle Ø = 12.5 mm
  • Water flow rate: 95 - 105 l/min
  • Water pressure: 100 kPa
  • Water temperature: Difference not more than 5°C to the enclosure
  • Distance between enclosure surface and water nozzle: 2.5 - 3.0 m
  • Test duration: 3 min.


Protection class IPX7:

  • Protection against temporary immersion in water
  • Test by complete immersion
  • Deepest point of the enclosure 1 m below the water surface
  • Water temperature: Difference not more than 5°C to the enclosure
  • Test duration: 30 min.


Protection class IPX8:

  • Immersion protection for a defined time and depth
  • Test by complete immersion
  • Deepest point of the enclosure *defined depth under the water surface
  • Water temperature: Difference not more than 5°C to the enclosure
  • Test duration: *defined time


Protection class IPX9K:

  • Protection against hot high pressure jet water
  • Testing with high pressure nozzle at an angle of 0°, 30°, 60°, 90°
  • Distance between enclosure surface and water nozzle: 100 - 150 mm
  • Enclosure mounted on a rotating table with 5 rpm
  • Water flow rate: 14 - 16 l/min
  • Water pressure: 8,000 - 10,000 kPa
  • Water temperature: 75 - 85 °C
  • Test duration: 30 sec./side

 

Salt spray test (DIN EN 9227:2012-09)

In our salt spray chamber we use salt spray to create a corrosive atmosphere. Under these conditions, the corrosion process accelerates compared to the application in the normal installation environment. This enables us to detect weak points in the enclosures and accessory components before series production and to take appropriate countermeasures.
 

  • Pre-treatment: Cross cut according to DIN EN ISO 2409
  • Dilution: Sodium Chloride: 50 ± 5 g/l
  • PH value: 6.5 - 7.2
  • Water temperature: 35 ± 2 °C
  • Test duration: 1,000 h
