Box-Type Drip Chamber Standard
In accordance with IEC 60529: 2001 “Degrees of protection provided by enclosures (IP Code)”
The IPX1 IPX2 Waterproof test chamber is a specialized testing equipment designed to evaluate the degree of protection provided by electronic products against water ingress. This test chamber can simulate rain and dripping water conditions to assess the level of waterproofing performance of different products in accordance with international standards such as IEC 60529.
The IPX1 IPX2 Waterproof test chamber features a durable stainless steel construction and a transparent viewing window that allows operators to monitor the testing process. The chamber is equipped with a water supply system and a spray nozzle that can produce water droplets of various sizes and angles, which can be adjusted to simulate different environmental conditions.
During the IPX1 IPX2 Waterproof test, the product under test is placed in the test chamber and subjected to controlled water spray for a specified time. The amount of water that enters the product is analyzed to determine the level of protection provided by the product.
IPX1 IPX2 waterproof chamber is an essential tool for manufacturers of electronic products and components who need to ensure their products can withstand water exposure and meet the necessary safety and quality standards.
1.What is IPX1 testing?
IPX1 testing is a part of the Ingress Protection (IP) Code, which classifies and rates the degree of protection provided by mechanical casings and electrical enclosures against intrusion, dust, accidental contact, and water. The “X” in IPX1 stands for the level of protection against solid objects, and in this case, it indicates that there is no specific rating for protection against solid particles. The “1” in IPX1 refers to the level of protection against water.
Specifically, IPX1 testing evaluates the degree of protection against vertically falling water droplets when the enclosure is in its normal position. During the test, the equipment or enclosure is placed on a turntable, and it rotates at a rate of 1 r/min. Water is sprayed at it from above at a rate of 10 L/min with a test duration of 10 minutes. The purpose of this test is to determine if product can withstand vertically falling water droplets without allowing water to enter and affect its performance.
The IPX1 rating indicates that the equipment or enclosure provides protection against vertically falling water droplets but does not guarantee protection against other forms of water ingress such as spraying or splashing from different angles.
2. What is IPX2 testing?
IPX2 testing evaluates the degree of protection against dripping water when the enclosure is tilted at an angle of 15 degrees from its normal position. During the test, water is dripped onto the equipment or enclosure for a duration of 10 minutes. The purpose of this test is to determine if the equipment can withstand dripping water without allowing it to enter and affect its performance.
3. Are the IPX1 IPX2 waterproof chamber is for both IPX1 and IPX2 testing?
Yes. Our product is for both IPX1 AND IPX2 testing. You could adjust the flow rate and tilt angle based on your aims.
