Sand/ Dust/ Rain/ Water Immersion Test
 

For consumer products, IEC/EN 60529 (Degrees of protection provided by enclosure), which is often used, provides detailed description of the degrees of protection and test procedures and method. Therefore, more and more countries are using this standard. These standards mainly aim to protect products from impression of foreign substance that may cause function failure. Portable, outdoor and automotive electronic products are all required for sand/dust and water tests. International standards, such as IEC, MIL, ETSI and SAE, all have corresponding test specifications.

IEC/EN60529 Protection against dust ingression has 7 classes (0-6); protection against water ingression has 9 classes (0-8); they are normally indicated as IPXX and are widely employed globally, where IP stands for International Protection [or rather Ingression Protection, to be more accurate], the first X stands for particle protection and the second X stands for water protection. Therefore, a product indicated IP54 will mean a particle protection of Class 5 (dust) and a water protection of Class 4.

Protection against dust ingression (e.g. IP5X- Class 5 dust protection)
   Level 0: no particle protection at all.
   Level 1: protection against ingression of particle of diameter > 50mm (the spherical tester of 50mm
diameter shall not fall into enclosure entirely).
   Level 2: protection against ingression of particle of diameter >12mm (the spherical tester of 12.5mm
diameter shall not fall into enclosure entirely).
   Level 3: protection against ingression of particle of diameter > 2.5mm (the spherical tester of 2.5mm
diameter shall not fall into enclosure entirely).
   Level 4: protection against ingression of particle of diameter > 1mm (the spherical tester of 1mm
diameter shall not fall into enclosure entirely).
   Level 5: partially dust proof (partially dust proof, but dust ingression shall not affect normal
operation of the product or degrade product safety).
   Level 6: totally dust tight (no dust ingression into enclosure).

Protection against Water ingression (e.g. IPX4- class 4 splash proof)
   Level 0: no water protection at all.
   Level 1: protection against vertical dripping water (no damage caused due to vertical dripping water into enclosure).
   Level 2: protection against dripping water in an angle of 15 degrees in respect to the product (no
damage caused due to water dripping into enclosure in an angle of 15 degrees in respect to the product).
   Level 3: protection against spraying water in an angle of 60 degrees (no effect to normal operation or
safety of product due to water spray).
   Level 4: protection against spraying water in an angle of 180 degrees (no effect to normal operation or safety of product due to water splash).
   Level 5: protection against water jet (no effect to normal operation or safety of product due to water jet in any direction aiming at the enclosure).
   Level 6: protection against severe flooding (no effect to normal operation or safety of product
due to water flooding in any direction to the enclosure).
   Level 7: protection against water immersion (no effect to normal operation or safety of product due to immersion in water for a specified period of time).
   Level 8: protection against continued immersion in water (no effect to normal operation or safety of
product due to immersion in water in accordance with period of time (no less than that in level 7) specified by the manufacturer).

Standards: IEC 60529, SAE J575.
