IP Testing Services
Power India Services Provides Consultancy services to conducts Ingress Protection (IP) Testing to ensure client products will fare against the environmental elements before reaching the market. We assist to get the hundreds of different test methods for various industries worldwide. IP Testing is one of the many tests we provide that can support companies by validating their product performance claims.
IP testing determines a product’s ability to protect against the infiltration of water, dust, or foreign objects. Manufacturers might pursue this type of testing for several reasons. Safety is the number one priority since putting out the safest product helps both the customers and the company. Regarding the company itself, IP testing can save from major asset losses and litigation.
Particular products require different types of testing. IP testing is divided into two kinds: testing for ingress from liquids and testing for ingress from foreign objects. Liquids can include mist, steam, and sprayed water, while foreign objects can include sand, dust, and oil. With each type of testing, companies can determine the durability and functionality of a particular product before it is placed on the market. Some IP Testing is done with different temperatures and pressure settings. This is essential, as each product may be affected by some elements but not others. Based on a product’s application and condition, it can allow particles and moisture to permeate its outer layer without compromising its function. Take a microphone, for example. While air can flow through it freely, the item would be rendered useless if water were to seep inside.
Though highly recommended, IP testing is voluntary. However, certain specifiers and purchasers often request an IP rating to verify a product’s efficiency. An IP rating provides additional proof of quality within a product. It can also save companies from getting an excess of returned merchandise or becoming liable after an accident due to a manufacturing error. As well as that, it gives companies a competitive edge against their opponents. Our environmental labs have an ISO 17025 accreditation to perform this method according to specific test specs at an exceptional level of proficiency.
Ingress protection testing assesses the degree to which products/enclosures protect the inner working parts against water, dust, and solids. IP testing is critical for a wide range of applications from cell phone cases and aerospace electronics to high-voltage transformers.
The IP ratings, which are outlined by the international ingress protection testing standard IEC 60529, depend of the target use and are identified as ‘IP XY’ where the first digit (‘X’, from 1-6) indicates the level of protection against Solids and Dust while the second digit (‘Y’, from 1-8) indicates the level of protection against Water.

IP 54 Testing
What is IP54 testing?
P54 means that is Protected from limited dust ingress. Protected from water spray from any direction. IP 54 Enclosure Characteristics:
IP 55 Testing
Protection from dirt, dust, oil, and other non-corrosive material. Complete protection from contact with enclosed equipment. Protection from water, up to water projected by a nozzle against enclosure from any direction. Available in aluminium, carbon steel, and stainless steel.
IP 64 Testing
IP64 Protected from total dust ingress. Protected from water spray from any direction. IP65 Protected from total dust ingress. Protected from low pressure water jets from any direction.
IP 65 Testing
Protect your designs from harsh environments with an IP65-rated enclosure from Bud. IP65 is a moderate level of ingress protection, providing strong protection against dust and moderate protection against water. To meet this IEC standard, an enclosure is tested with low-pressure jets of water directed from any angle. A small amount of water ingress is permitted if there are no harmful effects. IP65 rated enclosures are commonly used in factory-washdown applications and outdoor applications.
Whether your concern is weather, factory washdowns, EMI shielding, or airborne contaminants, you’ll find the perfect fit among our huge selection of enclosures.
IP 66 Testing
IP66-rated enclosures are dust-tight and provide a strong level of indoor-outdoor protection. Boxes that qualify for this rating will prevent ingress of water directed at high pressure. Typically, IP66 waterproof enclosures are used in washdown and outdoor applications, such as factories, rooftops, solar installations, and agricultural settings. They give maximum protection against pressure-washing and weather short of water immersion.
IP 67 Testing
IP 67 waterproof testing is a process of testing how well a product can withstand being submerged in water. This is important for products that will be used in or around water, such as phones, cameras, and laptops. The IP67 standard specifies that a product must be able to withstand being submerged in up to 1 meter of water for 30 minutes.
That means that if you drop your phone in the pool, it should still work when you fish it out! To test for IP67 waterproofing, manufacturers put their products through a series of tests. These tests involve submerging the product in water and then checking for leaks, air bubbles, and other signs of damage. If you’re interested in learning more about IP67 waterproof testing, read on for an overview of the process and what it means for your devices.
How is it done?
When it comes to IP waterproof testing, there are a few different ways that it can be done. The most common method is by using a watertight and airtight enclosure that the item to be tested is placed inside of.
This enclosure is then filled with water and pressurized in order to simulate the conditions that the item would be under while in use. Another common method is known as the drip test, which simulates rainfall by dripping water onto the item at a specific rate for a set amount of time.
What are the benefits?
Waterproofing your IP device is vital to its longevity and performance. Here are some benefits of waterproofing your device:
At its most basic, IP68 is a protection rating against dust and water. The IP stands for Ingress Protection, whilst the first number refers to protection against solids, and the second number refers to protection against water. There are several different ratings, but IP68 is the most common in today’s market.
