Hitting The Beach? Check Your ABS Boxes Are IP Rated

There is a conversation that is played out thousands of times in camera shops around the world, usually in the summer months.

It starts with a customer asking the assistant why the expensive camera they bought a few months ago now no longer works.

To which the assistant simply replies: “Have you been using it on the beach?”

Cameras don’t like sand. You don’t even have to drop them – they can react badly to very fine windblown sand and moisture.

Not just cameras either. Many electronic devices can be fragile but their portability means users are now more likely to use ABS boxes packed with expensive circuitry in more challenging environments.

So designers need to worry much more about whether their products will need to be housed in dustproof and waterproof enclosures.

They must also consider precisely how tough each waterproof enclosure will need to be:
•    IP54 – splash-proof for indoor environments
•    IP65 or IP66 – more robust, able to withstand harsh industrial or outdoor conditions.

Consistency of quality is absolutely vital. All the enclosures in each IP rated batch must reach the standard – which is why it pays to consult specialists such as OKW.

OKW tests its ABS and polycarbonate enclosures in accordance with the international standards VDE 0470 PART 1/EN 60529/IEC 529.

We tested the capabilities of our fully sealed computers by performing a total wash down of this all-in-one, touch screen, NEMA 4X (IP66) computer with a 2400 psi pressure washer. Installed outdoors with a 100mm VESA mounting arm, this demonstration simulates the rigors that would be present in an actual wash down environment. Completely unaffected, this industrial computer proves it can perform continuously even in the toughest environments.

Que es la Proteccion IP para tiras LED

El sistema de clasificación IP, es el estándar internacional usado para medir el grado de protección de los productos de iluminación led, puede ser utilizado para cualquier producto, como focos led o downlight led, pero donde más importancia puede tener es quizás a la hora de elegir unas tiras led para iluminar en exteriores o zonas húmedas.

La protección que podemos encontrar en el mercado se representa con las siglas IPXX, donde las X son los dígitos que indican el nivel de protección, el primero contra sólidos y el segundo contra líquidos.

Así cuantos más altos son los números mayor protección tendrán, así es fácil encontrar tira de leds en el mercado con protección IP65, IP66, IP67 o incluso IP68 que sería según el estándar la máxima protección. La siguiente tabla detalla las protecciones frente a sólidos y líquidos:

ROLEC's Ultimate All-Round Aluminium Enclosures

ROLEC’s aluDISC is the world’s first standard range of round diecast aluminium enclosures for industrial electronics and electrical equipment.

The range is designed to integrate with industrial applications where everything is circular: pipes, tanks, lamps, displays.

Typical applications include process control, monitoring and detection and industrial measuring such as flow metering.

ROLEC aluDISC housings are specified as IP66 but can be supplied with high performance gaskets to make them IP69K- or IP67-rated enclosures.

The enclosures are powder painted light grey RAL 7035. They have black POM plastic lid cover trims that clip in to hide all the assembly and mounting screws.

ROLEC’s aluDISC electrical housings can be mounted to a wall, machine or other equipment while still assembled – so there is no need to remove the lid, avoiding possible damage to the components or sealing gasket.

A round recessed area in the lid is designed for mounting membrane keypads, display modules, controls or product labels.

A separate model is also available pre-fitted with a transparent hinged cover for extra protection of the controls. It can be opened and closed with a quarter turn fastener.

ROLEC designers used the wristwatch as their inspiration when designing aluDISC. They included two flat areas for mounting cable glands, connectors and controls.

Threaded screw bosses are provided inside for fitting PCBs, mounting plates, earth leads and other components.

Prices for aluDISC start at around £38. ROLEC aluminium enclosures are marketed in the UK by OKW Enclosures Ltd of Fareham, Hampshire.
