What does IP Protection (waterproof and dustproof) mean ?- Fulltech Electric


IP Protection (waterproof and dustproof) - Fulltech Electric

The IP Code, Ingress Protection Rating, sometimes also interpreted as International Protection Rating, classifies and rates the degree of protection provided against the intrusion of solid objects (including bodyparts such as hands and fingers), dust, accidental contact, and water in mechanical casings and with electrical enclosures. It is published by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC).
The standard aims to provide users more detailed information than vague marketing terms such as waterproof. However, no edition of the standard is openly published for unlicensed readers.
The digits (characteristic numerals) indicate conformity with the conditions summarized in the tables below. Where there is no protection rating with regard to one of the criteria, the digit is replaced with the letter X.
For example, an electrical socket rated IP22 is protected against insertion of fingers and will not be damaged or become unsafe during a specified test in which it is exposed to vertically or nearly vertically dripping water. IP22 or 2X are typical minimum requirements for the design of electrical accessories for indoor use.
Solid Particle Protection
The first digit indicates the level of protection that the enclosure provides against access to hazardous parts (e.g., electrical conductors, moving parts) and the ingress of solid foreign objects.
IP code for AC fan
Liquid Ingress Protection
The second digit indicates the level of protection that the enclosure provides against harmful ingress of water.
IP code for cooling fan
AC fan with waterproof
More and more users choose to install the machines or equipment in the outdoor, for example, electric cabinet for solar panel, heat exchangers, electric control cabinet, LED billboard outdoor and so on. Those equipment uses the AC fan inside to intake and exhaust the air to cool down the equipment. However, by installing the equipment outdoor, it increases the risk the malfunction of the machines as well, so it is important to choose the right AC cooling fan to guarantee the life cycle and durability of the industrial equipment. And AC fan with waterproof made by Fulltech can help to eliminate the risk of the malfunction which may be caused by the rain or humidity inside the machine.
Fulltech AC axial fan is waterproof by sealing the motor inside, to avoid the possibility of the malfunction of the AC fan. Also, Fulltech AC fan passed the constant temperature and humidity test, -20℃~70℃ for 15 cycles and for 300 hours in total. It proves that Fulltech AC axial waterproof fan is reliable in the various outdoor environment.
