the ip and ik classifications the ingress protection class of enclosures is expressed in the form of ip classification a two digit coding which is shown below we have tested our enclosures according to en 60529 the standard requires the second digit to be tested separately from class 6 upwards for each level of class thus the double marking ip 66 ip 67 indicates that the actual tests have been made for both levels the new european standard for empty enclosures en 62208 includes the ik impact test this test is described in en 50102 and as fibox enclosures are tested to en 62208 the data for impact resistance is available first digit protection against solid objects ip test second digit protection against liquids ip test ik code protection against mechanical impacts ik test 0 no protection 0 sprays to 60° no protection 00 no protection protected against solid objects over 50 mm hands 1 protected against vertically falling drops of water 01-05 500 g 20 cm impact 1 joule 1 2 2

how to select the right enclosure material size is normally the first and the most dominant criterion when looking for the right enclosure for a specific application enclosure performance i.e material performance is usually the second property considered.the following list of benefits and drawbacks indicates the basic differences between the various fibox enclosure materials polycarbonate pc standard polycarbonate pc benefits · very high impact resistance · available in transparent form · easy machining with normal tools · high ip rating · excellent surface finish · wide operating temperature range · self-extinguishing flammability · good resistance to chemical attack · light weight · good uv resistance · excellent insulating properties · cost-effective material for harsh environments drawbacks · no emc shielding acrylnitrile-butadiene-styrene abs benefits · easy machining with normal tools · easy coloring through pigmentation · low weight · good resistance to

fibox enclosure gaskets offer the best protection the gasket seals the enclosure cover to the body playing a critical role in establishing the enclosure s performance rating the reliability of the nema/ip rating depends upon the properties of the gasket material key performance factors of a gasket are its compression set and chemical resistance compression set is the amount of residual displacement after the compressing load has been removed chemical resistance varies with material and there is no single compound that is resistant to all chemicals pur polyurethane is the gasket of choice in general-purpose applications and are often called molded in place because they are produced by a continuous foam injection process without joints fibox enclosures feature a gasket groove that shapes the pur gasket and assures a reliable ingress rating pur gaskets have a very low permanent compression set and their mechanical properties remain stable in a -50° to +130° c temperature range pur
