IPX9/IPX9K Testing

IPX9/IPX9K Testing in Canada

IPX9 and IPX9K High Pressure High Temperature Water Jet Spray Testing Services in Canada

Along with other ingress protection testing for dust and water, International Testing Laboratory Inc. offers testing of enclosures for various products by exposing them to high pressure and temperature water jets for IPX9 and IPX9K.

Both IPX9 and IPX9K rating gives the product an ability to withstand water jets spray with high temperature and pressure but the test procedure and requirements are different.

IEC 60529 defines the test procedure for IPX9 rating where as ISO 20653 defines test procedure for IPX9K rating.

IPX9 Test as per IEC 60529

IPX9 test is made by spraying the enclosure with a stream of water using test nozzle described in IEC 60529. For this test, distribution force of water being sprayed is verified using a specific measuring apparatus for the impact force of the water jets.
