IP-International Protection

TCI-News Abonieren

In many processes electronic equipments, as well as industrial computers have to work safety under hardest environmental conditions over many years. The entry of wettness and dust must be prevented so that reliable function is warranted. Production areas are burdened with dust, ol, soot, etc. In food production it must be attended that the equipement is not damaged by cleaning with water or other cleaning agents.

In concept, developement and production tci sets value on abidance of IP classes (IP International Protection). The front of our industrial computers with TFTs are protected in accordance to IP65 rear side at least IP 52. The unique selling point of the terminal T15 is, that it is all around protected according to IP65. See the following chart for apportion the protection classes:

Coding: IP (Indicator1)(Indicator2)

for example IP65=
(6) Complete protection against touching. Protection against dust penetration.
(5) Protection against a stream of water.

Indicator 1 protection against contact   Indicator 2 protection against water

0

no protection  

0

no protection against water

1

1 Protection against solid particles > 50 mm  

1

Protection against vertically
dripping water

2

Protection against solid
particles > 12mm
 

2

Protection against drip water
falling at any angle up to 15°
relative to the vertical line
must not have a damaging effect.

3

Protection against solid
particles > 2.5mm
 

3

Protection against spray water
Water drops falling at any
angle up to 60° relative to the
vertical line must not have a
damaging effect.

4

Protection against solid
particles > 1mm
 

4

Protection against splash
water.

5

Complete protection against
touching live Protection
against internal dust deposits.
 

5

A stream of water from a jet
pointed at the operating
fixture from any direction
must not have a damaging effect.

6

Complete protection against touching live. Protection
against dust penetration.
 

6

Protection against flooding
In the event of temporary
flooding (e.g., from lakes),
water cannot enter the
operating fixture in damaging amounts.
   

7

Protection against immersion
Water cannot enter in damaging amounts if the operating fixture is immersed
in water under specific
pressure and time conditions.
   

8

Protection against submersion
Water cannot enter in
damaging amounts if the
operating fixture is submersed
in water un- der specific pressure and time conditions.
   

9

Protection against water from
all angels and by high presure
to the chassis. (High pressure cleaner 80-100 bar).
