What is IP69k?
IP69K is the highest level of protection against the ingress of dust and water, where 6 stands for complete dust protection and 9K indicates protection against high temperature, high-pressure water.
|Eerste cijfer: 6
|Complete protection against dust particles
|Tweede Cijfer: 9
|Protection against steam jet cleaning
|Extra karakter: K
|Protection against high temperature, high-pressure water
WHAT ARE IP RATINGS?
IP classification: "IP" stands for "Ingress Protection." Several classifications can be distinguished. It is important to note that IP69K is not higher in classification than ip67 or IP68. The fact that IP69K has a higher number does not automatically imply that the protection is better than IP68. In reality, IP68 and IP69K are based on different testing methods.
The IP rating indicates whether a device is resistant to the penetration of water, objects, dust, and mechanical stress. This classification is crucial when equipment is cleaned with high-pressure washing and/or at high temperatures.
THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN IP69K AND IP69
Both IP69 and IP69K indicate that a product is resistant to high-temperature, high-pressure jet cleaning. However, the IP69K classification offers a higher level of protection and has a specific test procedure associated with the automotive industry and other applications where equipment is exposed to extremely demanding cleaning processes.
HIGHEST LEVEL OF PROTECTION
IP69K is considered one of the highest protection levels available. It is often applied in environments where hygiene and cleanability are crucial. TRALERT® offers various LED lighting solutions with IP68, IP69, and IP69K ratings. Regarding LED work lights, these are frequently installed in locations where the risk of water ingress is high. TRALERT® provides various LED lights and LED work lights with these classifications.
