  • DIN EN 62262
  • and various product standards

Our range of services

Test of the degree of protection (IP) with respect to

  • the protection of persons, e.g. against contact with hazardous parts with the finger, the back of the hand or through tools and wires
  • the protection of operating resources against foreign bodies, e.g. against the penetration of foreign bodies, going as far as dust-tightness
  • the protection of operating resources against water, e.g. dripping, sprayed, splashed water, water projected from a nozzle, including immersion and complete, continuous submersion
  • Protection against mechanical impacts

Test of the degree of protection provided by the enclosure against external mechanical impacts (IK)
