Mechanical Strength Testing

Do not just say your product is robust. Prove it!!! By Mechanical Strength Testing…….

Mechanical strength test gives the information about the strength, ductility, hardness and fracture toughness of the material. They are performed under many conditions such as impact, fatigue, load, compression, stress, elongation, tension and compression.

Let us have a look at the mechanical testing on Empty enclosures. IEC 62262 is a system which describes the degree of protection provided by enclosure for electrical equipment against external mechanical impacts when the rated voltage is not greater than 72.5 V.

The objective of this standard is to give  definition of degree of protection, designation for the degree of protection , requirement for each designation and the tests to be performed to verify that the enclosure meet the requirement of the standard.

What are IK codes?

It is a coding system to indicate the degree of protection provided by the enclosure against harmful external Mechanical hazards.

IK code Impact Energy    

( Joules or J)

K00 No protection
IK 01-05 Impact <1 J
IK 06 Impact =1 joule
IK 07 Impact= 2 J
IK 08 Impact= 5 J
IK 09 Impact=10 J
IK 10 Impact=20 J

The apparatus required for the Impact with required energy are of three types:

  1. The Spring Hammer: The striking element consists of hammer shaft, hammer head and the cocking knob. The mass of the assembly is 250 Gms (for impact <1 J), 500gms (impact<2J). The pressure of the striking element shall not exceed 10 N.

  1. The Pendulum Hammer: This test apparatus is for the specimen requiring Impact of 2 J or above.

  1. The vertical Hammer: the hammer consists of a striking element which falls freely from rest through a vertical height.

    That is great that a mechanical strength test gives the information about the strength, ductility, hardness, and fracture toughness of a material. I have always wondered what the point of texting was. That is really cool that strength testing isn’t just about the strength, but so much more.
