Mechanical Strength Testing

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.

IK Impact and IP Testing for LED Lights

If you are looking for IK Testing Laboratory for LED Lighting In your Area, ITCIndia Electrical Safety testing Laboratory Approved from NABL. ITC India one of the best IK Impact Testing Laboratory in India, Mumbai, Chennai, Ahmedabad, New Delhi, Pune, Kolkata, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Surat, Visakhapatnam.

ITCIndia “Institute of Testing and Certification India Pvt. Ltd” are a leading testing lab having a NABL accreditation under ELECTRICAL, ELECTRONICS and PHOTOMETRY testing with certificate no. T-3509, T-3570 and T-1811. ITCIndia Lab is following the procedure as required by International Standard IEC 17025 and is already certified for ISO/IEC 17025.

ITCIndia offers full IK Impact and IP Testing and certification services for LED Lighting luminaires to IEC 60598-2-3 Impact IK ratings are defined as IKXX, where “XX” is a number from 00 to 10 indicating the degrees of protection provided by electrical enclosures including luminaires against external mechanical impacts. The Impact IK rating scale identifies the ability of an enclosure to resist impact energy levels measured in joules. IEC 62262 specifies how the enclosure must be mounted for IK Impact and IP Testing, the atmospheric conditions required, the quantity and distribution of the test impacts and the impact hammer to be used for each level of Impact IK rating.

Standards for IK Impact and IP Testing for LED Lighting

IEC 62262 specifies the way enclosures should be tested for IK ratings which are defined as the level of protection the enclosures provided against external mechanical impacts. IEC 60598-1 (IEC 60529) specifies the test method used to classify and rate the degree of protection an enclosure provides against intrusion of various sized solid objects from fingers and hands to fine dust and the protection against water intrusion from falling drops to a high pressure water jet.IEC 60598-2-3 is the International Standard for Luminaires for Road and Street Lighting

Degrees of protection against external mechanical impacts
IK00 IK02 IK03 IK05 IK06 IK07 IK08 IK09 IK10
Non-protected 0.2J 0.35J 0.5J 0.7J 1J 2J |5J 10J 20J

IP ratings are defined as IPXX where the first X indicates the degree of protection against solid objects and the second X indicates the degrees of protection against water. A luminaire or lighting component with a rating of IP66 is dust-tight and protected against powerful water jets as described in IEC 60598-1 (IEC 60529).

Degrees of protection against solid objects
IP0X Non-protected
IP1X 50mm diameter and greater
IP2X 12.55mm diameter and greater
IP3X 2.5mm diameter and greater
IP4X 1.0mm diameter and greater
IP5X Dust-protected
IP6X Dust-tight

Degrees of protection against water
IPX0 Non-protected
IPX1 Vertically falling water drops
IPX2 Vertically falling water drops with enclosure tilted
IPX3 Spraying water
IPX4 Splashing water
IPX5 Water jets
IPX6 Powerful water jets
IPX7 Temporary immersion
IPX8 Continuous immersion

IK Impact and IP Testing for LED Lighting Products Ratings that demonstrate the degree of Impact Protection IK Impact and Ingress Protection are critical for LED Lights and other LED lighting products. IP ratings are required per IEC/EN 60598-2-3 for all roadway and street applications. Impact IK ratings are required in specific applications when high impact glass provides protection for the enclosed lamp
