Making waterproof testing easier with new drip testing equipment

20-11-2023 | AmadeTech | Test & Measurement

AmadeTech has released new open-type IPX1/2 drip testing equipment that promises to make waterproof testing more straightforward and convenient for testers.

IPX1/2 waterproof testing equipment tests the mild water resistance of electronic devices, medical products, and other products. It is a critical step in manufacturing products that are exposed to water or moisture in their daily use. The IPX1/2 rating signifies that the device can withstand water dripping vertically onto it at a rate of 1-3mm per minute for ten minutes.

The company's new open-type IPX1/2 drip testing equipment comes in wall-mounted and frame-type styles. Unlike conventional box-type drip test devices, the test area of open-type drip testing equipment is not limited by the surrounding box walls and can accept larger and irregularly shaped samples. It is also more convenient for testers to mount and remove samples.

One unique feature of this new testing equipment is that it is equipped with a photoelectric sensing device, and the drip box can automatically lift and lower under control so that the drip holes and the top of the sample reach exactly 200mm. This distance is needed by relevant standards such as IEC60529 and ISO 20653. This greatly saves manual operations. More importantly, its price will be lower, and its cost performance will be higher.

However, open-type equipment also has some drawbacks compared to box-type equipment. Firstly, it needs waterproofing of the test site. Ordinary ones without waterproof function cannot accept these devices. Secondly, since the water flows directly to the ground throughout the test, the test water cannot be recycled, and the water-saving performance could be better than that of box-type equipment.

"We are very excited to introduce our new open-type IPX1/2 drip testing equipment," said a spokesperson for AmadeTech. "We believe that this equipment will make waterproof testing easier and more convenient for testers and help manufacturers worldwide ensure that their products meet the high standards of water resistance."
