The Instructions of Smart Bike Lock Waterproof Rating

2017-11-17 16:26:51
Now the smart bicycle lock has begun to flaunt the level of IP65 or IP67 waterproof and dustproof function.But do we all know what these meanings represent?

IP (Ingress Protection) is an international standard for measuring the dust and water resistance of equipment.Waterproof grade reflects the ability of the instrument moisture and dust, especially for outdoor activities, inevitably in the harsh environment of high humidity or dusty, the sealing and waterproofing ability of the instrument is essential to ensure the safe operation and life of the instrument.

IPxx level
Two digits in the IP code, the first digit represents the level that prevents intrusion of foreign objects (including dust) into the parking lock.The second number indicates the level of waterproofing of the device. To achieve an IP rating, your parking lock must be certified and independently tested before it can be marked on the instructions.
In simple terms, the wording is "IP + (number A) + (number B)", the number A represents the dustproof level, and the number B represents the waterproof rating.

Dust level list

IP _X: anti-foreign body and dust level, IP0X-without any special protection.

IP1X - Prevents accidental contact with parts inside the appliance, such as the palm of your hand, to prevent foreign objects of larger size (> 5mm in diameter) from entering.

IP2X - Prevents human fingers from touching parts inside the appliance to prevent intrusion of foreign objects of medium size (greater than 12.5mm in diameter).

IP3X - Prevent tools, wires and similar small foreign objects of diameter or thickness from penetrating into contact with parts inside the appliance.

IP4X - Prevent tools with diameter or thickness greater than 1cm, wires and similar small foreign objects intruding into parts inside the appliance

IP5X-Partially prevent dust intrusion (will not produce harmful sediment), although not completely prevent the intrusion of dust, but the amount of dust intrusion will not affect the normal operation of electrical appliances.

IP6X - completely sealed to prevent invasion of foreign objects and dust.
