IP67 Testing for the Demands of Consumer Product ManufacturingIP67 is an electronics and sealed device testing process used to determine whether components meet the requirements needed to receive an IP (ingress protection) rating. Devices with this internationally recognized rating resist exposure to dust and withstand up to 30 minutes of submersion in water up to 40 inches (1 meter) in depth. Products assigned an IP67 rating are typically used in outdoor applications or other environments requiring resistance to dust and moisture.
Watch this video (image, below) to learn more about how the world’s largest consumer products manufacturers are using CTS solutions like the Sentinel MH to ensure their devices are leak-proof and dust-tight to IP67 ingress protection standards.
Manufacturers use various types of electronics testing instruments for waterproof testing and to ensure compliance with IP67 standards. These instruments use different testing methods such as pressure decay, vacuum leak, tracer gas leak, and others to test seal integrity in a controlled setting.
Your business’ product quality, warranty cost, and overall reputation all depend on your ability to ensure your sealed components are sealed from contamination or leakage. CTS offers a highly accurate solution for leak testing your sealed components to IP67 standards, allowing you to focus your valuable attention elsewhere.
The following CTS instruments support IP67 leak testing for sealed devices:
Benefits of Sealed Device Leak Testing and Waterproof TestingIPXX ingress testing benefits manufacturers across a broad range of industries, from consumer goods to the military. Our leak testing systems and instruments provide an ideal solution for ingress protection testing and help ensure sealed parts conform to IP67 or other IPXX ingress contamination
- Dry and non-destructive leak test
- Provides sensitivity to detect very small leaks
- Provides protection from over-pressurization
- Can be performed with air pressure or vacuum
IP67 Electronics Testing Ensures the Integrity of Sealed ComponentsExposure to dust and moisture cause several issues, including corrosion, electrical shorts and shock, internal condensation, performance issues, and operational failure. Waterproofing electronics to IP67 specifications can prevent these issues and improve the performance of a wide variety of products, including:
- Automotive Components
- Adapters, Cables, and Connectors
- Diving and Underwater Gear
