Introduction of IK Level Test - Way Jay - ContactCenterWorld.com Blog
Regarding the degree of protection code in the IEC62262, the IK code indicates the degree
of protection against the external mechanical impact of the enclosure. The characteristic
combinations are: 01 to 10, IKO1, IK02, IK03, IK04, IK05, IK06, IK07, IK08, IK09 and IK10.
These 10 grades are divided into two groups according to the different levels of test: the
first group is from the IK01, IK02 to IK06 spring impact hammer test, the test energy in
this group is small (from 0.14J to 1J); the other group is from the IK07, IK08 to IK10
large pendulum test, the test energy of this group is from 2J to 20J. In the lighting
industry, like car lights headlamps, street lamps, explosion-proof lights and some special
lamp species need to do IK05 to IK10 IK protection level test for lamp shell , especially
IK07, IK08, IK09 and IK10 test level .
IEC66262 standard provides how to install the measured objects when we need to do IK
protection grade test, the ventilation requirements, the number and distribution of impact
hammer. IEC60598 (GB7000) and IEC60068-2-75 (GB2423.55) standard include the application of
IK test for lighting products. These related standards are mainly to regulate the relevant
test steps and the methods in the IK protection level test for lighting products, and
ultimately to detect the product enclosure protection level to meet industrial and national
requirements or not, the details can be referred to the relevant standards.
