Organization: CEI
Publication Date: 1 October 2017
Status: active
Page Count: 54
ICS Code (Environmental testing): 19.040
scope:

This part of IEC 60068 provides methods of test applicable to products which, during transportation, storage or in service, can be subjected to falling water drops, impacting water, immersion or high pressure water impact. The primary purpose of water tests is to verify the ability of enclosures, covers and seals to maintain components and equipment in good working order after and, when necessary, under a standardized drop field or immersion in water.

These tests are not corrosion tests and cannot be considered and used as such.

Established water tests in other standards are not intended to simulate natural rainfall and their quoted intensities are too high to be adopted for that purpose. Therefore, in addition to the high-intensity severities, test R includes an artificial rain test based upon natural conditions but not taking into account high wind speeds generally associated with natural rain.

Guidance is given on the applicability of the tests and the severities to be selected.
