We offer a range of water resistant enclosures and work closely with our clients to ensure our custom enclosures are suitably weatherproof or waterproof as required as well as using UV stable materials.
What IP Rating Enclosure to Use?
Where and how your plastic enclosure or casing is used will determine the degree of weatherproofing needed / level of IP rating required. Often outdoor electronic housing units will specify a minimum IP rating of IP65, IP66, IP67 – or possibly even IP68 depending on the application.
FYI we are able to produce outdoor enclosures that can withstand the harshest of environments. They are used for everything from mesh networks, to oils rigs and even underwater cameras.
IP Rating Explained…
IP (or Ingress Protection) rated is defined in international standard EN 60529 and used to define levels of sealing effectiveness or the degree of protection an object has against intrusion from foreign bodies (tools, dirt etc) and moisture (level of water resistance).
The IP code is used to clarify the capabilities of plastic enclosures instead of using ambiguous terms like ‘waterproof’ or ‘dust proof’. It’s made up of two numbers, the first is the ingress protection against solid objects, and the second details ingress protection against liquids, for example IP68. The higher the numbers, the higher the sealing effectiveness and degree of protection. For more information check out our IP Rating Enclosure blog which details what the IP rated numbers mean.
