Ingress Protection testing evaluates the resistance to particle and liquid entry for an enclosed product. After testing has been performed, the product receives an IP rating, based on IEC 60529, according to the achieved resistance to solid particles and liquids. NEMA testing issues type ratings which carry a number of enclosure requirements, supplementary to solid and liquid ingress. EMTS specializes in all testing required for IP & NEMA type ratings.
The IP Code, or Ingress Protection Code is defined in IEC standard 60529 which classifies and rates the degree of protection provided by mechanical casings and electrical enclosures against intrusion, dust, accidental contact, and water. It is published by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC). The equivalent European standard is EN 60529.
Product failures in the sector affect any manufacturer or supplier, which often jeopardize the operation of the product and cause consumer dissatisfaction, but can also lead to costly malfunction studies and the need to rebuild the device. Such considerations add more time and resources costs by reworking the product mostly on design process, process technology modifications, new machining and reprogramming of mass production equipment, and even the need for a device revision if it requires third-party validations.
We have the capability to evaluate your product for dust and water resistance according to the IEC 60529 standard for ingress protection. To achieve compliance to common standards or NEMA classifications, products must demonstrate an acceptable level of ingress protection. IP ratings are also often required by sellers or retailers before a product is purchased from manufacturers and resold to consumers, regardless of a product’s intent to protect against dust or water.Get Started Now

Cortex Design worked directly with EMTS for physical validation of an engineered aerospace enclosure we designed. The team at EMTS was understanding of our requirements and provided professional guidance on the appropriate standards to test. They were very fast and great to work with; we will work with them again in the future!
I have worked with Garry Lee and his testing team for more than 14 years. Garry goes out of his way, to understand the requirements and match his services to them. In my current projects with Garry’s team my customers consistently say they are very pleased with the response and outcome of the services provided!
As a new health technology startup, we really appeciate the professionalism, attention to detail and collaborative service approach from Garry and his team at EMTS Lab. Their comprehensive design and testing capabilties were instrumental with helping us navigate through the critical stages of product commercialization.
TeTechS worked with Ovi Demian and EMTS to provide the right regulatory services at the right time, allowing the company to deliver a certified system to a large multinational manufacturer at a cost and timing that a small startup could afford. Working with him, allowed TeTechs to make the necessary design updates to ensure the product met the safety needed for implementation of the system in the factory.
