Maintain and protect components or equipment
Whether it is revolving machines, electrical equipment or electrical components, the proper maintenance and degree of protection (against foreign objects, water, dust etc) of the equipment is vital in guaranteeing safety and operational reliability.
The Ingress Protection (IP) Code is a coding system that specifies the degree of protection provided by enclosures to give:
- Protection of persons against access to hazardous parts in the enclosures
- Protection of equipment inside the enclosure against ingress of solid foreign objects
- Protection of equipment inside the enclosure against harmful effects due to ingress of water
TÜV SÜD assist companies in testing and classifying the degrees of protection provided by enclosures of electrical equipment.
