What does Ingress Protection mean and how does Zemic Europe communicate this?
On each Zemic Europe loadcell datasheet, you can find a logo in the shape of a tear. On the loadcell datasheet it is displayed like this:
We define the following IP values:
|First Character (Protection against solid objects)||Second Character (Protection against liquids)|
|6 = Totally protected against dust||4 = Protection against water splashed from any direction|
|5 = Protection against low-pressure jets of water|
|6 = Protection against strong jets of water|
|7 = Protection against 15 to 100 cm immersion|
|8 = Protection against long periods of immersion at a depth of 100cm or more|
9K = Protection against high-pressure water jets from all directions,
All our hermetically sealed load cells are IP68. You can recognize them when the second letter of the load cell is a "M".
Zemic loadcells are totally protected against dust! We have classified loadcells for protection against liquids in classes 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and even 9K!
