Project Description

IPX 3 4 Rain test chamber

IPX 3 / 4 waterproof tester China Supplier

Rain Test Chamber belongs to a type of environmental test instrument, which has the function of dripping or spraying water at the test sample by means of a self-contained water circulation system, simulating the rainy or soaking environment to determine the waterproofness of the specimen.

The IPX 3 /4 testing equipment is one of the most commonly used rain test chambers in industrial production activities.

It is applicable to lighting equipment, consumer electronics, electronic components and parts, automobiles, etc.

IPX 3 vs. IPX 4

IPX 3 Test

  1. The number of nozzles and the total water flow are based on the radius of the oscillating tube. The water flow rate of each nozzle is 0.07 L / min, spraying water on the sample for ten minutes in total.
  2. Take the sample as the center, spray back and forth at 60 degrees on both sides, a complete spray cycle is 2 × 120 degrees, and the test time is 5 minutes. The distance between the sample is not more than 200 mm.
  3. The sample is turned around by 90 degrees horizontally and tested in the same way for 5 minutes.

IPX 4 Test

  1. Spray holes are distributed on the oscillating tube spanning 180 degrees of the semicircle, and the total flow of spray water is preset following the standard.
  2. The oscillating tube is standing in the vertical direction of the sample, swinging 180 degrees to both sides, spraying directly against the sample. A complete spray cycle is 2 × 360 degrees, spraying for 10 minutes.

For some specimens, If there are some areas which are not wet during the test using this test chamber, you may choose our hand-held test unit (spray nozzle) AT-C1005BH based on IEC 60529 14.2.3 b.
