IP69K is the highest standard on the Ingress Protection (IP) rating scale. It provides protection against ingress of dust and high temperature（80°C）, high pressure water (1450 psi)– making products with this certification ideal for use in conditions where equipment must be carefully sanitized.
In environments that require heavy washdown, such as in the food processing industry, Pharmaceutical industry, the combination of water, chemicals, high pressures and temperatures can prove fatal for electronic circuits and instrumentation. In many industries, where dust and dirt can be an issue, it is important to ensure that dust cannot penetrate the casing of a product and cause it to fail.
The IP69K rating offers complete assurance that the piece of equipment that has undergone that tests is both durable and resistant and conforms to the highest protection rating on the scale.
