IK shock resistance level

by Peter Knap last modified 2015-09-08 14:07

The IK-shock resistance level or the IK-Protection is a measure of the resistance of enclosures of electrical equipment to mechanical stress, particularly impact stress.

The IK code is internationally standardized according to IEC62262 (equivalent EN62262, previously EN50102).

There are ten types of protection, according to the impact energy, which can withstand the housing at least.

Protection IK00 IK01 IK02 IK03 IK04 IK05 IK06 IK07 IK08 IK09 IK10
Impact energy (Joule) - 0,14 0,20 0,35 0,5 0,7 1 2 5 10 20

The IK-code is applied, for example, switches, sockets, distributor housing, keyboards.
