IK Testing

Impact Protection – IK Ratings are an international numeric classification to indicate the degrees of protection provided by enclosures for electrical equipment against external mechanical impacts. IK ratings are defined as IKXX, where “XX” is a number from 00 to 10 indicating the degrees of protection provided by electrical enclosures (including luminaires) against external mechanical impacts. The IK rating scale identifies the ability of an enclosure to resist impact energy levels measured in joules (J).

IK Rating IK 00 IK 01 IK 02 IK 03 IK 04 IK 05 IK 06 IK 07 IK 08 IK 09 IK 10
Impact Protection (Joules) Not Protected 0.15 0.2 0.35 0.5 0.7 1 2 5 10 20
