The object of this guide is to provide an easily understood document, aiding interpretation of the requirements for enclosure protection related to EIEMA products.
Principally, these requirements are detailed in BS EN 60529:1992 (IEC 60529:1989 second edition) which defines the degrees of protection provided by enclosures classified under the International Protection (IP) Code and the test conditions required to meet these classifications. This guide should be read in conjunction with those documents.
