IP65 LED panel lights for dusty or wet environments

The IP65 LED panels are designed for applications in dusty or wet / damp environments where before this was just not possible with normal LED panels.  It is also ideal for the clean room requirements.  SGSLight offers IP65 processing for all our TLP LED panel series, which means any LED panel versions you want can be processed to be IP65 for the special applications.  Check our standard TLP LED panel series here.

What is the IP rating?

The designation to indicate the degrees of protection consists of the characteristic letters IP followed by two numerals (“characteristic numerals”) indicating conformity with the conditions stated in the table below.

First characteristic numeral
Solid particle protection
Second characteristic numeral
Liquid ingress protection
0IP00No protection0IP00No protection
1IP1XProtected against solid bodies larger than 50mm (eg: accidental contact with the hand)1IPX1Protected against vertically falling water droplets (condensation)
2IP2XProtected against solid bodies larger than 12mm (eg: finger contact)2IPX2Protected against water droplets deected at up to 15º from vertical
3IP3XProtected against solid bodies larger than 2.5mm (eg: tools, wires)3IPX3Protected against water spray at up to 60º from vertical
4IP4XProtected against solid bodies larger than 1mm (eg: fine tools, small wires)4IPX4Protected against water spray from all directions
5IP5XProtected against dust (no harmful deposits)5IPX5Protected against low pressure water jets from all directions
6IP6XTotally dust tight6IPX6Protected against string
water jets and waves
7IPX7Protected against effects of temporary immersion
8IPX8Protected against effects of prolonged

TUV IP65 test

SGSLight IP65 LED panel is tested by TUV laboratory according to Clause 9.2.2, Clause 9.2.6 of EN 60598-1:2008+A11.  The TUV testing report is here.

9.2.2:Dust-tight luminaires (first characteristic IP numeral 6) are tested in accordance with 9.2.1.

9.2.1:Dust-proof luminaires (first characteristic IP numeral 5) shall be tested in a dust chamber similar to that shown in Figure 6, in which talcum powder is maintained in suspension by an air current. The chamber shall contain 2 kg of powder for every cubic metre of its volume. The talcum powder used shall be able to pass through a square-meshed sieve whose nominal wire diameter is 50 µm and whose nominal free distance between wires is 75 µm. It shall not have been used for more than 20 tests.

9.2.6:Jet-proof luminaires (second characteristic IP numeral 5) are switched off and immediately subjected to a water jet for 15 min from all directions by means of a hose having a nozzle with the shape and dimensions shown in Figure 8. The nozzle shall be held 3 m away the sample.   The water pressure at the nozzle shall be adjusted to achieve a water delivery rate of 12,5 l/min ± 5 % (approximately 30 kN/m2).
