IK rating (International Standard IEC 62262:2002 and IEC 60068-2-75:2014) is the international standard which defines the degrees of protection against external mechanical impact provided by enclosures for electrical equipment.
Under this standard, Survivor’s range of luminaires are typically rated as IK10+. However, our products are designed to withstand the toughest conditions and are tested beyond this standard until failure. Survivor products are tested to IK26 ensuring unfounded extended durability and hi performance in extreme conditions.
The table below outlines the different classifications covered by the IK standard
|IK CODE||Impact energy (joules)||PROTECTED AGAINST|
|IK00||–||no protection against any mechanical impact|
|IK01||0.150||200g object dropped from 7.5cm in height|
|IK02||0.200||200g object dropped from 10cm in height|
|IK03||0.350||200g object dropped from 17.5cm in height|
|IK04||0.500||200g object dropped from 25cm in height|
|IK05||0.700||200g object dropped from 35cm in height|
|IK06||1.00||500g object dropped from 20cm in height|
|IK07||2.00||500g object dropped from 40cm in height|
|IK08||5.00||1.7kg object dropped from 29.5cm height|
|IK09||10.0||5kg object dropped from 20cm in height|
|IK10||20.0||5kg object dropped from 40cm in height|
