IK code - impact resistance

Requirements for resistance to external mechanical impacts are given in the EN 50102 standard.

The two digits of the IK code describe the successive degrees of durability:

  • from 0 - no protection,
  • to 10 - resistance to an impact energy of 20 J.

Step 10 corresponds to the impact of a 5 kg steel hammer or ball against the enclosure from a height of 40 cm.
