What does IP65 mean?

This refers to enclosure ratings. IP stands for Ingress Protection. It is an international standard of sealing effectiveness for the electrical enclosure’s safety against dust, dirt, moisture, as well as incidents with tools and accidental contact.

The numbers 6 & 5 have two separate meanings:

6 refers to solids. This means that the product is completely sealed against foreign objects large and small. This offers safety for the equipment against dust and particulates as well as safety for the user preventing tools or hands from touching potentially hazardous electrical components.

5 refers to liquids. This offers proven protection against forms of moisture as well as low pressure water jets. A 6.3mm nozzle of directed water is sprayed from all angles for a minimum of 15 minutes, if there are no harmful effects to the components it will pass.

Seamlessly Integrate With Systems Such As:

Vertical and horizontal band sealers, thermo forming, conveyor belts, bottling and filling lines, labeling equipment, stretch wrap machines, baggers, shrink wrap machines, side & bottom seal, sachet machines, flexible pouching, form, fill, & seal equipment, as well as almost any material handling options on the market today.
