Mechanical Testing

Thursday, September 15, 2011

In 2010 the Logstrup modular system successfully passed the verification test according to the IEC 62208 standard for empty enclosures. The test covered degree of protection (IP rating), mechanical strength and resistance to corrosion.

The positive result of this test has an important significance for compliance with the requirements of the new IEC 61439-1 for verification of power switchgear and controlgear assemblies.

According to IEC 61439-1 the verification of ’the strength of material parts’ must be done by testing only.
However, it is stated that if an enclosure in accordance with IEC 62208 is used and it is not modified in a way which degrades its performance, then repetition of the enclosure testing is not required.
