IK10 (EN 50102): Impact protection certification
“Smart Parking v2” was tested according to the standards UNE-EN 50102:1996 + A1:1999 + Corr:2002 + A1 CORR:2002 (EN 62262:2002).
The node was submitted to 20 J impacts in several points of the enclosure (the equivalent to the impact of a 5 kg mass dropped from 400 mm above the impacted surface). After tests, no cracks nor holes were observed on the tested samples, proving an IK10 impact protection. IK10 is the maximum rating for protection against external mechanical impacts.

What is IK degree of impact protection?
Degrees of protection provided by enclosures for electrical equipment against external mechanical impacts (IK code).
And IK10, is one of the highest degrees of mechanical protection defined by EN 50102 standard. Protected against 20 joules impact.
Equivalent to impact of 5 kg mass dropped from 400 mm above impacted surface.
