Dust Test

Dust can be an invasive contaminant that may cause overheating and other failure issues for electronics devices and equipment. “Settling or Floating Dust” test standards from various industries are formulated to assist manufacturers to prove their products can sustain a dusty environment by being well-sealed, or unaffected by the contaminants.

A Settling or Floating Dust Test has dust blown upwards in a chamber where the sample is placed within, the blower will then turned off in order for the dust to settle on the sample. Some test standards also refer to this type of test as “Vertical Dust Flow”.

Industry Standards with Settling or Floating Dust Tests:

  • SAE J575 (Rev. NOV2006), Section 4.5
  • ISO 20653 (2006-08-15), Section 8.3.1
  • DIN 40050, Part 9, IP Codes 5K and 6K, vertical dust flow
  • IEC EN 60529 (IEC 529), IP-5 and IP-6, vertical dust flow, with under-pressure
  • IEC EN 60068-2-68 (IEC 68-2-68), LA2, vertical dust flow
