IP Code is an international standard that speciﬁes the degree of protection for electrical equipment (enclosure).
The standard expresses the equipment’s ability to resist the intrusion of solid objects and water/liquid during the production or cleaning.
German standard DIN 40050-9 extends the IEC 60529 rating system described above with an IP69K rating for high-pressure, high-temperature wash-down applications. Such enclosures must not only be dust tight and complete protection against contact (IP6X), but also able to withstand high-pressure and steam cleaning.
This is the first IP69K drum motor in the world.
