Vandal-proof cameras adopt resistanting vandalism materials that make it highly resistant to impact, such as a swing from a hammer or a baseball bat.How much of a blow a camera can withstand? There is an international standard for measuring impact---The international standard IEC 62262 which relates to IK ratings. This is an international numeric classification for the degrees of protection provided by enclosures for electrical equipment against external mechanical impacts.The testing is based on the type of hammer, mass of the hammer and the resulting impact energy.Details as below charts:
IK code and impact energy(values changed in Amd 1:1998)
Impact test characteristics
|IK code||IK00||IK01 to IK05||IK06||IK07||IK08||IK09||IK10|
|Impact energy (joules)||*||<1||1||2||5||10||20|
|R mm (radius of striking element)||*||10||10||25||25||50||50|
|Free fall hammer||*||No||No||Yes||Yes||Yes||Yes|
From the charts,we can see IK10 is the strongest rating.MVTEAM Vandal-proof camera with IK10 Testing report as below:
