PASS Alam Testing Procedures

NFPA 1982-2018 -versus- IEC IP67 Ingress Protection

NFPA 1982-2018 Edition PASS Testing Procedures

NFPA Compliance requires successful testing using two separate procedures for Heat and Immersion Leakage Testing. Three samples are tested and all three must pass 6 cycl of testing. Any water leakage will fail the test. To pass the test, the sample must function at operation levels established per NFPA1982-2018 edition.

NFPA1982-2018 edition NFPA section 8.5 Number of Samples Tested Number of Successful Cycles of Test Temperature and Time of Heat Immersion Water Temperature, Time and Depth of Water Immersion NFPA IP67
Procedure 1 Three sample PASS devices must successfully
pass 6 Cycles of 15 min heat immersion at 177°C
followed by water immersion for 15 min
3 Must Pass All 6 Must Pass All 177°C – for 15 minutes Water Temp . 18°C- for 15 minutes at a depth of 1.5 meters YES NO
Procedure 2 After passing procedure
1, the PASS is immersed
for an additional 5 min
(with the battery compartment opened).The samples are then
disassembled to observe
for evidence of water
leakage-leakage will fail
the test
3 Must Pass All 6 Must Pass All Water Temp . 18°C- for 15 minutes at a depth of 1.5 meters YES NO

IEC IP67 Ingress Protection Code Testing Procedure

IEC IP67 Testing does not include any heat immersion cycling and requires only a minimum of one water immersion test procedure. The test may pass when water is present – a pass condition only requires the sample to function properly after testing.

IEC60729 Ed2.1 Number of Samples Tested Number of Successful Cycles of Test Temperature and Time of Heat Immersion Temperature, Time and Depth of Water Immersion NFPA IP67
Procedure 1 Unit under test is
submerged to 1 Meter for
30 minutes in 25°C water.
1 minimum 1 minimum NONE REQUIRED 25°C- for 30 minutes at a depth of 1 meter YES YES
