Why You Need an IP69K-Rated Display
Many of our customers choose IP67-rated Murphy PowerView® displays for their strong protection against weather, dirty environments, and extreme temperatures, but when do you need an even tougher display?
First, let’s clarify what makes a display “tough.” One way is the IP or Ingress Protection rating. IP ratings like IP69K specify the extent of protection an electrical enclosure has against environmental conditions using two separate scores for physical and liquid protection. The first score (in this case a 6) refers to the protection against solids on a scale of one to six, with six being the best. The second score (in this case 9K) is the protection against liquids on a scale from one to 9K. Ingress protection ratings are awarded based on performance tests outlined in the IEC 60529:2013 standard.
All the displays we offer today already meet the IP67 standard, which means they provide maximum protection against dust and can withstand immersion in 1 meter of water for at least 30 minutes. Our newest display, the Murphy PowerView® 700 (or PV700), meets the higher IP69K rating. IP69K is currently the highest-rated level of ingress protection and it demonstrates protection against entry from high-pressure and high-temperature water jets at various angles that could damage any electrical circuits.
Who needs IP69K? If you have equipment that gets really dirty, the ability to rinse with a pressure washer can make cleanup a breeze. While other displays would fail in that environment and can only be placed in enclosed areas like a cab, our IP69K-rated displays can be mounted anywhere. This lets equipment builders put the right tools in the right place to ensure operators have the perfect amount of information and control to do their jobs well.
Defending your display against the elements is vital for keeping your equipment running smooth. All our displays are hermetically sealed, shielding the inside components from outside debris and liquids. The rigorous testing our displays endure allow us to hold our displays to a high standard, providing you with the reliability you need for your equipment. With an IP69k-rated PowerView display, there’s no need to worry about keeping control in the most extreme environments and washing everything down when the job is done.
