Discussion on the Use of High Waterproof Rating for Street Lamp Waterproof Connectors
1. The waterproof requirement of the general street lamp is IP65, and the corresponding connector protection will generally choose the waterproof requirement of IPX5.
2. In order to control the quality and prevent consistency deviation, we will impose stricter requirements on suppliers, so we often prefer suppliers to provide IPX6.
3. Consider a situation where in some snowy areas in winter, the surface of our street lamps will be snowy during the day, and it may be thick. When it is cold, it will freeze the ice, and then when the street lamp is lit, the lamp itself is hot. According to the temperature rise data, it will be more than 20 degrees higher than the ambient temperature, so that the original icing will melt from the inside, and then the waterproof parts of our lamps will most likely be soaked in the water, so the original IPx5 waterproof may I am not satisfied with the requirements. At this time, high quality designs will require IPx7 connectors.
In summary, the waterproof connector can be comprehensively selected from the perspectives of cost, delivery time, applicable area, and customer requirements for product quality.
