In appliance DESIGN Magazine, Global Business Leader Victor Lusvardi and Product Specialist Chuck Seipel talk about how to keep smart phones protected.
The International Standard IEC 60529 defines specific tests used to verify that an enclosure meets the requirements for ingress protection against particulates and liquids. W. L. Gore & Associates has developed additional protocols to test for IPx4 compliance that address these issues and mirror real-world conditions more effectively.
A critical aspect of vent selection begins with defining the level of protection your application, device or housing requires.
IP ratings cannot be “converted” to NEMA ratings, since NEMA requires additional testing not included in IP. However, there are minimum NEMA ratings that will meet or exceed a given IP code.

Today’s consumers expect to be able to use their full-featured mobile devices anywhere, whether they are skiing on top of a mountain, talking on the phone while running through a rainstorm, or taking underwater pictures in the Caribbean.
Style 100 can be installed over the top of a top-port microphone or on the circuit board opposite a bottom-port microphone.
Style 200 can be installed inside the MEMS microphone during the microphone packaging process.
