Cascade TEK knows a thing or two about Ingress Protection testing (IP Testing), so we created this infographic to summarize how the IP rating system works. There are different levels of protection an enclosure will provide a product, both from solid and liquid intrusions. Having an IP test done on your product at an accredited test lab will ensure that your product is ready for market. From calibrated nozzles to immersion tanks, Cascade TEK is equipped and accredited to perform the appropriate IP test for your product.

hi-vac bakeouts at Cascade TEK

Space hardware must be free of contamination and be able to withstand radiative behavior of temperature and the very thin atmosphere of space.   100Km straight up  is the Karman line.  This is where the atmosphere becomes too thin to support lift.  Satellites generally fly at about 300 Km above the earth, which for vacuum folks is about 10-6 torr.   Cascade TEK’s SVO hi-vac ovens can reach 10-6 and often into the 10-7 torr range.
