Determining the water protection requirement for a device is the first step in water-proofing. The first portion of this webinar will discuss the differences/commonalities between IP and NEMA water protection ratings. This webinar will then discuss some PCBA level and Chassis level water-proofing schemes.
Michael will show some examples of board and chassis level water-proofing approaches. The board level methodologies reviewed will be potting, conformal coating, and hydrophobic coatings. For the chassis level the usage of LSR, FIPG, and foam gaskets will be discussed.
Finally, Michael will address the issue of condensation and possible mitigation methods.
