Designing Waterproof Assemblies

When designing an effective waterproof assembly, the potential consequences of water ingress, causing short circuits, corrosion, component failure and even fire hazards, emphasize the necessity for expert knowledge in material selection, sealing methods, and durability considerations.

Material selection is vital to ensure the enclosure can withstand environmental factors like temperature changes, UV exposure, and chemical exposure. Effective sealing methods, such as gaskets, O-rings, or adhesives, are critical to prevent water ingress.  Additionally, the assembly must demonstrate durability in harsh environments, including resistance to impact, vibration, and pressure changes.

At Novara Technologies, our experienced team collaborates with our customers to understand their specific requirements and environmental challenges.  We leverage advanced design software and simulation tools to create assemblies that offer superior waterproofing capabilities without compromising functionality or aesthetics.

Customised Solutions for Harsh Environments

Waterproof assemblies find relevance in a wide range of industries and applications. Outdoor equipment, such as outdoor security cameras, weather stations, and outdoor lighting, are exposed to the elements and require robust waterproofing. Marine electronics, including navigation systems, fish finders, and communication devices, face the challenge of saltwater exposure and must undergo specialized salt spray testing.  Additionally, in medical applications, where devices come into contact with various fluids, waterproofing becomes critical to ensure patient safety and device functionality.

At Novara Technologies, we understand that each client and application is unique. We take a collaborative approach, working closely with our clients to develop customized solutions that meet their specific needs whether it’s designing assemblies for outdoor equipment, marine electronics, or medical devices, we leverage our expertise and industry knowledge to deliver optimal solutions.

Comprehensive Testing Solutions

To ensure the effectiveness of our waterproof assemblies, we employ rigorous testing procedures. One commonly used method is the Ingress Protection (IP) rating system, which classifies assemblies based on their ability to resist ingress from solid particles and liquids.  The IP rating consists of two digits, the first indicating the level of protection against solid objects, while the second represents the level of protection against liquids. Different tests, such as water splashes, water jets, or full immersion in water to a defined depth for a specific duration, are performed to determine the IP rating.

Our testing facilities are equipped with the latest equipment and technologies, enabling us to conduct IP rating tests, submersion tests, and other specialized tests based on industry requirements.  By simulating real-world conditions, we verify the assemblies ability to withstand water ingress, thereby providing clients with the confidence that their devices will remain protected even in challenging environments.
