Are there any IP ratings for ANIMATE? e.g. use in Wet Rooms
IP ratings identify levels of protection of people from, and water ingress to, hazardous parts. Within the ANIMATE range, the user-facing TUF-HP/ARC modules are completely low voltage (under 30V DC) and as there are no hazardous parts it would be misleading to give them an IP rating. Whilst the TUF-HP modules do not have water ingress protection, they have been designed to minimise the effect of inadvertent spillage, and the QF05/TUF-HP has integrated drain holes. Because of their low voltage and drainage holes, TUF-HP could be mounted in a horizontal surface, however, we suggest they are mounted in vertical surfaces, especially in wet or spill-prone environments. Electrical safety in wet or spill-prone areas is enhanced with ANIMATE, because the high voltage (110-230V AC) components, such as the ANIMATE PSU (Power Supply) and AC connectors (GST18), can all be installed remotely from any liquid hazard. Effectively, whilst the low voltage makes TUF-HP intrinsically safe, it should not be put in a position that repeatedly ‘gets wet’.
