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’.
