Hubbell Offers Industry’s First Watertight Wiring Devices with IP69k Rating
Hubbell Wiring Device-Kellems is excited to announce that its line of Watertight Wiring Devices is the first in the industry to carry an IP69k rating – the most aggressive and highest rank on the ingress protection rating scale, which classifies the degree of protection against dust and water in electrical enclosures.

In harsh environments that must deal with potential exposure to water and dust, such as factories, food and beverage processing, agriculture, construction, and outdoor environments, protection against possible downtime due to exposure is crucial.

The following mating conditions for Hubbell Wiring-Device Kellems’ Watertight Wiring Devices all pass IP69k tests for dust, high-heat, high-pressure wash-down at various angles:

  • Plug to connector
  • Connector with closure cap closed
  • Plug to single and duplex receptacles
  • In-use receptacles (with plug installed) mounted to FD box and adapter
In addition to carrying an IP69k rating, the Watertight Wiring Devices line also holds NSF (a 3rd party certification that affirms suitability in food processing environments), UL Type 3R, 4, 4X, 6, and 6P environmental ratings.

“This IP69k rating ensures the highest degree of ingress protection against dust and water”, says Mike Williams, Senior Product Manager for Hubbell Wiring Device-Kellems. “Our compliance with this test proves that Hubbell Watertight Wiring Devices are the most durable and resistant to damage or impact from water, and high temperatures.”
