In recent years, as commercial specifications of temperature, humidity, vibration, shock, drop, and sun exposure have matured, the requirement of the electronics industry has moved towards a high-reliability level—Military Standard Test (MIL-STD-810). This test seems to become an important indicator for every manufacturer, which they could present the difference with each other. MIL-STD-810 is a serial test designed by the US Department of Defense, and validates the reliability and durability of military products under harsh environments such as natural and man-made use in their life cycle.

As a professional reliability and independent laboratory, DKKRA iST commits to be a partner with customers in reliability tests. Besides many military standard tests are already delivered to rugged products currently, DEKRA iST builds up MIL-STD-810 dust-proof testing (Please refer to Figure 1) in recent. This new capacity will help manufacturers to fully satisfy the request of military-standard, which they would like to upgrade their outdoor products from IP(IEC 60529) dustproof level to military specification.

Different from IEC 60529(general electronics application) dust test and ISO 20563(automotive application) dust test, MIL-STD-810 dust test uses particle size < 150 μm of dust, with a wind speed of 8.9 m/s, in dry heat with low  humidity(<30%RH) environment, and evaluates the impact of dust on the gap/hole of product surface, even penetration into body, bearings and connectors. For a detail comparison of these standards.(Please refer to Table 1 below)
<Table 1 MIL-STD-810 V.S. IEC 60529 V.S. ISO 20653 Comparison>

The below table is MIL-STD-810 test methods that DEKRA iST provides currently : (Please refer to Table 2)

DEKRA iST commits with service optimization and customer orientation concept and always offers comprehensive and customer-satisfied solutions to clients. The additional military dust-proof test would make more complete of validation platform for rugged products.
