GESITS is an Indonesia electric scooter with design and manufacture in Institute of Technology Sepuluh Nopember (ITS) Surabaya, Indonesia. It is the first electric scooter in Indonesia that developed by a group of Indonesian engineers and business people that banded together to deliver the product to the market. One of the key to the successful implementation of e-scooter is the water resistance performance test of the e-scooter. In order to accomplish the protection, it is important to conduct the water ingress test based on Standard IPX5. In this paper explains the water resistance performance test for GESITS and then discuss some results. In accordance with the test procedure to evaluate IPX5 protection against ingress of water, the water resistance shall be carried out by spraying with a stream of fresh water the enclosure from all practicable directions with a standard test nozzle. The results showed that after finished the test and analyzing both the battery compartment and the controller compartment, it was determined that GESITS passes Ingress Protection and meets the engineering requirements. No water was observed inside the compartment during the visual inspection performed after the IPX5 exposure. Thus the degree of protection against water corresponds to IPX5 for GESITS. A visual inspection conducted upon completion of the exposure period also found no visible evidence of damage or degradation. It can be concluded that the result comply with the requirements since there wasn't any water that entered the enclosure.
