IP Ratings

To indicate protection levels, we use IP ratings. IP ratings, known as Ingress Protection or International Protection ratings are numerical scores used to communicate the levels of sealing effectiveness of electrical enclosures against intrusion from foreign bodies such as dirt and water. These ratings are defined to the international standard of EN 60529 ((British BS EN 60529:1992, European IEC 60509:1989).

Example IP Rating: IP65

In this example, the first digit represents protection from solids and the second digit represents protection from liquid. If one of the digits is replaced by an “x” then the device is not rated for that specification.

Here’s a quick reference guide of the two and what they mean:

Solids – degree of protection from foreign bodies

Liquids – protection level from various forms of moisture (drips, sprays, jets and immersion).
