A two-digit number established by the International Electro Technical Commission, is used to provide an Ingress Protection rating to a piece of electronic equipment or to an enclosure for electronic equipment.
Example: IP65 ,The two digits represent different forms of environmental influence:
- The first digit represents protection against ingress of solid objects.
- The second digit represents protection against ingress of liquids.
- The larger the value of each digit, the greater the protection.
As an example, a product rated IP65 would be better protected against environmental factors than another similar product rated as IP67.← What are IP Ratings 65 and 67(Ingress Protection)?
