First Number Degree of Protection Second Number Degree of Protection
0 No Protection 0 No Protection
1 Protected against solid foreign objects of 50 mm diameter and greater. 1 Dripping water ( vertically falling drops) shall have no harmful effect.
2 Protected against solid foreign objects of 12.5 mm diameter and greater. 2 Vertically dripping water shall have no harmful effect when the enclosure is tilted at an angle up to 15° from its normal position.
3 Protected against solid foreign objects of 2.5 mm diameter and greater. 3 Water falling as a spray at any angle up to 60° from the vertical shall have no harmful effect.
4 Protected against solid foreign objects of 1.0 mm diameter and greater. 4 Water splashing against the enclosure from any direction shall have no harmful effect.
5 Ingress of dust is not entrely prevented, but it must not enter in sufficient quantity to interfere whth the satisfactory operation of the equipment. 5 Water projected by a nozzle against enclosure from any direction shall have no harmful effects.
6 Dust tight; No ingress of dust. 6 Water projected in powerful jets against the enclosure from any direction shall have no harmful effects.

What is IP Code?

IP is short for International Protection (or Ingress Protection), which classified dust and water tight degree for enclosures.
When dust and water enters the enclosure, electrical devices might deteriorate or malfunction.
Save maintenance cost with Non-stone IP rated enclosures by preventing dust and water effectively.

Different degrees of IP rating

IP 55 stands for dust tight 5 and water tight 5.
Dust tight degree: Ingress of dust is not entirely prevented, but it must not enter in sufficient quantity to interfere with the satisfactory operation of the equipment.
Water tight degree: Water projected by a nozzle against enclosure from any direction shall have no harmful effects.
An IP 55 enclosure is suitable for general indoor environment.

IP 66 stands for dust tight 6 and water tight 6.
Dust tight degree: No ingress of dust.
Water tight degree: Water projected in powerful jets against enclosure from any direction shall have no harmful effects.
An IP 66 enclosure is suitable for general outdoor environment.

IP 67 stands for dust tight 6 and water tight 7.
Dust tight degree: No ingress of dust.
Water tight degree: Short periods of immersion in water shall have no harmful effects.

IP 69K stands for dust tight 6 and water tight 9K.
Dust tight degree: No ingress of dust.
Water tight degree: Close-range high pressure, high temperature water jets should have no harmful effects.
