What are ingress protection ratings ?
In the construction industry generally, a significant volume of industrial electrical installations require a high level of ingress protection to be afforded from the equipment selected for the installation and the integrity of the installed apparatus.
The degree of protection IP sets using two-digit level of protection provided by the outer shell of a device.
The first digit represents protection against ingress of solid bodies.
The second digit is the protection against the ingress of water or liquid.
Electrical equipment for explosive atmospheres generally provides protection indices much higher than the standard industrial equipment.
Most of our products are in fact classified IP65/IP66, or even IP67 and can therefore be used in severe environments.
IP suitability ratings are a system of classifying the degree of protection provided by enclosures of electrical equipment. The two digits of the Ingress Protection rating are explained as follows:
