Product Description

What is the Ingress Protection Rating, here, we are going todiscuss the international rating system that classifies devices for differentenvironmental conditions. That rating system is called theIngress Protection or IP rating as it is commonly referred to.Electricaldevices are found all across the world, in very different working environments,and even in the home. A device that is suitable for a clean environment like amedical process would be ineffective in a dirtier environment such as steelfoundry.All electrical devices have an IP rating, even the one you arereading here,IP Rating Basics,The IP ratings are defined ininternational standard EN 60529 and are usedto set the levels of sealing effectiveness of electrical enclosures and devicesagainst intrusion from foreign bodies such as dirt and water.The IP ratingconsists of two digits, such as IP68. Each having differentprotection and level.Having an international rating system such as theIP rating allows for conformity of electrical devices guaranteeing that adevice will be protected the same in different parts of the world.Lets breakdown the rating to better understand what a rating means.First Digit of IP Rating (Protection Against Solids).Thefirst digit in the IP rating is the protection rating against solids.The firstdigit can be a zero up to a 6 and the protection against solids increases fromlow to high.A rating of zero states that the device or panel has no specialprotection against solids.Protection level 1 protects from a large part of thebody such as a hand or from solid objects greater than 50mm in diameter.Level 2 protectsagainst fingers or other objects not greater than 80mm in length and 12mm indiameter. Rating of 3 protects from entry by tools, wires, and similar deviceswith a diameter of 2.5mm or more. A rating of 4 protects against solid bodieslarger than 1mm. Level 5 protects against dust that may harm equipment. Ratingsof 6 mean that the device or panel is completely dust tight. Second Digit of IP Rating (Protection Against Liquids).Thesecond digit in the IP rating is the protection rating against liquids.Thesecond digit can be a zero up to an 8. Just like the first digit, thelevel of protection increases from low to high.Protection level zerostates that the device or panel has no special protection against liquids.Arating of 1, protects against condensation and dripping water.Level 2 protectsagainst water droplets deflected up to 15 degrees from vertical. Rating of3 protects your device or panel from spray up to 60 degrees from vertical.A rating of 4 protects against water spray from all directions. Level 5protects against low-pressure water jets from all directions. Rating of 6 meansthat the device or panel is protected against strong water jets and waves. Arating of 7 protects against temporary immersion of your device or panel. And finally, arating of 8 protects against prolonged effects of immersion under pressure. Examples of IP RatingNow lets talk about how two digits inthe IP rating go together as a full rating.All electrical devices that have anIP rating will have a two digit rating as we mentioned before.1. IP68,If adevice has a rating of IP68, for example, the device will be dust tight andprotected against long periods of immersion in water under pressure.Thisexample is both dust tight and watertight according to the standards set up inthe IP rating.2. IP34,Lets look at another example, how about IP34.This devicewould be protected against larger solid objects, something over 2.5mm, andprotected against water sprayed from all direction.With this rating, the devicewould most likely need to be in some sort of enclosure because the solidsprotection is only against large objects.3. IP61 Lets look at a final example,IP61.Here there is full dust protection but the only liquid protection is forvertically falling drops of water.This device could be outside of an enclosureassuming water is not going to be used anywhere near the device.
