What are IP Ratings?
The IP Code or International Protection Rating consists of the letters IP followed by two digits and an optional letter. It indicates the degree of protection provided against the intrusion of solid objects eg. dust, water in electrical enclosures and accidental contact with body parts like hands and fingers. The standard aims to provide users more detailed information than vague terms such as waterproof.
The system utilizes the letters "IP" ("Ingress Protection") usually followed by two digits. The first digit of the IP code indicates the degree that objects are protected against solids and the second digit refers to protection against liquids.
