Ingress Protection Testing

Ingress Protection Testing

IP testing rates and classifies the degree of protection the product provides against the intrusion of solid objects (i.e., body parts like hands and fingers), dust, accidental contact, and water in in the electrical enclosure or casing. The numbers (characteristic numerals) indicate conformity with the conditions outlined in the tables below. If there is no protection rating with regard to one of the criteria, the digit is replaced with the letter X.
