IP is the international classification for water resistance of electronics. Water resistance is not the only aspect which is tested by the IP test, contact and ingress of objects is tested as well. An IP-code exists of ‘IP’ followed up by two digits. The first digit is the degree of protection for contact and ingress of objects. The second digit displays the grade of protection against liquid ingression.
The classification for protection against contact and ingress of objects starts with protection against objects larger than 50mm and a product is fully protected against ingress of dust with a rating of six. The resistance against water is indexed from zero to nine. A product is protected against dripping water with a rating of one and a rating of nine means protection against powerful high temperature water jets.
