Why is it important to have an IP Rating system?
By having this universal IP Rating system, it gives the user the confidence that products can withstand certain foreign bodies and moisture. Manufacturers specifying the level of protection the product is expected to deliver, giving a more precise definition to the customer, and a clear understanding of each products abilities and limitations in different environments.
When a product is marketed as ‘waterproof’ it would fall under the rating IP65, IP66, IP67 and IP68. If you have any questions around the IP Rating when designing a product it is always better to clarify with us.
