The IP standard is an International Ingress Protection Rating. Giving you a clearer picture of how water resistant your product is, compared to vague marketing terms such as ‘waterproof’.
It’s a rating that states how protected the gear is against water getting into the casing and affecting the internals. In order to achieve an IP rating the product must pass an international standardised testing procedure.
IPX5 TEST – WATER JETS
Water projected by a 6.3mm nozzle at a flow rate of 12.5 litres/ min at a pressure of 30kN/m2 for 3 minutes from a distance of 3 meters against enclosure from any direction shall have no harmful effects.
IPX6 TEST – POWERFUL WATER JETS
Water projected in powerful jets against enclosure from any direction at a flow rate of 100 litres/min at a pressure of 100kN/m2 for 3 minutes from a distance of 3 metres shall have no harmful effects.
