What is the IP rating ,what does it mean?

If you are not a professional technician or just a simple hobbyist for electronic products. You may come across some terms you don't really understand when browsing through the specifications of various electronic products.

For example, check our product parameters will have this specification: IP65.Do you think of what he is specifically?

If you don't understand, I'll go over the definitions in detail so you can match them up against our cabinet locks or other electronics.

What is IP rating?

It is a standard drafted by IEC to classify electrical appliances and other equipment according to their dustproof and waterproof characteristics.IP protection level is composed of two numbers, the first mark number indicates the level of the appliance against dust and foreign objects, and the second mark number indicates the degree of confinement of the appliance against moisture and water intrusion, the larger the

The number means the higher the protection level

0 No protection

1 Protection against solid objects exceeding 50 mm (e.g., accidental touch by hand)

2 Protection against solid objects exceeding 12mm (e.g. fingers)

3 Protection against solid objects exceeding 2.5 mm (e.g. tools and wires)

4 Protection against solid objects exceeding 1mm (e.g. tools, wires, and thin wires)

5 Protection against dust - preventing entry (no harmful deposits)

6 Completely dust-proof

The second number (Protection against liquids)

0 No protection

1 Protection against vertically falling water droplets

2 Protection against direct spray up to 15° vertically

3 Protection against direct spray up to 60o vertically

4 Preventing all-round spraying-allowing limited entry

5 Protects against low-pressure spraying if the water is coming from all directions - allows limited access

6 Prevents powerful spraying, e.g. for boat decks - allows limited access

7 Prevented from the temporary immersion of 15cm to 1m Test time 30 minutes

8 prevents prolonged immersion under pressure

So we know the exact meaning based on the specific description. For example, our electronic locker locks are IP65 rated, which corresponds to Completely dust-proof Prevents powerful spraying.

When it comes to light rain and dust, our smart electronic cabinet lock locks will give you peace of mind. Have you checked it yet?
