What's IP67 Rating?


Latest company news about What's IP67 Rating?

Many devices have an IP rating to show that they are protected against dust and water, which can often impede operational abilities and lead to system failures.

In this blog, you'll learn more about the importance of obtaining an IP67 rating to ensure optimal performance and maximize customer satisfaction.

What is an IP rating?

IP stands for "Ingress Protection" and serves as the International Protection Marking.

Developed by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), IP ratings indicate how well a product protects against the entrance of solid or liquid particles, mainly dust and water.

In all IP ratings, the IP is followed by two digits. The first digit represents how well a product protects against solids, and the second digit represents how well it protects against liquids in varying volumes, pressures, and temperatures.

The first digit ranges from 1 through 6, and the second digit ranges from 1 through 9.

Below is a graphic describing the level of protection for both solids and liquids as indicated by each digit:

IP68, for instance, means that the system is completely protected against solids (6) and can stay immersed in water under pressure for an extended time (8).

The primary reason for using the term "IP certification" is to avoid generic words such as "waterproof" or "water-resistant."

For example, just because something is said to be "water-resistant" does not mean that it completely resists water or can stay immersed for an extended time.

However, a systematic approach like IP ratings that measures a system's level of protection against the elements erases any confusion regarding that product's capabilities.

(Even so, there are limitations to both solid and liquid resistance, and companies often indicate exceptions in the fine print.)

What is IP67?

If a product has an IP67 rating, that indicates it is "waterproof."

The 6 indicates "complete protection against dust over extended time" as well as "protection against contact with objects greater than 1mm in diameter, such as a wire or a small tool."

The 7 indicates the system is "protected against short periods of immersion in water while under pressure between 15cm and 1m."

IP67 products offer a greater degree of protection than those with IP65 or IP66 ratings, both of which are merely "water-resistant."

"Water-resistant" means that the system protects against water entrance to a degree, but it does not offer complete protection.

Why obtain an IP67 rating?

Besides establishing conformity in labeling a system's capabilities, obtaining the proper IP rating legitimizes claims about a product and allows customers to see what level of protection they should expect.

Customers have certain expectations as to how a product will perform, and IP ratings offer assurance to customers that a product will conform to their needs.

However, it is essential to ensure that an IP rating accurately reflects a product's capabilities.

Failing to obtain the proper IP rating harms consumer confidence, which can, in turn, endanger a company's standing in the market.
