IP Certificates

What does P mean?

IP stands for 'Ingress Protection'. An IP number is used to specify the environmental protection of enclosures around electronic equipment. These ratings are determined by specific tests. The IP number is composed of two numbers, the first referring to the protection against solid objects and the second against liquids. The higher the number, the better the protection.

Eutech applies the IP rating system to facilitate meter selection. Eutech meters such as the Waterproof Pocket Testers, Waterproof CyberScan Portables and Wall-Mount Controllers 2000 series possess IP ratings for added protection against certain environmental elements. Available here are examples of some of the certificates for products that have officially passed the IP-certification testing.

Example: Protection level offered by an IP 67 rated protected product
6 = Totally protected against dust
7 = Protected against the effect of immersion between 15 cm and 1 m

Protection against solid objects
First Number
0 - No protection (Sometimes X)
1 - Protected against solid objects up to 50 mm³ (e.g. accidental touch by hands)
2 - Protected against solid objects up to 12 mm³ (e.g. fingers)
3 - Protected against solid objects up to 2.5 mm³ (e.g. tools and small wires)
4 - Protected against solid objects up to 1 mm³ (e.g. small wires)
5 - Protected against dust; limited ingress (no harmful deposit)
6 - Totally protected against dust

Protection against liquids
Second Number
0 - No protection (Sometimes X)
1 - Protected against vertically falling drops of water (e.g. condensation)
2 - Protected against direct sprays of water up to 15 from vertical
3 - Protected against direct sprays of water up to 60 from vertical
4 - Protected against water sprayed from all directions; limited ingress permitted
5 - Protected against low pressure jets of water from all directions; limited ingress permitted
6 - Protected against low pressure jets of water, limited ingress permitted (e.g. ship deck)
7 - Protected against the effect of immersion between 15 cm and 1 m
8 - Protected against long periods of immersion under pressure
