- Jan 16, 2018 -

The IP (INGRESS PROTECTION) protection level system is drafted by IEC (INTERNATIONAL ELECTROTECHNICAL COMMISSION), and the electrical apparatus is classified according to its characteristics of dust prevention and moisture resistance. The external objects, such as the tools, the fingers, and so on, can not touch the electrified parts of the electric appliances so as to avoid electric shock. The IP protection level is made up of two numbers. The first numbers indicate the grade of electrical dust-proof and the prevention of foreign invasion. The second numbers indicate the degree of airproof and water intrusion. The larger the number, the higher the protection level.

IP said Ingress Protection.IEC IP (into the protection) protection level of safety protection of electrical equipment is important. IP protection system provides a dustproof, electrical equipment and packaging of waterproof and anti collision degree to classify the products, this system has been recognized by most European countries, the International Electrotechnical Association IEC (International Electro Technical Commission) and IED529 (BS in the draft, EN 60529:1992 (IP) packaging protection grade code) announced.
