IP ENCLOSURE RATINGS

Moreover, We offer the different type of enclosures adherence to Ingress Protection(IP) or International Protection ratings which are defined to the international standard of EN 60529 (British BS EN 60529:1992, European IEC 60509:1989). Therefore, these IP codes are used to define levels of protection for the application inside enclosures against solid and liquid.

IP ratings are two digits combine, each one has it’s own meaning.

  • IP65 ( number 0 – 6 or letter X )
    The first digit in the combination refers to the level of protection that the enclosure provides against access to hazardous parts (e.g., electrical conductors, moving parts) and the ingress of solid foreign objects.
  • IP66 ( number 0-9 or letter X )
    The second digit in the combination refers to the level of protection that the enclosure provides against harmful ingress of water.

If you already familiar with IP ratings you can see NEMACO™ IP enclosure products. However, if you need more information about IP rating, please visit our resources. Although IP ratings and NEMA ratings are the different standards. They use the different methods to categorize the level of protection from enclosures. Therefore, you should clearly understand all details about both standards to specify enclosure that suits your application.
