“IP” stands for “Ingress Protection”, it is something everyone should keep in mind when buying any electronic device, cell phones, radios, etc, every electronic item you look at has a rating and can help you make a better purchasing decision in the future by knowing its durability against the elements.
The first digit of the IP code indicates the degree that persons are protected against contact with moving parts (other than smooth rotating shafts, etc.) and the degree that equipment is protected against solid foreign bodies intruding into an enclosure.
The second digit indicates the degree of protection of the equipment inside the enclosure against the harmful entry of various forms of moisture (e.g. dripping, spraying, submersion, etc.)
Most LED lights are IP67 which is great, but some cheaper lights are rated IP65, so be careful when shopping.
IP67 and IP68 lights are what you want for off road use and marine environment, while IP67 lights are great, our IP69K rated lights are very tough and will last a long time. Check out our video to see why!
IP69K is the highest waterproof rating possible
Any questions regarding IP ratings feel free to contact us.
6 – Dust tightNo ingress of dust; complete protection against contact (dust tight)
8 – Immersion beyond 1 m, The equipment is suitable for continuous immersion in water. Normally, this will mean that the equipment is hermetically sealed. However, with certain types of equipment, it can mean that water can enter but only in such a manner that it produces no harmful effects.
Test duration: continuous immersion in water, generally up to 3 m
