IP means Ingress Protection and by the act of ICE (International Electrotechnical Commission) – 529, Ingress Protection IP –XY. It’s a measuring standard for any kind of manufacturing products like motor, cell phone, and others for solid dust particle and liquid particle penetration to the manufactured products. It presented by capital XY.

Where X= First Characteristic Number, for the protection of the machine against penetrating of any kind of solid particle.

And Y= Second Characteristic Number, for the protection of the machine against penetrating of any kind of liquid particle.

“X” has 0-5 stages and “Y” has 0-8 stages of the level. Now I am going to give you the description for all level.

‘X’ For Solid Particle: Where

0 = Non-Protected Machine or Products.
1 = The Machine is Protected Against Solid Particle ≥ 50mm.
2 = The Machine is Protected Against Solid Particle ≥ 12mm.
3 = The Machine is Protected Against Solid Particle ≥ 5mm.
4 = The Machine is Protected Against Solid Particle ≥ 1mm.
5 = The Machine is Protected Against Solid Dust Particle.

‘Y’ For Liquid Particle: Where

0 = Non-Protected Machine or Products.
1 = The Machine is Protected Against Dropping Water.
2 = The Machine is Protected Against of H2O up to 150 vertical.
3 = The Machine is Protected Against any Kind of Spray of Water.
4 = The Machine is Protected Against of Splashing of H2O.
5 = The Machine is Protected Against of Water Jet.
6 = The Machine is Protected Against the Condition of Ship’s Deck.
7 = The Machine is Protected Against the Effects of Immersion.
8 = Full Protection (Submersible Machine).

Thanks!
