DEGREES OF PROTECTION IP
This is a two-number coding system (e.g. IP 65) to indicate the degrees of protection provided by the enclosure against access to hazardous parts.
- The number that comes first indicates the degree of protection against penetration by solid bodies.
- The number that comes second indicates the degree of protection against penetration by liquids.

|1||Protected against solid bodies with a diameter greater than 50 mm.|
|2||Protected against solid bodies with a diameter greater than 12 mm.|
|3||Protected against solid bodies with a diameter greater than 12 mm.|
|4||Protected against solid bodies with a diameter greater than 2.5 mm.|
|5||Protected against dust penetration sufficiently so as not to damage the equipment.|
Table 2 - Indicated degrees of protection for the second digit (liquids)
|1||Protected against vertically falling water droplets|
|2||Protected against falling water droplets with a maximum inclination of 15 degrees.|
|3||Protected against fine rain (sprayed)|
|4||Protected against water splashing in all directions|
