IP Ratings Chart

How to Read IP Codes

Read from left to right. The first number (left side of the chart) shown after the initial “IP” represents the rating of protection against solid intrusion, while the next number (right side of chart) represents the protection against water. The higher each number, the greater the protection. 

For a more in-depth discussion of what the various IP ratings mean for vehicle and marine components, see Waytek’s Guide to IP (Ingress Protection) Codes.
