Wat betekent IP67

Als een product een IP67-classificatie heeft, betekent dit dat het “waterdicht” is.

De 6 duidt op volledige bescherming tegen stof gedurende langere tijd” alsook “bescherming tegen contact met voorwerpen groter dan 1 mm in diameter.

De 7 geeft aan dat het beschermd is tegen korte perioden van onderdompeling in water onder druk. Tot 1 meter diepte.

First digit: 6Complete protection against dust particles
Tweede Cijfer: 7Bescherming tegen tijdelijk onderdompelen in water

What is an IP certification?

IP” stands for Ingress Protection Rating. Now that the name is clear, it is already somewhat easier to understand. In other words, it shows how well electronic products such as smartwatches, smartphones, and LED lighting are protected against external influences such as water and dust. The IP abbreviation is followed by a two-digit number indicating the protection type of the product. Below, you can read more about IP67 and other certifications.

IP67: Immersion-proof

Looking for a device that will allow you to go through dust or a rainstorm without worry? Then we recommend you buy a device with at least an IP67 certificate. If you choose an IP67 product, you can be sure that it is completely water and dust proof. IP67 products are also known as 'underwater products'. This means that they can survive up to 30 minutes in water to a depth of 1 metre. More and more products are exceeding this level of water resistance.

Is IP67 Waterproof?

Yes, products with an IP67 rating are waterproof. This rating ensures that the product is completely resistant to dust and can be submerged in water up to a depth of one meter for up to 30 minutes.

The first digit (6) represents "protection against the ingress of, for example, water." The higher the number (on a scale of 1 to 6), the better the protection. This applies to dust, dirt, tools, touch, etc. The number 6 means completely dustproof. The second digit (7) stands for "moisture protection." Again, the higher the number (on a scale of 1 to 8), the better the protection.

What are common IP ratings?

Value(s) that are commonly found are such as: IP65, (IP67) these enclosures are resistant to water jets. In practice, this could be a water hose used to water the garden. The highest protection class is IP68 and is water pressure resistant, so it is suitable for use under water. IP69K thus offers protection against the penetration of dust, protection against very high Color temperatures and very high pressure (with water, for example), making products with this certification ideally suited for conditions where equipment must be carefully disinfected.

The work lighting van TRALERT® heeft een hoge IP waarde van IP67 tot wel IP69K.
