Ingress Protection (IP)

With regard to physical ingress and water protection, VLE’s Lamps and Lantern shall achieve a minimum level of protection, based on the type of lamp, in accordance with IEC 60529

The protection of enclosures against ingress of dirt or against the ingress of water is defined in IEC529 (BSEN60529:1991). Conversely, an enclosure which protects equipment against ingress of particles will also protect a person from potential hazards within that enclosure, and this degree of protection is also defined as a standard.

The degrees of protection are most commonly expressed as "IP" followed by two numbers, e.g. IP65, where the numbers define the degree of protection. The first digit (Foreign Bodies Protection) shows the extent to which the equipment is protected against particles, or to which persons are protected from enclosed hazards. The second digit (Water Protection) indicates the extent of protection against water. There is a third digit, the Impact Protection factor, which is sometimes used. The IP is normally displayed in the format shown below.

s = solids, l = liquids and i = impact (optional)
