Ingress Protection (IP)

What is Ingress Protection (IP) Number?
IP number of an enclsoure is defined by IEC 529 or EN 60529-4:1992 and shows the degree of protection against ingress (i.e. entry) of solid objects or water.
The first digit shows the protection degree against solid objects (finger, dust etc.)
The second digit shows the protection degree against liquid.
In general, the higher the number, the better the protection.
For example, IP 68 enclsoure can be used under 1 metre deep water.
