Test procedure

Protected systems are classified in so-called IP-codes as regards their suitability for different environmental conditions.

The abbreviation IP stands for International Protection. In some cases the abbreviation also stands for Ingress Protection in English-speaking countries.



There are various German and international standards for the IP-codes:

DIN EN 60529; VDE 0470-1

Degrees of Protection provided by Enclosures (IP-Code)

ISO 20653

Road vehicles -- Degrees of protection (IP-Code) (replacing DIN 40050)

DIN EN 60068-2-18

Environmental simulation: water



MIL-STD-810G

Rain

RTCA DO-160G

Waterproofness

NEMA 250

VW 80000



All standards are equally valid but differ regarding revision status and details. It is therefore necessary to indicate the referenced standard for an unequivocal determination of IP-codes.
