Environmental simulation
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.

All standards mentioned here 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.
