IP69K White Paper

Posted on April 17, 2017

IP ratings are typically identified with the nomenclature of “IP” followed two or three characters, for example: IP68 or IP69K. The first character after the IP identifies the level of protection against the ingress of solid foreign objects. The second character identifies the level of protection against moisture/liquids. The third character is a special identifier used to provide additional information related to the protection of the device. A detailed explanation of these codes can be found at IP Code – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
