LED Lighting – IP Protection (Rating)

LED Lighting – IP Protection (Rating)
WHAT IS IP RATING?

The resistance offered by the fixture to the penetration of solids and liquids is indicated by the IP (Ingress Protection) rating. This is a 2 digit number, the first number identifies the degree of protection against the ingress of solids and the second number against liquids e.g. IP65 indicates total protection against dust and protection against low jets of water.

 

FIRST DIGIT
PROTECTION AGAINST SOLIDS

  1. No Protection
  2. Protected against solid objects greater than 50mm (e.g. accidental contact with hand)
  3. Protected against solid objects greater that 12mm (e.g. accidental contact with finger)
  4. Protected against solid objects greater that 2.5mm (e.g. tools and wires)
  5. Protected against solid objects greater than 1mm (e.g. fine tools and wires)
  6. Protected against dust
  7. Total protection against dust

 

SECOND DIGIT
PROTECTION AGAINST LIQUIDS

  1. No Protection
  2. Protection against vertical water drops (e.g. condensation)
  3. Protection against direct sprays of water, up to 15° from vertical
  4. Protection against direct sprays of water up to 60° from vertical
  5. Protections against water spray from all directions
  6. Protection against low pressure jets of water from all directions
  7. Protection against jets of water of similar to heavy seas
  8. Protection against immersion between 15 – 100cm
  9. Protection against submersion

News LED LIGHTS FOR OUTDOOR LIGHTING

We are witnessing a rapid rise within a few years of LED lighting. This irreversible process will be accelerated along with their appreciation. Additional accelerator that are adopted in the EU for a phased ban on incandescent bulbs, including halogen, and their gradual replacement with energy saving, including LED are especially promising.

News INFORMATION LED BULBS AND MOONS

Light Emitting Diode (LED) is a semiconductor crystal in which current can flow only in one direction and part of its energy is converted into light. It has a very narrow band, ie always has a certain color, depending on the type of semiconductor.
