Product Description

Not every specification for the products that B&H Photo sells requires a secret decoder ring. We all know what height, width, length, and weight are. Photographers are familiar with megapixels and ISO ranges. However, there is one specification that pops up across many product lines that you might not be familiar with: IP Rating.

You will find the “IP Rating” specification on products like hard and waterproof cases, flashlights, headlamps, bicycle lights, lanterns, walkie talkies, mobile Bluetooth speakers, virtual assistant speakers and displays, unlocked cell phones, security cameras, and more.

So, what is the IP Rating and what do the numbers signify? Let’s take a look!

What is an IP Rating?

An Ingress Protection rating is designed to indicate how impervious an item is to intrusion from dust and water. The International Electrotechnical Commission’s (IEC's) Technical Committee 70 developed the code to grade the resistance of electronic enclosures to dust and water. If you want to dive into super-technical, not-very-light bedtime reading, look up IEC 60529 (first published in 1976) for the ins and outs of the ratings.
