High protection against dust and moisture

Protection against dust particles and moisture is becoming increasingly important. More and more applications are calling for optimized solutions in this area. The IP protection class provides information on how well a product is protected in this aspect.

The abbreviation IP stands for “International Protection”. In the Englishspeaking world, however, it is almost exclusively translated as “Ingress Protection”. These IP protection classes define the degree of protection of the housing against contact, foreign objects and water.
