The IP code, or Ingress Protection code, is a system used to rate the degree of protection provided by an electrical enclosure against solid objects and liquids. The code consists of the letters "IP" followed by two digits. The first digit indicates the degree of protection against solid objects, such as dust, while the second digit indicates the degree of protection against liquids, such as water. This code is often used to ensure that electrical equipment is suitable for use in specific environments or applications, such as outdoor installations, industrial settings, and hazardous locations. Proper use of IP-rated equipment can help prevent damage or injury due to accidental contact or intrusion of objects, water or dust.
