What is IP Rating of LED Lights ? Such as IP20 IP68 IP67 IP65 IP44 etc

Protection grade of LED waterproof lamp
IP0: no protection.
IP1: prevent the intrusion of dripping water, and the vertically dripping water droplets (such as condensate) will not cause harmful effects on the lamps.
IP2: dripping water can still be prevented when the lamp is tilted by 15 degrees. When the lamp is tilted from vertical to 15 degrees, dripping water will not cause harmful effects on the lamp
IP3: prevent the sprayed water from invading, rainproof, or prevent the sprayed water with an included angle of less than 60 degrees from entering the lamp to cause damage.
IP4: prevent splashed water from invading, and prevent splashed water from all directions from entering the lamp and causing damage.
IP5: prevent the injected water from invading, and prevent the water from the nozzle in all directions from entering the lamp and causing damage.
IP6: prevent the invasion of big waves. The lamps installed on the deck prevent damage caused by the invasion of big waves.
IP7: prevent water intrusion during immersion. If the lamp is immersed in water for a certain time or the water pressure is below a certain standard, it can ensure that it will not be damaged due to water inflow.
IP8: prevent water intrusion when sinking. The lamp can sink indefinitely under the specified water pressure to ensure no damage due to water inflow.
The protection level is usually expressed by IP followed by two numbers, which are used to clarify the protection level.
The first digit indicates the range of dust resistance of the equipment, or the degree to which people are protected from hazards in a sealed environment. Represents the level of preventing the entry of solid foreign matters, and the highest level is 6;
The second digit indicates how waterproof the equipment is. Represents the level of water prevention, and the highest level is 8.
Dust proof grade of the first digit after IP
Number Protection range explain
0 Unprotected No special protection for external people or objects
1 Prevent the intrusion of solid foreign objects with a diameter greater than 50mm Prevent the human body (such as palm) from accidentally contacting the parts inside the electrical appliance, and prevent the intrusion of foreign objects with large size (diameter greater than 50mm)
2 Prevent the invasion of solid foreign objects with a diameter greater than 12.5mm Prevent people's fingers from contacting the parts inside the electrical appliance and prevent the intrusion of foreign objects with medium size (diameter greater than 12.5mm)
3 Prevent the intrusion of solid foreign objects with a diameter greater than 2.5mm Prevent tools, wires and similar small foreign objects with diameter or thickness greater than 2.5mm from invading and contacting the parts inside the electrical appliance
4 Prevent the invasion of solid foreign objects with a diameter greater than 1.0mm Prevent the invasion of solid foreign objects with a diameter greater than 1.0mm
5 Prevent foreign objects and dust  Completely prevent the invasion of foreign objects. Although it can not completely prevent the invasion of dust, the amount of dust will not affect the normal operation of electrical appliances
6 Prevent foreign objects and dust Completely prevent the invasion of foreign objects and dust

The second digit after IP: waterproof grade

Number Protection range explain
0 Unprotected No special protection against water or moisture
1 Prevent water droplet immersion Vertically falling water droplets (such as condensate) will not cause damage to electrical appliances
2 When tilted 15 degrees, water droplets can still be prevented from immersion When the appliance is tilted from vertical to 15 degrees, dripping water will not cause damage to the appliance
3 Prevent spraying water from immersion Protect against rain or damage caused by water sprayed in the direction with an included angle of less than 60 degrees from the vertical
4 Prevent splashing water from immersion Prevent water splashing from all directions from invading the electrical appliance and causing damage
5 Prevent spray water from immersion Prevent low pressure water spray lasting at least 3 minutes
6 Prevent big wave immersion Prevent heavy water spray lasting at least 3 minutes
7 Prevent water immersion during immersion Prevent the effect of immersion for 30 minutes in water up to 1 meter deep
8 Prevent water immersion when sinking  Prevent the effect of continuous immersion in water with a depth of more than 1m. The exact conditions are specified by the manufacturer for each equipment.

Led waterproof lamps are mainly divided into outdoor rain proof and outdoor waterproof.
1. Rainproof LED lamps generally refer to outdoor LED lamps that meet the IP65 standard. Such lamps do not need to be immersed in water, but only need to prevent spraying. Its main feature is the use of silicone sealing gasket to ensure that the spraying of rainwater from any angle will not affect the normal use of LED lamps. It is mainly used in urban lighting, architectural lighting and other fields as LED projection lamp, led wall washing lamp, led dyeing lamp, etc.
2. The requirement of LED waterproof lamp is that it can be completely immersed in water, so it needs to be implemented according to IP67 or higher IP68 standard. The LED drain lamp produced by Shubo optoelectronics increases the protection level on the basis of rainproof LED lamps, and achieves a higher level of protection standard by changing the air tightness structure and process of the lamp body. We also refer to foreign tests and standards to ensure that various LED drain lamps can be used in various harsh environments.
