As defined by IEC 60529, the IP (Ingress Protection Rating) protection grade system marks electrical equipment according to its performance against interference or intrusion of objects such as dust and moisture. IP protection grades consist of two figures: the first figure indicates the dust separating and foreign material invasion proofing grades of the electrical equipment, while the second figure indicates moisture proofing and water proofing levels. IP68 features among the system’s highest protection grades.
