In a previous blog we touched on the concept of the IP rating or code. The Ingress Protection rating is an important classification system developed by the European Committee for Electro Technical Standardization (CENELEC). The system specifies the level of environmental protection that electronic enclosures provide. The rating itself consists of two numbers (there is a third number, but it is rarely used), the first deals with protection from solids, while the second is about the level of protection from liquids.
If you visit our website and read up on Techna-Tool’s BK Mikro you will find that it has a IP67 rating. You might be wondering, ‘what does that really mean??’
