IP Rating for LED Strip Lights. Indoor, Outdoor & More...

LED Strip lights IP Rated

LED Strip Lights Ingress Protection from IP20 to IP68.

It is important to understand the meaning of the two numbers next to the IP (ingress protection) before we buy any electrical appliances including LED Lights. 

First of all , we should ask ourselves where we are going to install the new lights. Is it indoors or outdoors? So indoor applications might require a higher level of insulation because the lights will be exposed to splashes of water, vapour or just humidity. 

Our lighting experts created simple graphics to illustrate all the IP rated LED strip lights from IP20 to IP68.

Picture 1. Ingress Protection Process. How IP rated is applied on LED chips

 

IP 20: Protected against solid objects over 12mm.   No protection from liquids 

IP 40: Protected against solid objects over 1.0mm. No protection from liquids 

IP65: Totally protected against dust ingress. Protected against low pressure water jets from any direction. Limited ingress permitted.

IP66: Totally protected against dust ingress. Protected against high pressure water jets from any direction. Limited ingress permitted.
