What does IP55 mean?

Protected from water spray from any direction. IP55. Protected from limited dust ingress. Protected from low pressure water jets from any direction.

Is IPX7 good?

IPx7 is fine for taking into the shower. Pretty nifty 🙂 Well, X means no Dust resistance rating. 7 Means it’s good for immersion up to 1 meter depth for 30 minutes. That’s just immersion, and says nothing about exposure to pressurized jets of water like might come out of a shower head.

What does ipx68 mean?

Devices backed by an international standard rating of IP68 are deemed fit enough to withstand dust, dirt and sand, and are resistant to submersion up to a maximum depth of 1.5m underwater for up to thirty minutes. *Based on test conditions for submersion in up to 1.5 meters of freshwater for up to 30 minutes.

Is IP67 better than IP68?
