IP (Ingress Protection) rating is the most common system for evaluating how “dust & waterproof” your connector is. IP ratings are categorized by two-digit numbers. The first digit represents the protection rating against solid foreign objects such as dust. The second digit represents the protection against the ingress of liquids. Typical IP ratings for waterproof connectors in the manufacturing industry are IP67 and IP65.
