IP Code Chart

The IP Codes range from IP0X to IPX9. The first digit ranges from 0 to 6. The second digit ranges from 0 to 9. The two digits in an ingress protection marking code are completely independent of each other. Some devices only need to be IP rated to one of the two digits. Given these parameters, there are 70 combinations of ingress protection codes.

Keystone Compliance is accredited to all 70 combinations which are detailed at the bottom of the page. We also have experience with a number of the standards that reference IP Code testing including IEC 60529, IEC 60598, NEMA 250 and ISO 20653. There is a cross-reference chart between NEMA and IP Codes, which has been included below.
