Water Rating Definitions

We rigorously test our devices to make sure they’ll survive the activities for which they were designed. You should note that even if a device is above a depth it is rated for, it might still suffer water ingression if it is subjected to an activity that creates pressure on it that exceeds that depth rating.

Water Rating Definition Suitable
IP65

Withstands ingress of dust (dust-tight); vacuum must be applied. Protected against low-pressure jets of water. Water projected at all angles through a 6.3 mm nozzle at a flow rate of 12.5 liters/min at a pressure of 30 kN/m2 for 3 minutes at a distance of 3 meters.

light spray, rain, outdoor use in moderate sea conditions
IP67

Dust tight. Withstands ingress of dust with vacuum applied. Withstands incidental exposure to water of up to 1 meter for up to 30 minutes.

splashes, rain or snow, dusty environments, showering
IPX6

Protected against powerful jets of water. Water projected at all angles through a 12.5 mm nozzle at a flow rate of 100 liters/min at a pressure of 100 kN/m2 for 3 minutes from a distance of 3 meters.

heavy spray, driving rain, boat washing, outdoor use in rough sea conditions
IPX7

Withstands incidental exposure to water of up to 1 meter for up to 30 minutes.
