What Is IP Rating?

- Sep 26, 2019-

Ingress Protection (IP) ratings are very important in industrial computing environments. This rating classifies the amount of protection a device has against intrusion of foreign objects that could damage it or cause it to fail or become unsafe. It rates protection based on solid objects (body parts, wires, dust) and liquid ingress (water). This way, it is known exactly how rugged a device is without using potentially misleading or broad terms like “waterproof”.


IP ratings are laid out with two digits, IPXX. The first digit reflects the protection from solids, and the second digit reflects the protection from liquids. So, for example, an IP67 rated computer would be completely protected from dust, and against immersion in water up to one meter deep for up to 30 minutes.


Solids Protection:

0: No protection


1: Protected against objects over 50mm, like hands


2: Protected against objects over 12mm, like fingers


3: Protected against objects over 2.5mm, like tools or thick wires


4: Protected against objects over 1mm, like most wires or screws


5: Protected against limited dust ingress (no dust deposit in the device to interfere with operations)


6: Completely protected from dust (dustproof)


Liquids Protection:

0: No protection


1: Protection against dripping water falling vertically


2: Protection against dripping water when the device is tilted at 15°


3: Protection against spraying water when the device is tilted up to 60°


4: Protection against spraying water from any direction


5: Protection against low pressure water jets spraying from any direction


6: Protection against powerful water jets spraying from any direction or temporary flooding


7: Protection against immersion in water up to 1 meter for 30 minutes


8: Protection against long periods of immersion and high pressure



TAICENN TM-PC240 series is an enhanced stability and reliability industrial 24.0-inch panel mounting P-cap. Touch monitor product. The design uses a multi-point (10- points) projective capacitive touch screen, and it can fulfill front panel NEMA/IP65 dust-proof and water-proof standards.

The TM-PC240 uses full-sealed box construction, and its front panel complaints NEMA / IP65 waterproof and dust-proof standard, to prevent installation in the control cabinet because of the scene splashing water droplets and water vapor into the host and thus affect equipment operation; high-strength steel box structure, so that it can adapt to the harsh industrial site w

ork environment, the most suitable for factory automation, machinery manufacturing, CNC equipment, textile equipment, communication networks, power automation and other industrial applications.
