Product Switch Highlights: IP Ratings

RJS Electronics Ltd highlights and explains the key feature IP Rating, IP65, IP67, IP68 front and rear. See our range of IP rated series and products!

We offer a wide range of electro-mechanical components, both PCB and Panel mount switches to suit a variety of applications which are key for many industries. To quickly find the key product for your project or application, see our range of IP rated electro-mechanical components. IP Rating is a key feature and listed for many of our products making them highly durable and weatherproof.

What are IP ratings?

IP ratings are standards set out by IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission) under the 60529 standards document which specifies a classification system on the effectiveness in the sealing of enclosures of electrical equipment. This looks at the protection of factors such as dust and water/moisture.

The IP rating will depend on how hard wearing or weatherproof the component needs to be. For example, a metal push button switch in a swimming pool will need to be waterproof and hence this product will need a higher IP rated switch.
