Protection

The housings of electrical operating equipment are classified under types of protection. The objective is personal protection and to prevent the ingress of foreign bodies and water. Details can be found in DIN 40050. The IP classes of protection (Ingress Protection) are quoted with two figures. The first figure describes the properties for solid bodies, the second figure the requirements for water.
