CPANL™ Now IP5X Rated!

June 23, 2020

What does the IP5X Rating mean for light fixtures?

The Ingress Protection Code classifies and rates the degree of protection provided by electrical enclosures. The first digit rates the solid particle protection, a 5. The 5 means the product has been tested to ensure that dust ingress will not interfere with satisfactory operation of the fixture. The second digit rates the liquid ingress protection. An X denotes there is no data available to specify a protection rating.  While this product was not tested against liquid ingress it does meet the standards to be UL damp location listed
