What do IP ratings stand for?

Do you know what an IP number is? No, it’s not a part number. IP is actually an acronym, and it stands for ‘Ingress Protection’. IP ratings are used to show the degree of environmental protection an electronic device has from dust, dirt, and moisture. The numbers that follow IP each have a specific meaning. The first digit indicates the degree of protection against solid objects. The second digit indicates the degree of protection against moisture. Below you will see each digit listed and what it means for the AED.

First Digit (dust & dirt protection)

  1. Protected from solid objects greater than 50mm.
  2. Protected from solid objects greater than 12mm.
  3. Protected from solid objects greater than 2.5mm
  4. Protected from solid objects greater than 1mm.
  5. Protected from dust.
  6. Totally dust tight.

Second Digit (moisture protection)

  1. Protected from vertically falling water drops and condensation.
  2. Protected from vertically falling water drops when titled up to 15°.
  3. Protected from water sprayed vertically at an angle up to 60°.
  4. Protected from water spraying from all directions.
  5. Protected from low pressure water jets from all directions.
  6. Protected from strong pressure water jets from all directions.
  7. Protected from temporary immersion.
  8. Protected from immersion under pressure.

If an AED has an X rather than a number, it means that the defibrillator has not been rated in that category.
