Posted on Apr 26th, 2013 by marybabitz

 
Seidio gave Cascade TEK a shout-out for Ingress Protection Testing on their OBEX Waterproof Cellphone Cases.  IP (Ingress Protection) is a classification system established by the International Electrotechnical Commission.  IP ratings define the effectiveness of enclosures of electrical equipment enclosures against intrusion from moisture, dust, etc…
An IP rating of 6 denotes the highest level on contact protection – 100% dust proof.
An IP rating of 8 denotes the highest level of protection against liquid and moisture – including complete, continuous submersion in water.
Attached is a very helpful guide to the various IP Ratings.   Cascade TEK is accredited to perform IP testing.
