IP Ratings for Drones: A Quick Overview.

Estimated reading time: 2 minutes

IP (International Protection Marking) ratings are the standard used to classify a product’s resistance against water and dust. 

IP ratings usually include two numbers in their rating, where the first number represents the solid particle protection, and the second number indicates the protection against liquids.

When insignificant data has been gathered, there is no number to express it. In this case, the empty place is held by the letter “X.”

The tables are summarized as follows.

For dust protection:

  • Level 0 is not effective against dust particles
  • Level 1 is effective against dust particles larger than 50 mm
  • Level 2 is effective against dust particles larger than 12.5 mm
  • Level 3 is effective against dust particles larger than 2.5 mm
  • Level 4 is effective against dust particles larger than 1 mm
  • Level 5 is dust protective
  • Level 6 is dust-tight

 For water protection:

  • – Level 0 is not effective against water
  • – Level 1 is effective against dripping water
  • – Level 2 is effective against dripping water when tilted at fifteen degrees
  • – Level 3 is effective against spraying water
  • – Level 4 is effective against water splashes
  • – Level 5 is effective against water jets
  • – Level 6 is effective against powerful water jets
  • -Level 7 is effective against water immersion up to a depth of 1 meter for thirty  minutes
  • -Level 8 is effective against water immersion up to a depth of more than 1 meter  for long periods

For example, a code of IP61 stands for dust-tight and dripping water, and a code of IPX3 means the drone is protected against spraying water but has not been rated against dust.
