Body Camera IP Ratings: Explained

Body Cameras, like other portable pieces of equipment, often come with an advertised IP rating. An IP rating stands for 'Ingress Protection' and is used to determine/define levels of the equipment's seal against intrusion from foreign bodies and moisture. 

What do the numbers mean?

The numbers that follow an IP rating have a specific meaning. The first number indicates the degree of protection from moving parts, as well as the protection of the enclosed equipment from foreign bodies (e.g. dust/dirt). The second number defines the protection level that the enclosure provides against various forms of moisture (e.g. drips or submersion). Generally speaking, the higher the IP rating, the higher the protection. See the chart below for more information on IP/Ingress Protection ratings.
