What is IP (Ingress Protection)? Almost everything used today has an IP rating, from cameras to phone cases and of course LED Strip lights. The acronym [IP" stands for Ingress Protection.IP ratings are intended to provide the end-user of a product with a classification that has more meaning than the term [waterproof." The ratings indicate the level of protection provided against dust intrusions, accidental contact with dust, and water by mechanical casings and electrical enclosures. The first number from the IP rating goes from 0-6 and it classifies how dust resistant the enclosure really is. The number zero means that it has no protection against contact and ingress of objects and the number 6 means it`s dust tight. The second number of the IP rating ranges from 0-9 and it stands for liquid ingress protection. Zero means that it is not protected and 9 or 9K is protected against close-range high pressure, high temperature spray downs. In a nutshell the IP rating is a key component in deciding which product is right for your application.
The IP68 version means the ingress protection is dust tight (number 6) just like our IP67 LED Strip. The number 8 means that it is suitable for continuous immersion in water. It means that the LED Strip is hermetically sealed and can be immersed underwater for a certain amount of time. This strip is great for fountains or pool decor allowing you to have strong vivid LED lighting effects where you thought it impossible. This strip has the highest ingress protection rating for our LED Strips. There`s an option betweensingle density and double density strips and it comes in a 5M (16.4ft) reel. Note: we advice strongly against immersing LED Strips where human life or any living being will be present
