IPX1: Anti-drip Type I: can provide water-proof protection equivalent to 3-5 mm/min of rainfall for 10 minutes, and water droplets falling vertically have no harmful effects.

IPX2: Anti-drip type Ⅱ: is basically the same as IPX1, but it can pass the waterproof test of 15 degrees of upturn in all directions.

IPX3: Rainproof type: 60-degree splash water-proof protection, providing water-proof protection with a flow rate of 10 liters/sec for 2-5 minutes and a pressure of 80~100n/m.

IPX4: Splash-proof type: Basically the same as IPX3, but can provide all-round and angular splash water protection.

IPX5: Anti-spray type: Provides water-proof protection with a flow rate of 12.5 liters/sec and a pressure of 30n/m for 2 to 3 minutes. It is directly exposed to water jets in any direction without harmful effects.

IPX6: Water-resistant type: It can resist 3 meters of underwater depth for 2~3 minutes, with a flow rate of 100 liters/minute, and a pressure of 100 n/m. It will not enter the interior when it is directly sprayed by water in any direction.

IPX7: Anti-immersion type: It can be immersed for 30 minutes under 1 meter of water without entering the interior.
