IP Code (Ingress Protection)
International Standard CEI/IEC 529


The International Electrotechnical Commission established the IP Code to normalize degrees of protection provided by electrical enclosures, including luminaires. The classification system covers both foreign bodies, including dust (indicated by the first digit in the two digit code), and moisture (indicated by the second digit).

Our industry traditionally approached Booth Lighting by pumping out large quantities of ambient light, achieving only adequate levels at the task surface. Failing to control light wastes energy. But if it were directed to the task, less energy would be required.
