IP Ratings - Dust and Water Resistance

Learn about IP Certifications and see how Getac IP certified dust and water-resistant tablets and laptops can help you work in challenging environments.


What are IP ratings?

IP (Ingress Protection) ratings are used to describe different levels of protection against dust, water, and foreign body intrusion. Typically, IP ratings are composed of two letters, “IP,” followed by two numbers.

  • First digit: protection from solid ingression, from things as large as hands, to particles as small as dust. It goes from 0 (no protection) to 6 (complete protection from dust ingression).
  • Second digit: protection from liquid ingression, including liquid droplets, rain, spray, submersion and spills. It goes from 0 (no protection) to 9 (protection against continuous submersion in water within certain limits and conditions).

For example, a certified IP67 tablet would be completely protected from dust and protected against temporary immersion in water up to 1 meter for 30 minutes. Getac offers solutions with highly rated intrusion and moisture protection, allowing professionals to work in challenging conditions when dust and moisture are present.
