What Does IP Rating Mean for LED Displays?
Ingress protection (IP) is a rating system that determines how effective a given piece of electronic equipment, such as an LED display, can resist harmful external elements. The IP rating provides a standard way to measure the quality of a piece of electronic equipment’s seal. For example, if you want to host an outdoor event that could be subject to rain or dust, you’ll need an LED display screen that has an IP rating near IP65 to ensure it stays powered on.
Written as a two-digit number, with the prefix “IP”, the first digit represents the ingress protection against solid objects, such as dust and dirt, and the second digit represents IP against liquids, such as rain or melting snow. The first digit (protection from solids) ranges from 0 to 7, where 0 indicates no protection and 7 indicates 100% dust tightness. The second digit (moisture protection) ranges from 0 to 9, where 0 represents no protection and 9 represents protection from full prolonged immersion under water. For the optimal viewing experience, whether indoor or outdoor, rent an LED display that has the best IP rating for your specific applications.
