How Much Ingress Protection?

IP rating could be the ultimate decider or dealbreaker when it comes to choosing your preferred handheld enclosure. If your handheld controller will be operating machinery in a very wet environment then a low IP rating may rule out certain enclosure models.

ROLEC’s handheld enclosures can all be specified with an IP 6X rating:

  • handCASE (IP 66, IP 67) – any IP 6X enclosure offers complete protection against dust ingress. IP 66 provides protection against temporary flooding (as in heavy seas). IP 67 offers protection against immersion (depth 150 mm to 1,000 mm, for up to 30 minutes).
  • mobilCASE (IP 54, IP 65) – IP 54 doesn’t offer complete protection against ingress of dust. But any dust that does get in must not impair the functioning of the device. IP 54 protects the device from water splashing from any direction. IP 65 offers complete protection against dust and limited protection against water jets.
