Shop for Inspection Cameras

Information on an IP code An international protection code (or I.P. code as it is commonly referred to) is the marking which classifies how much protection a product has against various forms of intrusion.
An IP code states how much protection a waterproof tool has against liquid In terms of a waterproof inspection camera, the I.P. code indicates how much contact with water or liquid the device can endure.
An IP code tells how much protection an inspection camera has Without this information, the user might cause unnecessary damage to the camera head by submerging it too far under water.
Typical code has the letters IP followed by two numbers An I.P. code consists of the letters ‘IP’ followed by two numbers (in some cases an optional letter also follows the numbers).
First number signifies protection against solids The first number refers to the level of protection against solids, for example dust and grit.
Second number signifies how much protection an inspection camera has against liquids The second number refers to the level of protection against liquids, such as water.

For example, if a waterproof inspection camera has the code IP67 on it, the number 7 tells the user on how much liquid the device can withstand.

IP code table Each model of inspection camera may have a different level of protection. This information will be specified in the product handbook by the manufacturer, so always check the I.P. code before use.

Below is a table showing the standard level of protection against liquid that each number represents.
