Hello all,

I understand that a IP66 Weatherproof Camera is well ah......... weatherproof.

My questions are where can I find info on the IP66 rating. I have an application to place cameras in a egg processing plant where there will be washdown operations to clean up the area on some schedule. I don't know how the area is cleaned but I have to expect powerwasher of some sort.

My concern is that this IP66 may not meet the requirements of a washdown area.

Is there a better rating to meet my application?? Any thoughts or suggestions??

Thanks in advance.

Les

How about Explosion Proof!

Ip66 is the highest rating that they make, but check out this explosion proof camera:eek:. I am sure that it would work at even a nuclear processing plant.:thumbup:

I know you've already seen this Les, but I'll post it for anyone who hasn't...

The IP rating system

IP stands for Ingress Protection

The rating’s first digit e.g. IP66 relates to the ingress protection against dust (6 means dust tight, see the table below)
The second digit e.g IP66 relates to the ingress protection against water (6 means protected against heavy water jets, see the table below)

Protection against solid objects 1st Digit
0 Non-protected No special protection
1 Protected against solid objects greater than 50 mm A large surface of the body such as the hand (no protection against deliberate access). Solid objects exceeding 50mm diameter
2 Protected against solid objects greater than 12 mm Fingers or other objects not exceeding 80 mm in length. Solid objects exceeding 12 mm diameter
3 Protected against solid objects greater than 2.5 mm Tools, wires, etc of diameter or thickness greater than 2.5 mm. Solid objects exceeding 2.5 mm diameter.
4 Protected against solid objects greater than 1.0 mm Wires or strips of thickness greater than 1.0 mm. Solid objects exceeding 1.0 mm
5 Dust protected Ingress of dust is not totally prevented but dust does not enter in sufficient quantity to interfere with satisfactory operation of the equipment
6 Dust-tight No ingress of dust

Protection against liquids 2nd Digit
0 Non-protected No special protection
1 Protected against dripping water Dripping water (vertically falling drops)
2 Protected against dripping water when tilted up to 15º Vertically dripping water shall have no harmful effect when the enclosure is tilted at any angle up to 15º from its normal position
3 Protected against spraying water Water falling as spray at an angle up to 60º from the vertical shall have no harmful effect
4 Protected against splashing water Water splashed against the enclosure from any direction shall have no harmful effect
5 Protected against water jets Water projected from a nozzle against the enclosure from any direction shall have no harmful effect
6 Protected against heavy seas Water from heavy seas or water projected in powerful jets shall not enter the enclosure in harmful quantities
7 Protected against the effects of immersion Ingress of water in a harmful quantity shall not be possible when the enclosure is immersed in water under defined conditions of pressure and time
8 Protected against submersion The equipment is suitable for continuous submersion in water under conditions, which shall be specified by the manufacturer
