Do you know the IP ratings and meaning of walkie-talkie?

Two Way Radios are built for purpose, such as camping, construction sites or office space. As radios are often used rain, hail or shine, some radios can be exposed to elements better than others. Today we’re going to look into IP ratings and meaning of walkie-talkie, and why they’re important.

IP is the abbreviation of International Protection, which refers to the internationally recognized protection level. IP rating is for the protection level of electrical equipment enclosure against foreign body intrusion, the source is the International Electrotechnical Commission’s standard IEC 60529.

In this standard, the IP rating is in the format IPXX. The first number indicates the level of protection against the entry of solid objects, and the second number indicates the level of protection against water entry. The larger the number, the higher the level of protection is generally indicated. Such as IP68: 6 means dustproof 6, 8 means waterproof 8.

Customers often ask: What level IP should I look for Two Way Radios?

I would suggest a good start is IP67, that way if your radio gets dropped in a puddle or cops a bit of rain it won’t be getting water damaged. It also ensures that you can get a relatively long life out of your radio as long as you look after it.

The specific protection level is as follows:
