“Music is the strongest form of magic”
Nowadays, music has become as essential as air. Music has the ability to aggrandize or add up to all your experiences. Every festival or celebration is incomplete without music. It is essential for the collective as well as personal experiences. Music remains a permanent companion for every individual.
People like to carry their electronic devices everywhere they go. They have curated special playlists for every mood and season. For their electronic device to remain unaffected by weather conditions and the music to play uninterrupted, changes in technology and its forms are required.
With the advent of the technological revolution, damaging our electronic products with dust or water has become the least of our concerns. It is not uncommon to see water-resistant technology being applied to smartphones, TAGG digital smartwatches, audio devices, cameras, and more. Almost every device, mentions the IPX rating on it, which ensures that your product is water-resistant. Therefore, a clear understanding of the term IPX becomes imperative.
What does IPX Rating mean?
IP stands for Ingress Protection and also referred to as international protection. IPX rating is the marking that denotes the level of protection against water, dust, etc. the IPX may also alternatively denote the object being ‘weather-resistant’, ‘waterproof’, or ‘dust resistant’.
The level of protection against ingress of solid particles or objects is described by the first digit number/letter. If there isn’t any info regarding the level of protection against ingress of solid particles than you will see X letter mentioned on the product which shows that it is a water-resistant device. While, if the product doesn’t offer any protection, the first symbol must be 0.
There are various levels of protection from 0 to 8 against the ingress of solid particles. If the first number after IP is 5, then the device is protected from minor splashes of water. While the first number after IP is 7 indicated its complete protection from water submersion up to 1meter of depth.
What do different levels of IPX rating mean?
Greater the IPX rating, greater the resistance. The following list clarifies the IPX rating and what does it imply
● IPX0- Zero/ no protection
● IPX1- Protects against Dripping water
● IPX2- Protects against vertically dripping water
● IPX3- Protects against sprays up to 60°
● IPX4- Protects against splashing water
