Understanding Computer Ingress Protection Testing (IP Ratings)

Ingress Protection (IP) ratings are IEC standardized markings - denoted as IPXY - that clearly classify and rate the degree of defenses that mechanical casings and electrical enclosures provide against dust and water penetration, ultimately separating the right from the wrong when deciding which rugged tablet is built tough enough for the job at hand. The X number indicates the dust-resistance IP rating, and the Y number indicates the water-resistance IP rating.

Every Xplore rugged tablet goes through extensive Ingress Protection (IP) testing during the engineering and field-testing stages, and every tablet provides either an IP54, IP65 or IP67 level of dust-resistance and water-resistance. Explore our full lineup of IP-rated rugged tablets to determine which Xplore tablet PC will best safeguard your mobile investment from water or dust-related damage.
