This standard must always be indicated in all types of spotlights, projectors, lights, projectors, tubes, strips, etc. In previous post already speak of the degree of protection IP that had that have them luminaires installed in quarters of bath to be protected of vapors or splash of water.

The protection degree is represented by two numbers, the first value describes the level of protection against dust and the second digit describes the level of protection against liquids.
