What is the difference between IP65, IP54 and IP43 ingree protection level for flexible led display screen?
 

Definition - IP Protection Level

IP means "ingress protection" and there are various levels from zero to eight with two class numbers together.

Here shows the detailed explanation on IP rating of Solumax Flexible LED Display Screen:

There are various products with different kind of protection level. For our flexible LED video screens, LED video panels and LED video displays, the available IP Rating for option is IP43, IP54 and IP65.

First Number
(protection against solid objects) 
Definition 
No protection 
Protected against solids objects over 50mm (e.g. accidental touch by hands)
Protected against solids objects over 12mm (e.g. fingers) 
Protected against solids objects over 2.5mm (e.g. tools and wires) 
Protected against solids objects over 1mm (e.g. tools, wires and small wires 
Protected against dust - limited ingress (no harmful deposit) 
Totally protected against dust 

 

Second number
(protection against liquids) 
Definition 
 0   No protection 
 Protected against vertically falling drops of water 
 Protected against direct sprays up to 15o from the vertical 
 Protected against direct sprays up to 60o from the vertical 
 4   Protected against sprays from all directions - limited ingress permitted 
 5   Protected against low pressure jets if water from all directions 
 - limited ingress permitted 
 Protected against strong jets of water e.g. for use on shipdecks
 - limited ingress permitted 


IP43
From the table above, 4 means Protected against solids objects over 1mm (e.g. tools, wires and small wires), 3 means Protected against direct sprays up to 60° from the vertical.

Exactly speaking, the product with IP43 is not waterproof, it cannot be exposed in the outdoor open air or the place that the rain drops, water drops and spatter can reach.

If the product with IP43 is wetted by liquid, it will cause short circuit. if the water filter into the led that is not waterproof itself (like most of the 3528 SMD LED), the LED will goes dead.

If the LED screen with IP43 is wetted by rains, possibly the LED lamps will go dead in large quantities. And therefore, we only can install the LED screen with IP43 for indoor and semi-outdoor where the water can not approach.

IP54

5 means protected against dust - limited ingress (no harmful deposit), 4 means Protected against sprays from all directions - limited ingress permitted.

Our LED screen with IP54 is waterproof. We dip our flexible LED screen with IP54 into water and there is not any problem that the screen works in the water for several days.

The whole device including PCB, cables and LEDs are printed with one layer of waterproof material, so it is waterproof, we can install it outdoor even in the rain, But it is not for outdoor permanently installation. Because it is just protected by a printed layer which is very thin and can not endure long sunbeam, wind and acid rain, otherwise the printed layer will be corrupted by the bad weather environment.

So usually we use the LED screen with IP54 for outdoor temporary installation, for example, we can install the led screen with IP54 outdoor for an event with one or two weeks, after the event we need to move the LED screen indoor or put into the case ( must keep dry before we put the device into case).

Usually we use flexible LED screen with IP54 for rental business, mobile LED vehicle screen (truck, lorry, bus and so on the façade of the vehicle), mobile advertisement, road show, music tour, etc.

IP65

6 means totally protected against dust, 5 means protected against low pressure jets if water from all directions - limited ingress permitted.

The flexible LED screen with IP65 is for outdoor permanent installation, there are dual-protection, one is the printed layer and the other is silicon glue (silica gel). The exposed LED lamp is protected by additional layer of silica gel that is specially imported from Japan and which never goes yellow (the color changes).

Notes: there are also various kinds of LEDs, the façade of some LED lamps are waterproof, but some are not waterproof, the LED screen made of 3528 SMD LEDs is not waterproof itself. The outdoor LED screen must use waterproof and antioxidant LED lamps. (that’s why the outdoor LED screen is much more expensive than that of indoor.)
