LED floodlights are often used in the field of small-scale engineering lighting, which can realize the control and requirements of a variety of lighting transformations. It is precisely because of this characteristic that floodlights are often used outdoors, making their waterproof performance particularly important. So what are the different waterproof grades of LED flood lights, and what is the difference in waterproof effect? We make a brief analysis of the following:
The protection class IP of outdoor lamps is generally IP23 or above and needs to be marked. The waterproof grades of LED floodlights are generally IP65, IP66 and IP67. The specific meanings are as follows:
1. The waterproof grade IP65 can prevent the water from the nozzle from all directions from entering the appliance, but it cannot be soaked in water for a long time;
2. The waterproof rating IP66 is resolved as "Electrical appliances installed on the deck can prevent damage caused by the invasion of large waves";
3. The waterproof grade IP67 is resolved as "the electrical appliance is immersed in water for a certain period of time or the water pressure is below a certain standard, which can ensure that no damage is caused by immersion."
Therefore, in principle, IP65, IP66 and IP67 cannot be immersed in water for a long time. If you need to immerse in water for a long time, it is best to choose IP68 LED flood light. On the other hand, regardless of the waterproof level of the LED flood light, if it is kept in a humid and rainy environment for a long time, you should also pay attention to regular maintenance and maintenance work to make the lamp life longer.
