Ip Ratings Explained

Recommended Posts

This information may be helpful for folks when deciding on a detector for their intended application(s).

Can be used to compare detector models as well.

Good reference, thanks! If you go by IP ratings quite a few detectors might be considered borderline for all day submersion. I guess they either work or not though.

Do Detectors have IP ratings? How would a GPZ, GPX5000, CTX, GM1000 and. GB2 rate and compare?

Most new detectors that are intended to be water resistant or waterproof have an IP rating referenced in the literature. The rest, including most older models, do not have official IP ratings. Looking at the specification at the link most would rate as a IP 50 or perhaps IP 51.

The White’s MX Sport for instance is IP 68 Certified.

I don’t have time to look up and compile a list for other models that do have an IP rating.
