NT55M NOVAclock - IP54 Rating

  • PDF

The NT55M NOVAclock is an Android smartphone with a builtin barcode scanner. It is a durable data collection device with an IP54 rating. IP Codes, or Ingress Protection Markings, are published by the International Electrotechnical Commission and are objective, measurable indicators of the durability of devices. The codes are comprised of two digits. The first indicates the level of protection against solid particles, while the second indicates the level of protection against water.

The following charts* summarize the levels of protection indicated by each digit of an IP rating.
