09/04/18 IP Waterproof vs Military Grade for Boat Lights

Article - September 4, 2018 By LarsonElectronics.com

52W Explosion Proof LED Fixture - ATEX/IECEx Zone 2, 21, 22 - Ceiling/Wall Mount - IP67

IP Waterproof vs Military Grade for Boat Lights

Boat lights are exposed to harsh elements on a regular basis, such as extreme temperatures and corrosive substances. Because of this, operators frequently seek out heavy-duty luminaries that are waterproof and/or high grade.

This article takes a closer look at the differences between IP ratings and military grade boat lights.


IP Ratings 101

IP ratings are used to describe the waterproof capabilities of boat lights. The first number symbolizes the unit’s ability to withstand intrusions from solid objects and dust; while the second digit refers to protection from water, moisture and water jets.

An IP rating provides very detailed descriptions of waterproof protection. An example of a common IP rating for boat lights is IP67. This standard suggests the lamp is dust light (based on the number 6) and provides protection from powerful water jets (based on the number 7).

Furthermore, some IP ratings measure the following features: time of exposure, pressure/water volume, direction of water spray and distance of immersion (submersible).


What about Military Grade?

Generally speaking, the term ‘military grade’ refers to equipment meeting specific military specification standards. When purchasing boat lights, individuals should check if the unit actually does adhere to certain military standards, as the term can be used loosely as a product description. Like the term weatherproof, ‘military grade’ can also be applied to describe the sturdiness of a product.

In some instances, ‘military grade’ is cross referencing an IP rating that is part of the standard. This is because some military specifications incorporate the IP scale with their recommendations. To ensure the lamp actually meets mil-spec, it is important to seek out the specific standards and certifications (if any) that come with the unit. This extra step provides more information about the capabilities of the lamp, as well as peace of mind during use.
