The « IP » defines the resistance of the product against solids (first number) and liquids (second number).
When mated, the Powersafe is defined as IP68. The number 6 corresponds to the protection against the dust and the sand. The number 8 corresponds to the pressure watertight : the product can hold 48h under 2m water.
When unmated, we proceed to a finger test on the socket insert/contact. The socket counterpart is IP2X.
