Indoor can use IP20, IP65 type. But when you use outside please choose IP67, IP68. A lot of customer ask “if IP68 can use in the water?” Yes, it’s. But we would like special remind:
Even IP68 don’t means it can put in water for a long time. For the laboratory, they will put strip in 1M deep water, and keep more than 30mins. It’s tell us:
1, Even IP68 can not be sure put for a long time, such as 30 days.
2,Should consider how deep is the water. Laboratory only put in 1M deep. If it’s too deep, should thinking about the waterproof pressure.
3, should consider about which kind of water? Freshwater or Seawater?That’s why we didn’t suggest put the strip in water for a long time.
