The IP Code, International Protection Marking, IEC standard 60529, sometimes interpreted as Ingress Protection Marking, classifies and rates the degree of protection provided against intrusion (body parts such as hands and fingers), dust, accidental contact, and water by mechanical casings and electrical enclosures.
For IEC member countries, standard IEC 60529 classifies the ingress protection rating (IP Codes) of enclosures.

NEMA enclosure types

NEMA 4, 4XNEMA 4X
In the USA, the National Electrical Manufacturers Association defines NEMA enclosure types in NEMA standard number 250.
NEMA enclosure ratings are similar to IEC IP Codes and can offer the same protections, but cannot be mapped directly.

Ingress Protection Rating (IP Code)

EN 62262

EN 62262 – IK code on resistance to mechanical impacts (Revoked 2002)
Before the advent of the IK code, a third numeral had been occasionally added to the closely related IP Code on ingress protection, to indicate the level of impact protection — e.g. IP66(9).

Electrical equipment in hazardous areas

hazardous areasexplosion proofhazardous locations
Ratings between the two standards are not directly equivalent: NEMA ratings also require additional product features and tests (such as functionality under icing conditions, enclosures for hazardous areas, knock-outs for cable connections and others) not addressed by IP ratings.
The NEMA enclosure rating or IP code may also be indicated, but it is usually independent of the Classified Area suitability.
