NEMA to IP(IEC) Rating Comparisons


NEMA enclosure ratings are developed by NEMA and used in the U.S./American market.

International Protection (IP) – classifications are developed by the European Committee for Electro Technical Standardization (described IEC/EN 60529), and specifies the environmental protection and enclosure provided.

The following table can be used to convert NEMA ratings to IP classifications.

NEMA_to_IP-Ratings

NEMA ratings exceed IP ratings and therefore, this chart can only be used to convert NEMA to IP, but not IP to NEMA.  IP is a European standard for dust and moisture protection.
