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. The CAT S41, CAT S61 and the Samsung Xcover 4 are all IP68 Certified. The Samsung Xcover 4 can be immersed to a maximum water depth of 1.5 meters for up to 30mins. The CAT S41 can be immersed to a maximum water depth of 5 metres for up to 60mins, and CAT S61 can be immersed to a maximum water depth of 3 metres for up to 60 mins.
The MIL-STD-810 is a United States Military Standard that emphasizes tailoring an equipment’s environmental design and test limits to the conditions that it will experience throughout its service life. The CAT S41 and CAT S61 are tested with the Shock and Drop, Operating Temp: -25°C (-13°F) to 55°C (131°F) and Category 4 vibration. The Samsung Xcover4 has been tested in the following areas:
