Vibe Submersible IP68 Exterior LED Fittings
On the forefront of superior technology, this month Vibe Lighting are excited to launch the new Elite series of LED Recessed Ground Lights and LED Outdoor Projector Lights. This advanced light series performs in extreme environments due to precision engineering owed to an IP rating of 68.
What is an IP rating?
IP stands for Ingress Protection and is fundamentally a rating system developed by the International Electrotechnical Commission or the IEC. The system is now being used to classify different degrees of protection against intrusion or immersion. The IP rating is an informative way to communicate how well a product is guarded against dust or water from damaging a product 1
The IP rating is usually followed by two digits. The first indicates the level of dust-resistance, the second water resistance. Dust-resistance levels go from 0 up to 6 while water-resistance goes from 0 to 9.
How does Vibe measure up?
With an IP rating of 68, the soon to be released Elite series of products offer supreme waterproof and dust protection. The first digit, the number '6', means that the product has total dust ingress protection. The second digit, the number '8', means that the instrument is suitable for permanent submersion in water.
For Vibe Lighting, product reliability is a paramount factor. The soon to be released LED Recessed Ground Lights and LED Outdoor Projector Lights epitomise this. With several new products, each with patented design and impressive benefits such as:
- IP68 rating, ideal for in-ground, underwater or outdoor application.
- Stainless steel (316L) front face and high quality andonized aluminium housing – ensuring corrosion free outdoor performance in salty, damp environments.
- 8mm tempered glass lens which supports 2000kg 'drive over' performance.
- Optimal long life of 50,000 hours.
When it comes to waterproof submersibility, measured according to the IP rating system, most manufacturers offer either the standard splash-proof IP54 rating, or the bare basic IP67 submersible rating - just 1 metres depth for 30 minutes. Not content with just the entry-level 1 metre for 30 minutes Vibe's new LED Recessed Ground Lights and LED Outdoor Projector Light series are certified as waterproof-submersible.
With the LED Recessed Ground Lights and LED Outdoor Projector Lights’ IP68 rating, coupled with energy efficient CREE LED chips, advanced construction and a 3 year warranty, makes these products the first choice for anyone looking for the perfect lighting solution to wet indoor or outdoor environments.
