IP68 refers to scales that are good for heavier washdown applications. IP means ingress protection and the numbers carry meaning as well. The first 6 means there will be no intrusion of dust into the enclosure. The 8 means that the scale can be pressure washed, with room temperature water, through a high powered nozzle from any angle. The scale can also be completely submerged at a depth and length of time determined by the manufacturer. For more information check out our blog on IP Ratings Explained.
