How to measure the waterproof of infrared hunting camera? IP66 rating tells you!
With the development of technology, outdoor enthusiasts are increasingly interested in using infrared hunting cameras to capture wild animals. However, in outdoor environments, the waterproof performance of the camera is particularly important. So how do you test the water resistance of an infrared hunting camera? This article will show you a simple and effective way to check the IP66 rating on the product label.
What is IP66 rating?
IP(Ingress Protection) rating is a standard used to assess the dust and water resistance of electronic devices such as mobile phones, cameras, etc. The two numbers after the IP represent the device’s ability to protect against dust and water droplets, respectively. The first number indicates the protection level of the device against dust, and the second number indicates the protection level of the device against water droplets. For example, IP66 indicates that the device has good dust and water resistance.
Second, how to test the waterproof performance of infrared hunting camera?

  1. Place the camera in a container filled with water and observe whether water seeps into the camera. If there is no water infiltration, it means that the camera has good waterproof performance; If there is water infiltration, it means that the waterproof performance of the camera is poor.
  2. Use the camera in a rainy or wet environment and observe whether the camera works properly. If the camera can work normally in harsh environments, it indicates that the camera has good waterproof performance; If the camera fails in a harsh environment, it indicates that the waterproof performance of the camera is poor.
  3. Immerse the camera in water for a while, then remove and dry. Observe whether the appearance and function of the camera are affected. If the appearance and function of the camera are not affected, it indicates that the camera has good waterproof performance; If there is a problem with the appearance or function of the camera, it means that the waterproof performance of the camera is poor.
  4. Use the camera in a high temperature environment and observe whether the camera can work normally. If the camera can work normally in a high temperature environment, it means that the camera has a good waterproof performance; If the camera fails in a high temperature environment, it indicates that the camera’s waterproof performance is poor.
    Iii. Summary
    Through the above methods, we can roughly understand the waterproof performance of the infrared hunting camera. Of course, the purchase also needs to be combined with other factors (such as lens quality, sensor size, etc.) comprehensive consideration to ensure that the purchase of cost-effective products. At the same time, we should also pay attention to protect the camera during use to avoid unnecessary losses caused by negligence.
