The following table shows the different degrees of protection.
Usually there are IP65,IP68,IP69K for heavy duty connctor designs according to different application conditions.You can see in the below charts for all the IP ratings for heavy duty connectors which is presented by harting connectors.
So when choose heavy duty connector for your device,must need to cosider the IP ratings,Normally,for heavy duty connector or rectangular connectors suppliers usually provide IP65,IP68,or IP69K this 3 options to select,which can meet the overall allmost application working devise requirements.
