  • IP54 -rated for partial protection against dust and water splashes for a minimum of 10 minutes with an oscillating spray. See our RDR2500 radio.
  • IP65 -rated as "dust tight" and protected against water projected from a nozzle or rain. See our RDR2380 radio series
  • IP67 - rated as "dust tight" and protected against immersion for 30 minutes at depths 150mm - 1000mm. See our RDR4380 radio series,
