The 798BX-6/150 rating refers to its ability to resist damage from dust and water. For a device to have an IP67 rating, it must withstand immersion in 1 meter (3.3 feet) of water for 30 minutes without suffering permanent damage. These calipers are ideal for environments exposed to liquids and dust daily.
