Using your Bluetooth® Remote in wet and dusty conditions
To ensure the water resistance of your Bluetooth® Remote, the cover for the micro USB port must be firmly closed.
Your Bluetooth® Remote is waterproof and dust resistant in compliance with the Ingress Protection (IP) ratings IP57, as explained in the table below. To view more specific information about water resistance, go to http://www.sonymobile.com/global-en/support/discover-more/water-and-dust-resistance/.
All compatible accessories, including chargers and micro USB cables, are not waterproof and dust resistant on their own.
Your warranty does not cover damage or defects caused by abuse or improper use of your device. If you have any further questions about the use of your products, refer to our Customer support service for help.
IP (Ingress Protection) rating
Your Bluetooth® Remote has an IP rating, which means it has undergone certified tests to measure its resistance levels to both dust and water. The first digit in the two-digit IP rating indicates the level of protection against solid objects, including dust. The second digit indicates how resistant the device is to water.
|Resistance to solid objects and dust||Resistance to water|
|IP0X: No special protection||IPX0. No special protection|
|IP1X. Protected against solid objects > 50 mm in diameter||IPX1. Protected against dripping water|
|IP2X. Protected against solid objects > 12.5 mm in diameter||IPX2. Protected against dripping water when tilted up to 15 degrees from normal position|
|IP3X. Protected against solid objects > 2.5 mm in diameter||IPX3. Protected against spraying water|
|IP4X. Protected against solid objects > 1 mm in diameter||IPX4. Protected against splashing water|
|IP5X. Protected against dust; limited ingress (no harmful deposit)||IPX5. Protected against water jet spray for at least 3 minutes|
|IP6X. Dust tight||IPX6. Protected against heavy jet spray for at least 3 minutes|
|IPX7. Protected against the effects of immersion in up to 1 metre of water for 30 minutes|
|IPX8. Protected against the effects of continued immersion in water depths greater than 1 metre. The exact conditions are specified for each device by the manufacturer.|
