What is the protection level of the Zenmuse L1?

The L1 has an IP54 rating according to the IEC60529 standard. This means that it is protected against solid objects over 1mm in size and against water splashed from all directions. The protection level is not permanent however and will decrease over time due to device wear.

To ensure the highest levels of protection:

  • Before installing, make sure that the interface and surface of the gimbal are dry;
  • Before use, make sure that the gimbal is firmly installed on the drone and the SD card protective cap is clean, free of foreign objects, and closed;
  • Before opening the SD card protective cap, wipe the surface of the drone clean.
