Honeywell (NYSE:HON) MICRO SWITCH™ Basic Switch line has been expanded with the addition of the V15W Series of Watertight Miniature Switches. With an IP67 waterproof seal rating and as the only V-switch in the industry rated up to 10 amps, Honeywell’s new V15W can be used in a wide range of high-current consumer and industrial applications where spillage or water could be a factor. Potential applications include off-road vehicles such as ATVs, golf carts, lawn mowers, and snowmobiles; construction and agricultural machinery; industrial equipment such as factory floor wash-down machinery; and medical equipment such as hospital beds, dental chairs and foot pedals.
Honeywell’s watertight V15W basic switches are fully configurable and include a wide variety of actuators, terminals, and electrical and operating characteristics. They offer repeatable, reliable and consistent performance within a broad range of conditions, meeting UL and other agency requirements. Able to operate in a variety of difficult environments, the watertight switches are available in three options for protection: sealed plunger, dust-tight (with epoxy seal on terminals) and pre-leaded.
The MICRO SWITCH™ V15W Series of miniature switches feature Single Pole Double Throw (SPDT) circuitry. Used for simple or precision ON/OFF application needs, the V15W Series combines small size and light weight with ample electrical capacity, low cost and long life.
