NKK Switches announces the availability of the S Series family of IP67-rated water tight toggle switches. The S Series 15A-20A medium capacity toggle switches are designed to meet requirements of industrial and outdoor environments.
Available with or without locking levers, the S Series 17.5mm toggle switches feature many circuit configurations, including SPST, SPDT, DPST and DPDT, with a choice of momentary or maintained circuits. Locking levers can be specified for maintained circuits, providing an excellent choice for designs requiring a rugged safeguard to prevent accidental actuation.
Rated at IP67 of IEC60529 Standards, NKK’™s Series S1 through S29 give design engineers the ability to incorporate a reliable toggle switch into designs that will be used in a variety of environments where there is likely to be exposure to water and dirt. The standard bat-style actuator models also feature an optional splash-proof boot to cover the base of the actuator for additional sealing ability to guard against dangerous contamination.
All S Series switches feature solder lug terminals and all are panel mount with 12mm threaded bushings, which are brass with chrome plating. The series’™ mounting design conforms to standard panel cut outs, easing the task of installation.
Electrical capacities range from 15A to 20A at 125 VAC, 6A to 10A at 250 VAC and 15A to 20A at 30 VDC. Both inductive and resistive ratings are included in the datasheet specifications. Mechanical life is rated for 30,000 to 50,000 operations minimum, depending on model, and electrical life is rated at 25,000 operations minimum.
These devices are ideal for any design requiring human interface via a toggle-style switch in harsh environments, including industrial equipment, heavy machinery, construction equipment, transportation vehicles, aircraft, automotive, outdoor concert and lighting equipment, portable power tools and telecommunications devices.
