Application

Control Panel for Motorboat Lighting System

NKK Value Add Provided

Port Electric Solutions, Inc. required a toggle switch for a motorboat lighting control panel. This panel allows full control of vessel exterior lighting and contains various electronics which are extremely susceptible to water damage and salt corrosion.

NKK Switches’ team provided switch selection guidance, and tested multiple toggles to find the best fit for the application. The M Series Dual Seal Waterproof Toggle has a watertight seal rating and salt spray testing needed to withstand harsh environments. The Dual Seal IP68 rated toggles are not only waterproof, but also dust tight and feature a built-in waterproof boot enabling the lighting control panel to function regardless of severe weather conditions.

In addition, a separate panel was created using NKK Switches’ LP01 Series Illuminated Pushbutton. The environmentally friendly and short body pushbutton is uniquely designed to prevent cap removal and tampering.
