SCOTTSDALE, AZ — (May 10, 2016) – When the application requires a highly reliable, double layer, waterproof toggle switch with an IP-rating, engineers now have a new option to choose from with the unveiling of the Dual Seal Waterproof M Series Toggle Switch by NKK Switches.
The new Dual Seal Waterproof M Series toggle switch is the first complete all-in-one waterproof and dustproof toggle from NKK Switches that no longer requires a waterproof boot to be ordered separately.
Coming in both single pole and double pole configurations, the Dual Seal Waterproof M Series switch is suitable for construction machinery, marine applications, transportation equipment, food service and medical applications.
The M Series features a number of characteristics that distinguish it from other options on the market, such as a high torque bushing construction to prevent rotation and separation from the frame during installation, an anti-rotation design on all non-cylindrical levers, an interlocked actuator block to prevent switch failure due to biased lever movement and stainless steel construction to resist corrosion.
“This new switch is manufactured to fulfill the highest quality and design construction standards in order to prohibit entry of harmful particles that may otherwise compromise lever operation,” said Masanori Honda, president of NKK Switches of America.
The Dual Seal Waterproof M Series Switch consists of silicon rubber on the base of the lever and a sturdy nitrile butadiene O-ring on the inside for increased reliability and dust- tight protection. It is IP67 rated (under IEC 60529) to protect against an immersion of 15cm up to 1m, and is salt spray tested per Mil-STD-810G section 509.5.
