The sealed rocker switch maintains sealing characteristics without the use of external covers.

Elektron-Arcolectric has introduced an IP67 panel-sealed rocker switch and panel indicators.

The sealed rocker switch maintains sealing characteristics without the use of external covers, which often obscure the switch status and provide an indistinct switching action, said Electron-Arcolectric. Ingenious internal sealing provides the necessary seal while still maintaining a strong tactile feel. Rated at 16(6)A, 250Vac T125, this single-pole switch is available in non-illuminated or LED illuminated versions. Both types carry ENEC approval.

The compact 'L' body profile of the rocker switch provides a 30mm x 11mm panel cut-out with snap-to-panel fixing, accommodating 1mm to 3mm panels. It is supplied complete with panel gasket; no extra sealing accessories are required. Terminals are 6.3mm fasten tabs. The switches are suitable for use in equipment that operates in environments where the introduction of water or contaminants could affect its operation.

Arcolectric's family of panel indicators is also now available with panel sealing to IP67. Seven styles are available with screw-to-panel fixing and chrome bezel styling. Designers have a choice of illumination with mains LED, DC LED, and neon or filament lamps. Alternative lens colors include red, green, blue, amber and clear, while the LEDs are available in red, green, yellow, blue and white.

The panel mounting holes for these IP67-rated panel indicators are 6.3-, 7.1-, 10-, 12.7- and 19mm diameter. A wide range of terminations is also available including wire, 2.8-, 4.8- and 6.3mm fasten terminals. The indicators can be used on internal and external equipment or in environments where dust or water could compromise the sealing integrity of the equipment.

The LH1037-125VAC IP 67 indicator lights are priced at $2.40 each and the 6100 IP67 rocker switch is priced at $4.80, both in quantities of 500+.
