The Honeywell MICRO SWITCH Basic Switch line now includes the V15W Series of Watertight Miniature Switches. With an IP67 waterproof seal and a rating up to 10 amps, the 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, construction and agricultural machinery, industrial equipment, and medical equipment such as hospital beds, dental chairs and foot pedals.
The switches are fully configurable and include a wide variety of actuators, terminals, and electrical and operating characteristics. The switches are available in three options for protection: sealed plunger, dust-tight (with epoxy seal on terminals) and pre-leaded. They also feature Single Pole Double Throw (SPDT) circuitry.
