Elektron Components Announces Arcolectric IP67 Sealed Rocker Switches

New to Elektron — Arcolectric’s extensive range of rocker switches is an IP67 panel sealed version. This neat, compact, sealed rocker switch will maintain sealing characteristics of the equipment without the use of external covers. Ingenious internal sealing provides the necessary seal while still maintaining a strong tactile feel.

“Having these robust products that can be immersed in water gives the engineering community another solution from Elektron-Arcolectric,” commented Charlie Fixa, Vice President for Elektron North America. Fixa Continued, “Arcolectric has a long standing global reputation as a manufacturer of innovative, high-quality switches and indicator lights, and will continue to be a leader in the market.”

Arcolectric IP67 Sealed Rocker Switch and Panel IndicatorsAlthough external switch covers can be used to provide environmental sealing, they can often obscure the switch status and give an indistinct switching action, Arcolectric’s new switch solves these problems.

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 has a 30 x 11mm panel cut-out with snap-to panel fixing, accommodating 1.0 to 3.0mm panels and is supplied complete with panel gasket; no extra sealing accessories are required. Terminals are 6.3mm fasten tabs.

The switches are ideal for use in equipment that will be operating in environments where the introduction of water or contaminants could affect its operation.

Panel Indicators now Sealed to IP67
Arcolectric’s family of indicators is second to none and for some time has included a series of IP54 rated indicators and IP66 rated LED holders. To further enhance the range new versions of some of the most popular indicators are now available with panel sealing to IP67.

There are seven styles, all of which have screw to panel fixing and chrome bezel styling. There is 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 LED’s are available in red, green, yellow, blue and white.

The panel mounting holes of this range is 6.3, 7.1, 10, 12.7 and 19mm diameter and there’s a wide range of terminations including; wire, 2.8, 4.8 and 6.3mm fasten terminals.
