Long life, heavy-duty snap switches

03 December 2008

Now available from Aerco are the GP and E ranges of precision, long life, snap action switches from Cherry Electrical Products that are targeted at commercial and industrial applications that require a high performance micro switch. The heavy duty GP switches can handle up to 20A and have a mechanical life of one million actuations while the E series switches are available in single and double-pole configurations with five current ratings from 0.1 to 30.1A. Rubber boots are available for the GP series that provide protection to IP65.

The GP series features an ultra small travel differential, is supplied with a wide range of actuators and is available with an optional low operating force. Screw or solder terminations can be specified and the switches feature a high-quality build that uses insert-moulded terminal pins, gold over silver plated contacts and a high-strength, titanium copper alloy spring. The housing comprises a rugged phenolic case and cover. E series switches feature a similarly high build quality and can be supplied with operating temperatures of up to 200ºC.

Applications will include pressure switches, commercial hand dryers, garage door sensors, fork lift truck motor stops, lift controllers, X-ray equipment and a wide range of other industrial machinery.
