For many applications requiring robust toggle switch functionality CPI sealed, waterproof toggle switches can be a good solution. Whether your application is
hand actuated or needs be actuated mechanically, we have a complete off the shelf part configuration that incorporates all the necessary switch electrical parameters as well as an appropriate mounting bracket for your application.
The niche for our switches is really for applications that are in wet, or outdoor environments, or environments that get a lot of heat and vibration. That’s because we manufacture our base pendant style switches with either a Santoprene or Neoprene coating. Not only does that make them completely waterproof (not water resistant or “splash proof”) but it makes them operational in extremes of temperature or toxic environments.
