Electromechanical Limit Switches in Mobile Equipment

Back in the 1990’s, construction equipment manufacturers were filled with talk about completely eliminating switches with contacts by the year 2000.  Concerns over environmental sealing, failures due to contact contamination or degradation over time due to arcing in high-endurance applications drove this… Continue reading Electromechanical Limit Switches in Mobile Equipment

CPI Waterproof Switch Panels

Sometimes you need a switch that’s really, truly waterproof. Not just water-resistant or “splash-proof. And if you want one with carefully manufactured durability and extended temperature operation, well you’ve narrowed down the field even further. For tough marine or outdoor… Continue reading CPI Waterproof Switch Panels

Pushing the Limit on Limit Switch Applications

As one of the world’s premiere suppliers of electromechanical, high endurance waterproof limit switches for over 70 years, CPI has accumulated quite the resume of interesting switch applications.  Our original customers were military and high endurance outdoor vehicles like dump… Continue reading Pushing the Limit on Limit Switch Applications

Take the Plunge with a CPI Plunger Switch!

Lets face it folks, sometimes it just takes a plunger switch. Whether your application is mechanically or physically activated, the tactile feel, and extended actuator of a plunger switch may be the only real solution for your application. For engineers… Continue reading Take the Plunge with a CPI Plunger Switch!

Liftgate Engineering for Work Trucks

Liftgate manufacturers need to contend with a great many variables as they seek to make their hydraulic lift assemblies operational on the widest possible variety of vehicles. Is it a pickup truck, straight truck, van, or trailer application being used? What… Continue reading Liftgate Engineering for Work Trucks

Aircraft Fire Detection – Spot Fire detection Systems

CPI’s X1 thermal switch is being increasingly used by both American and European avionics manufacturers and integrators as their thermal switch of choice for spot detection of overtemperature conditions in systems throughout the aircraft. Recent integrations include FAA approval as… Continue reading Aircraft Fire Detection – Spot Fire detection Systems

J4 Ball Switch For Robust Position Sensing

For many applications, standard garden variety ball switches won’t cut it. In fact, even Google is confused about ball switches, conflating them with tilt switches that happen to use a floating ball in their implementation. But engineers know, that’s not… Continue reading J4 Ball Switch For Robust Position Sensing

CPI Thermal Switches Are Heating Up

The vast majority of thermal switch applications we get have to do with keeping things from getting too hot. Just a few examples of this include: Gally fire detection Avionics Bay Over Temperature Brake over temperature warnings Hydraulic fluid temperature… Continue reading CPI Thermal Switches Are Heating Up
