In the “non-automotive vehicular” category, CPI switches have racked up hundreds of design-ins over the years. For sure, automakers could use our switches too but our reliability, durability and long life generally isn’t something they are willing to pay for.… Continue reading For Everything But Cars, There’s CPI
We spend a lot of time on this blog talking about how you can’t kill our waterproof switches and how the navy, and commercial marine industries come to us for their most demanding and critical waterproof control sensing applications. But… Continue reading Waterproof Switches for Recreational Watercraft
As a maker of some of the worlds premier, high durability, electromechanical switches, we can now say for sure that there are some things no other switch technology can do.
One of the most common applications for CPI switches is when they are configured as in 12v systems as safety switches, interlock switches or manually activated as when they are mounted on steering wheels of work trucks, fork lifts, even… Continue reading CPI 12v Switches For Demanding Applications
