Ball & Plunger switches in our J4 series continue to achieve new design-ins in applications where their small size and extreme durability can’t be matched. Under our stainless steel hood resides 75 years of experience making hardened, reliable switching components… Continue reading Hardened Ball & Plunger Switches Get the Job Done
For commercial applications of all kinds, switching 12 Volts is probably the most common bus voltage used with our sealed, waterproof limit switches. While CPI’s line of waterproof switches is rated to operate from 5V to 28V, 12 Volt applications… Continue reading CPI 12 Volt Switches – An Enduring Legacy
Vintage Indy car racing might not be a place you would expect to find CPI’s Waterproof Switches, but when you think about it, what better place for a switch that has to perform reliably 100% of the time? For those… Continue reading CPI Switches Race for Glory
Despite the economic roller coaster driving procurement and buying challenges around the globe, it turns out the defense of the nation is an area that can’t wait for an inconvenient pandemic to be over. Programs in the works for upgrades… Continue reading Why the Military Trusts CPI Switches
Those of us who have been around for a while have developed a reflex when confronted with unexpected challenges in business: Find the opportunity in the challenge, and focus on it until better days arise. This is not to minimize… Continue reading Now is the Time to Redesign Your Limit Switch Systems
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!
Taken directly from a competitor’s website, is this description of their watertight limit switch “…have internal parts that are protected against splashing or hose-directed water seepage within the limits of the NEMA specified tests for type 4 watertight enclosures. These… Continue reading A Heavy Duty Limit Switch with a Simple Explanation.
Designers looking for a robust waterproof limit switch, will almost certainly run across our switches at some point. It’s that “all roads lead to Rome” thing. Sometimes however, its not just the stainless steel, high electromechanical endurance aspect of our… Continue reading CPI Limit Switches – Climbing that Mounting
Sometimes, the best engineering advances arise out of failure. To quote Thomas Edison “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that don’t work!” Indeed as one looks at the development history of CPI’s patented J4 ball switch, its… Continue reading CPI’s J4 Ball Switch – A Problem Solver for the Military and Beyond
The design of the modern work truck is moving forward at an amazing pace. With long haul trucks, the focus has been on collision avoidance systems and advanced controls for fuel economy, but dump truck builders have long had a… Continue reading Dump Truck Safety System Design
