IP56 Rated Against Damp and Dust: Long Product Life

Cherry Electrical Products has launched three new families of waterproof rocker switches which are available rated for various AC and DC voltages, including high current 20A versions.  Typical product applications include outdoor power equipment, such as sprayers and power tools; garden vehicles such as lawn mowers; automotive products like dashboards and window controls; other types of non-road transport, including boats and snowmobiles, and medical equipment, for example, oxygen concentrators.

Three families of rocker switches are available:  the KG, KM and KT series, which cover a wide variety of pole, throw and switch function options to support such a diverse range of customer applications.   All three families are rated to IP56 against water ingress or dust and are approved under UL and VDE.
