Cherry Electrical Products UK has announced that its general purpose GP and E ranges of precision, long life snap action switches cost up to 20 per cent less than other devices commonly available, yet retain all the performance of their more expensive competitors’ products. GP heavy duty switches can handle up to 15A and have a mechanical life of one million actuations; E Series devices are available in single and double-pole configurations with five current ratings from 0.1 to 30.1A.

Featuring an ultra small travel differential and a wide variety of actuators, GP series snap switches are also optionally available with low operating force. Screw or solder terminations can be specified. Internally, the switches have a high quality of build, featuring insert moulded terminal pins, gold over silver plated contacts and a high-strength titanium copper alloy spring. The housing comprises a rugged phenolic case and cover. E series devices feature a similarly high build quality and are optionally available with operating temperatures up to 200degC.

Applications include pressure switches, commercial hand dryers, garage door sensors, fork lift truck motor stops, lift control, x-ray equipment and a wide range of other industrial machinery.
Comments Mark Mills (Switches & Controls Sales Manager) at Cherry Electrical Products UK: “GP and E series general purpose devices will give Cherry the opportunity to grow our share of both the commercial and industrial markets, where a more heavy duty micro switch is required.  We will not only save customers money but also, as an established player in the switch market, we wil bring our service culture to these new opportunities.”
