Plainville, CT--Earlier this week I was able to visit
Carlingswitch for a story we'll be doing in Design News on industry and
technology trends in switches and relays.
One product I found worth mentioning that the company makes for
its transportation and off-road customers is its recently expanded line of
L-Series Switches-sealed to IP67 requirements and able to operate from -40 to
85C. Latest additions to this rocker switch family include a rocker guard shroud
to prevent inadvertent actuation, a locking actuator, and a paddle actuator in
lens and laser-etched versions. Features include new hole plugs with
harness-connection capability, modular and solid mounting brackets, and options
for 12 terminals for switch and lamp circuits. The devices fit standard mounting
sizes of 1.734 x 0.867 mm or 22.1 x 44.1 mm, so no retooling is necessary.
