Cherry Electrical Products has released three ranges of waterproof rocker-switches that 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 such as 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 a diverse range of applications.

All three ranges are rated to IP56 against water ingress or dust and are approved under UL and VDE.

The KG series includes one single-pole, single-throw (SPST) switch, (on-off); two SPDT (on-on and on-off-on); and one DPDT version (on-off-on), all with black actuators and frames, designed with snap-in mountings to fit panel cut-outs of 1.449 x 0.835in (36.80 x 21.20mm).

Electrical ratings are: 21A 14V DC and two UL1054 rated versions: 20A 125V AC and 10A 250V AC.

These switches are temperature rated from -20C to +85C and have a mechanical life of 100,000 cycles.

These switches are robust enough to withstand repeated use in tough environments.

The KM range of waterproof rocker switches is available as single pole (single throw), single pole (double throw) and two double-pole versions, (with single or double throw).

The range is available lighted and non-lighted.

The actuator and housing are both black, with red or green lenses for lighted versions.

Electrical ratings are 20A 125V AC, 10A 250V AC and 21A 14V DC, with a dielectric strength of 1500 V AC for one minute.

KT series SPST and SPDT switches are oblong with black oblong actuators and are designed for easy snap-in mounting on panel cut-outs of 1.454 x 0.602in (36.80 x 15.20mm).

Both lighted and non-lighted versions are available.

Electrical ratings are: 21A 14V DC; an EN61058-rated 10(4)A 250V version; and two UL1054 rated switches: 20A 125V AC, 1/3HP; and 10A 250V AC, 3/4HP.
