Lorlin Electronics has introduced a waterproof version of its SRL series of key-operated miniature lock switches.

Manufactured at the Lorlin factory in the UK, the new WRL waterproof model is BSI tested for sealing to IP66 and IP67, with both SRL and WRL switch types offering single- or double-pole electrical contacts.

The SRL and WRL switches may be operated by a single common key or one of up to 200 different combinations.

Applications for the waterproof Lorlin WRL miniature key lock switch include vehicles, vending machines, torches, medical equipment, lasers, security shutters, alarm and security control panels in airports, prisons and police stations, factory equipment, instrumentation and electrical control panels.

Discussing the new WRL sealed key lock, Rob Peach, technical marketing manager for Lorlin Electronics, said: ‘This new product is the same form and fit as the existing SRL switch but has both external and internal seals to prevent water ingress.

‘It will withstand salt-spray exposure to severity 1 and has been tested to IP66 and IP67 by BSI,’ he added.

Requiring just a 16mm-diameter panel hole, the SRL/WRL lock switches are compact, simplifying panel layout by minimising panel size.

Mounted through the panel from the front, the switch assembly projects less than 30mm from the rear of the mounting panel.

An optional M16 Earthing tag may be specified where panels require insulation.

All SRL/WRL switches are RoHS compliant.

Both 60- and 90-degree key indexing versions are available and the key may be inserted into the lock either way up and withdrawn when the switch is on or off.

The SRL/WRL miniature lock switch is rated for currents up to 5A at 115VAC non-switched and has an operating temperature range of -20C to +65C.

The lock bezel may be specified finished in silver or black.
