A company has developed a series of watertight miniature switches. The V15W series, an expansion of the company's Micro Switch Basic Switch line, is designed for a range of high-current applications for which spillage of water could be a factor, including in medical equipment such as hospital beds, dental chairs, and foot pedals. The switches have an IP67 waterproof seal rating and are the only V-switches in the industry rated up to 10 A, according to the company. They are fully configurable and include a variety of actuators, terminals, and electrical and operating characteristics. They are available in three versions: sealed plunger, dust-tight, and pre-leaded. They also feature single pole double throw (SPDT) circuitry.
