Sealed power toggle switches for wet environments

The new PT Series of sealed power toggle switches from C&K is now available from TTI. The multi-function PT Series has a patented single piece injection moulded panel and toggle seal designed to deliver optimum performance in harsh, dirty, dusty environments. Certification to the globally accepted UL 61058 standard means that no additional testing is required.

Applications for the new PT Series include off-road construction vehicles, agricultural vehicles and machinery, material handling equipment and outdoor industrial equipment. 

The PT Series has a IP66/IP68 versatile rating and can withstand intense and wet weather, as well as featuring a high-strength, heat-resistant housing for demanding applications subjected to vibration and harsh conditions. In addition, the PT Series offers superior resistance to oil and fuel in case of contact through spillage.

Materials used in the construction of the PT Series switches are rugged: cases are thermoset, actuators and pivot pins stainless steel, bushing is die cast zinc. The switches are suitable for operating and storage temperatures ranging between -40°C to +85°C. 

The PT Series is available in single and double pole versions. C&K’s Build-A-Switch facility enables customers to select from options from six types of switch function and the type of terminal required (quick connect brass terminals in .250” or screw terminals or solder terminals in silver-plated brass). 

Further applications for the PT Series include articulating, scissor and bucket lift controls and lift gate controls.
