NKK Switches' S Series of Locking Lever Toggle Switches Now Available

Series Provides Environmental Protection; Prevents Accidental Actuation

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwire - September 9, 2008) - NKK Switches, the world's leading designer and manufacturer of innovative electromechanical switching devices, announces the availability of the S Series of locking lever, medium capacity electromechanical toggle switches.

The S Series locking lever toggle switches are offered in single pole and double pole models, both with two or three maintained positions. They are available as single throw or double circuits and the electrical capacity ranges from 15A to 20A @ 125V AC.

The S Series lever toggle switches were designed with robust actuation applications in mind and provide an excellent choice for designs requiring a safeguard against accidental actuation. In addition, they provide equipment designers with high levels of environmental protection -- the switches are panel sealed with a rating of IP67.

Each S Series switch is panel mounted with 12mm D-flat threaded bushings, constructed of brass with chrome plating and conforms to standard panel cut outs. The D-flat shape prevents rotation of these devices when mounted in the panel. Standard hardware is provided with each switch and includes a hex nut, a lock washer and an O ring.
