NKK's JWLW series of snap-in mounted switches were specifically designed to conform to IP67 rating of IEC60529 standards for panel seal. JWLW rockers are dust-tight and protected against effects of temporary water immersion as deep as 15 cm. The housing and case are constructed with heat resistant resins meeting UL 94V-0 standards, and terminals are molded in and epoxy sealed to lock out flux, dust, and other contaminants. In addition, the electrical life of these switches is increased through the uniquely designed contact plate to minimize contact bounce. The prominent external insulating barriers between terminals increase insulation resistance and dielectric strength, and the combination solder lug/quick connect terminals help ease assembly.
JWLW Series switches are rated at 16 A at125/250 VAC, 5 A at 72 VDC for telecommunication applications and are cULus recognized. The JWLW series of switches have a TV-8 rating to handle high inrush current. Mechanical and electrical life is rated at 25,000 operations minimum. Insulation resistance is rated at 1,000 MΩ at 500 VDC. These devices are ideal for any design requiring a panel seal rocker for human interface in harsh environments, including industrial equipment, heavy machinery, transportation services, restaurant and medical equipment, and telecommunications devices.
