Cyntech Components introduces new IP67/68 sealed industrial high-current butterfly-action microswitch from Microprecision

Cyntech Components, a specialist supplier of electro-mechanical components and power supplies, offers immediate availability of the new MP220 industrial high-current switch from Microprecision. This addition to the MP200 series provides a double pole, single throw configuration with butterfly-action, allowing for full isolation of electrical circuits rated up to 10A/250VAC.

The MP220 uses a fast snap action mechanism to change from break to make position. The standard version of the switch is sealed to IP67 standard for moisture and dust protection; a version offering improved IP68 sealing with a strengthened cable exit is also available for more demanding applications.

The switch comes in a standard micro switch size housing with a large range of possible actuators. Connection is by a 4-wire directly over-moulded cable in PVC, PUR or SI, depending on operating temperature requirements. The switch itself is rated for 10A/250VAC operation over -40°C to 130°C to EN61058 certification. UL certification to the new UL61058 standard is planned for the second half of 2013.

Dave Mellor, Cyntech Components’ managing director, commented, “As you would expect from a Swiss manufacturer, Microprecision offers high performance products of the highest quality. This latest MP220 adds to a range of standard, miniature and sub-miniature microswitches to provide a comprehensive choice for our customers”.
