Switches for marine use

A complete range of specialized switches and control systems for marine applications includes illuminated pushbuttons and indicators, keylocks, selector switches, joysticks, membrane controls, and emergency stops. They are suitable for navigation controls, bridge communication, lighting, passenger access, power distribution, and security.

Pushbuttons used on deck can be fitted with stainless-steel housings and covered with silicone covers for extra resistance to corrosion. IP65 and IP67-rated switches are available for applications requiring added protection against the penetration of water and other liquids. Various styles of sunlight-readable LED illumination provide easily recognizable warning signals or highly identifiable legends in dimly lit areas.
