General DPN

NKK Switches has introduced the JWLW series of panel seal, high capacity rocker switches, as an expansion of its existing JW rocker series. The JWLW series of snap-in mounted switches were 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 to 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

Design engineers can configure circuits in DPST or
DPDT. All single throw models can be ordered with the international
inscriptions for ON/OFF and these can be specified in vertical or
horizontal orientation to accommodate placement in the panel. Custom
legends are also available. Actuators are available in red or black.

series switches are rated at 16 A at 125/250 Vac, 5 A at 72 Vdc for
telecommunication applications and are cULus recognized. The switches
have a TV-8 rating and a mechanical and electrical life rated at 25,000
operations minimum. Insulation resistance is rated at 1 Gohm at 500 Vdc.
