Product of the Week: The LED ringed switch


'LED ringed switches'    .

There can be few things more valuable on a boat than being able to turn equipment on and off without the necessity to turn on a light - which may wake sleeping crew or destroy your night vision. That's where this week's Product of the Week, comes in, the LED-ringed switch.

Yes, the evolution of LED technology has expanded its applications to ever smaller devices, even, now, to marine switches. These LED-ringed switches from New Zealand-based Hella Marine even look cool! They are also stainless steel, so built for the marine environment.

A bright red or blue LED ring surrounds each Hella marine push button switch, which measures approximately 25.2mm across.

Made from 304 stainless steel, the panel switches are not only great for finding the switch in the dark, they also serve a variety of interior and exterior applications, such as controlling and dimming lights or operating accessories. They can also be installed into custom switch panels, or wired to signal circuit activation or indicate power to a system.

These IP67 rated switches are built to withstand the toughest conditions with quality features such as five pin terminals and silver alloy contacts. They proved their worth aboard the last generation of Volvo Ocean Race craft.

Despite maximum exposure to the elements in the racing yachts' steering pedestals, they performed admirably during the grueling year-long competition. The switches can operate in temperatures from -200º C to over 550º C.

Able to be mounted in panels approximately 1 to 10mm thick, Hella marine switches include models with latching or momentary functions, for 12 or 24V power.

Matching IP50 rated stainless steel through-panel mount warning buzzers, equipped with red LED light rings, are also available.

Hella marine stainless steel LED switches are covered by a one-year warranty.

If these switches are not available at your local marine store, contact either of the following:
