CW Industries, founded in 1904 by Charles Wirt, an associate of Thomas Alva Edison, is your source for slide, rocker and pushbutton switches, insulation displacement connectors, and assemblies. From miniature to full-sized switches, CW Industries offers a comprehensive line of high-quality, attractively styled, and competitively priced rocker switches. Rated up to 20A @ 277 VAC in circuitries ranging from SPST through DPDT, the switches are available in center-off, spring-return, and illuminated versions, as well as in a variety of color, marking, and termination options. The patented unique contact sliding and rotating action ensures contact cleanliness and extended life. Also available are IP67 Sealed Rocker Switches for protection against solid objects, materials, liquids, or dust. All CW Industries' rocker switches are RoHS compliant and agency approvals include UL, CSA, VDE, and ENEC.
CW Industries has a long history of uncompromising craftsmanship and dedication to developing and manufacturing the best products - quickly, reliably, and cost effectively.
CW Industries new GRB Series IP68 Sealed Rocker Switches were designed for harsh environment applications. The non-illuminated GRB Series IP68 Sealed Rocker Switches from CW offer 25A 12Vdc rating and operating temperature range from -25ºC to 85ºC. Other GRB specifications include black actuator color and gray housing color, maximum contact resistance of 20m OHM Max (initial), mechanical life >100,000 cycles, and RoHS compliance.
CW Industries GC-509 Sequencing Rocker Switch is a DPDT 3-position switch that sequentially makes or breaks electrical circuits in alternate poles. Designed for momentary power applications, the switch is rated at 3 Amps, 125V AC. It features one pole that maintains contact in two positions and the other pole that acts as a power disconnect switch. Supplying power to a primary load with the capability to supply momentary power to secondary loads, this switch is suitable for applications such as fluorescent lighting, ice makers, white goods, and industrial controls.
CW Industries GRS-4121 Miniature Rocker Switch is a power switch rated at 8A @ 250 VAC. This switch is VDE approved for use in products sold in Europe that have contact gaps greater than 3mm. GRS-4121 is ideal for applications in the appliance, lawn and garden, floor care, and medical markets. Compliance with the 850ºC Glow-Wire Test for insulating material makes the switch suitable for applications requiring higher heat resistance.
CW Industries' Microminiature Slide Switches have electrical contacts completely enclosed by insulating plastic for protection from hostile environments. The Microminiature Slide Switches from CW Industries are available in "Snap-In" or "Plug-In" mounting options, neither of which requires mounting hardware. These switches are ideal for applications where there is very little space, yet switching reliability and protection from hostile environments are required. CW's patented detent method makes a light actuating force and crisp detent action possible. This switch type allows easy termination through plugging into a PC board, hand soldering to properly shaped terminal tails, or by using a standard solderless connector. Typical applications for microminiature slide switches are electric shavers and similar motor-driven appliances and computer and telecommunications equipment containing crowded PC boards.
CW Industries' heavy-duty Power Slide Switches open up higher current devices to the use of the popular slide switch platform. CW Industries offers the following options for heavy-duty Power Slide Switches: SPST or SPDT circuitry, traditional metal or fully-enclosed plastic construction, and snap-in or chassis mount styles. These switches are compact, easy to install, easy to use, and have a rating up to 16 Amps, making them an ideal alternative to expensive high-current industrial switches.
Miniature Rocker Indicon switches from CW Industries feature high current switching, crisp detent action, and self-cleaning contacts. Contact resistance of <.01@10mA, 65°C max operating temperature, 16A @ 125VAC rating, and .187" terminals.
