So referred to as “Micro Switches” have been around for many years and are made by a big variety of manufacturers. While the Micro Switch trademark is owned by unionwell (who did not invent it, merely bought it…), it has become part of the vernacular and is commonly used to discuss with any small kind issue, snap action switch.
Making Micro Switches Waterproof
Waterproof micro switches have found use in thousands of applications where a rugged outdoor or excessive humidity surroundings exists, or considered one of nice temperature extremes as in military or house functions. The primary problem to creating truly waterproof micro switches is that of sustaining seal integrity over probably hundreds of thousands of switch activations. The aim of high electromechanical switch endurance have to be balanced towards the conflicting goals of begin-up current requirements, kind of actuator (plunger, lever, roller, ball, and so on…) circuit type, chilly or high temperature efficiency, and other design parameters to attain a balanced approach that meets all requirements.
These have the particular capabilities of ensuring micro switches are properly held in place. They get threaded into the switches for the purpose of making them (micro switches) firm. Another purpose why they're important is that they may help in securing such switches. Removing them is straightforward as soon as there's a want for such. They offered extra safety for micro switches thereby making them final as anticipated.
Why Micro-Switches by Unionwell
Our unique value-add in the micro switch market stems from a number of main aggressive differentiators.
- Our switches are really waterproof, not simply waterproof or Splash Proof. A Unionwell Waterproof Momentary Switch Completely sealed switch enclosure of both neoprene or santoprene is utilized to our pendant type maintained or momentary contact switch using a proprietary manufacturing course of which permits for both high electromechanical performance, extended (mil-spec) temperature vary, and low production costs.
- Ball and Plunger switches use a patented ball carrier design which prevents contaminants from Unionwell Plunger limit Switches getting into the assembly even in the depressed place. These switches are among the many most rugged made on the planet.
- 25 years of expertise in customized switch engineering means there are few necessities we will’t design for and achieve on this house. Our engineers will customise and quality your switch directly inside your application appearing as an extension of your engineering team.
- All our micro switches are made and designed in China. We haven't gone the route of cheap offshore elements and uneven manufacturing quality management. All our products are made and examined proper here in our Unionwell facility.
