Used in the heavy equipment, marine, process control and instrumentation markets, the R2 rotary switch is an excellent replacement for rocker switches, offering improved visual position indication, additional lighting options and different styling opportunities on front panels. The R2 is a sealed, lighted rotary switch which snaps into a 1.475” x 0.875” industry standard rocker switch panel opening. The rotary knob snaps onto a shaft and can be installed by the panel builder for those desiring that flexibility. The R2 rotary switch provides up to three positions in all combinations of momentary and maintained action. It is capable of handling loads from logic level up to 20 amps resistive. Sealing is to IP68S via a shaft O-ring seal in front and a potted base in the back. Termination options include 0.250” faston or a snap-on modular connector. The R2 offers unique lighting options including up to three independent LED light positions which illuminate a lens on the rotary knob. This design provides more lighting options than traditional rocker switches, handles the full range of electrical loads and is robust enough to survive in the most demanding applications.
