Honeywell’s Micro Switch series is designed for use in household appliances and hazardous locations where flammable gasses may be present. The V15W2 Basic Switch is an explosion-proof-rated, snap-action, electromechanically sealed switch designed for applications such as commercial appliances, valves and actuators, commercial refrigeration, ice makers, and HVAC/R (furnace, refrigeration, and ventilation). In a typical household refrigerator, these switches can be used to control the production of ice in a freezer or turn on an interior light when the door is opened.
The independent component testing organization DEKRA has certified the switches with an explosion-proof rating in accordance with the International Electrotechnical Commission System for Certification to Standards Relating to Equipment for Use in Explosive Atmospheres (IECEx System). This is the first low-cost sealed switch to receive this explosion-proof rating globally.
Micro Switch components feature:
- An ambient temperature range of -25°C to +85°C
- 5A electrical rating
- A service life of more than 1 million mechanical actuations
- Gold contacts with low-energy circuits
- Quick-connect terminals
- Repeatable, consistent performance within a wide range of difficult environmental conditions
