Pleasant Prairie, WI (PRWEB) January 25, 2006
Cherry introduces a new version of its GP Series precision snap-action switch with UL current ratings of 20 amps at 125VAC and mechanical endurance of more than 1 million cycles. These precision switches are ideally suited for heavy-duty commercial and industrial applications such as factory automation, industrial vehicles, elevators and valves.
The Cherry GP Series switch employs a beryllium copper spring and heavy-duty silver contacts to provide long-life switching at a wide variety of loads. Horsepower ratings are 1 HP at 125VAC and 2 HP at 250VAC. Previous versions of the GP Series switch were UL-rated to 15 amps.
The GP Series switch is housed in a phenolic case measuring approximately 1.9”L X 0.9”H X 0.7”W. Cherry offers 13 different standard actuator styles, including nickel-plated steel levers, rollers and buttons. Brass screw terminals and copper alloy solder terminals are standard.
Temperature rating is -20C to +85C. Initial contact resistance is .015 ohms max, and insulation resistance is 100 mega ohms min at 500VDC.
Cherry’s new GP Series snap-action switches are available from stock.
