Honeywell Micro Switch TL series is now available from Aerco

Honeywell Micro Switch TL series toggle switches are designed for demanding mil/aero applications and are now available from distributor, Aerco.

The Micro Switch TL series toggle switches are qualified to MIL-DTL-3950 and environmentally sealed for long life.

Aerco specialises in the distribution and stocking of electrical and electronic components servicing hi-rel markets. The switches are sealed to MIL-DTL-3950 and can be specified for indoor or outdoor applications that are subject to shock, vibration, dust, splashing or hose-directed water. The robust and durable, Micro Switch TL series switches suit military, aerospace and other demanding environment applications where reliability is critical. The switches are available in a variety of circuitry and pole options.

The toggle switches feature a bonded seal between the toggle lever and brushing and between the cover and the case, ensuring environmental sealing and delivering a long operating life under extreme conditions, says Aerco. Operating temperature range for the Micro Switch TL series toggle switches is -65 to +71 degree C. A number of operating actions are available in the Honeywell TL series, including two- and three- position, maintained and momentary toggle action. In addition to standard or tab actuators, Aerco points out that special designs can be specified. For extra safety and security and to avoid unintentional actuation, the TL series is also available with optional lever locks (pull-to-unlock), so two separate actions are required to operate the switch.

Available in one, two and four-pole options, (SPST, SPDT, DPST, DPDT, 4PST, 4PDT), the TL series toggle switches meet a variety of circuitry requirements.  They have AC and DC capability and are rated up to 20A. The TL series toggle switches also offer a choice of silver alloy or gold-plated contacts. The toggle switches also handle a variety of electrical load requirements, including low-voltage DC applications. The TL series switches have innovative step design cases, which provide additional space between terminals to prevent shorting.  Popular termination options are available, including screw, solder lugs, quick-connect, leadwire and integrated wire termination systems (IWTS).

In addition to being constructed from military-grade components, the TL series is UL-recognised, CSA-certified and CE-approved. The Honeywell Micro Switch TL series toggle switches are supplied to applications in military and commercial aircraft and helicopters. They are also found in aviation ground support equipment, tracked and wheeled military vehicles and construction equipment.  Applications include switching on/off pumps and lights; movement control of lift platforms and ramps; control of road pavers, trenchers, stump cutters and many others.
