MIL-Spec toggle switch.
Haverhill, MA — Apem Components, Inc. has been granted QPL certification for its 12000X778 series of professional grade toggle switches. This family of switches is especially suitable for use in military, aerospace, and industrial applications requiring high performance and extreme reliability.
The switch is QPL certified to MIL-DTL-3950G under M3950/15, M3950/16 and M3950/17, covering two-, three- and four-pole configurations.

This switch has a double shell case for superior mechanical strength and electrical insulation and a pinned lever for added strength and to ensure a strong electrical ground to the bushing. The toggle switch has a front panel sealing that meets IP67 specifications. According to the company, reliability and long life are obtained through electrical contacts made from gold plated, solid silver alloy rivets. The switch is suited for both low level applications (10mA at 50mV) and power applications (2A at 250VAC to 4A at 125VAC) with an electrical life of 20,000 to 150,000 cycles. The switch is available with both solder lug and printed circuit terminals, and all models have a rugged 15/32-in. mounting bushing. An optional locking lever actuator provides protection against non-deliberate actuation. The switch is also offered with an optional white fluorescent tip for visibility in low lighting environments.
