Schurter Ckt. Breakers Add Features

Various standard and customer specific legends are available options.

Esthetic features include a stylish rocker switch now offered in five bright illuminated colors, including the popular blue, for a total of ten rocker colors.

The series also offers a "dead man switch", whereby the switch remains ON, while the actuator is depressed, and turns OFF when released. This switch type is particularly useful in equipment such as electric lawn mowers, floor sanders, and electric hand tools where danger of injury exists and in applications such as truck lifts where a specific elevation is desired. An optional protective cover provides a protection class of IP 65, for applications exposed to dust or splashing water, such as medical laboratory equipment, wood and masonry processing machines, construction site equipment, power generators, food processing equipment and appliances. The TA35 is designed with efficient snap-in mounting to fit panel thicknesses ranging from 1 to 4mm with 6.3 x 0.8mm quick connect terminals. It combines switching and thermal overload protection over a current range of 0.05 to 20A for 1- and 2-pole types, and
