Dual contact blocks are IP67 rated
IDEC's dual contact blocks are IP67 rated and allow a user up to six contacts and extend 59.9 mm behind the panel.
IDEC's dual contact blocks allow a user up to six contacts from one CW operator. These dual contact blocks only extend 59.9 mm behind the panel, making CW switches ideal for applications where panel space is limited. And with a Type 4X rating, CW switches are ideal for wash down environments. The smooth design of the CW cuts down on surface area, preventing dust and other particles from accumulating and making regular cleaning and maintenance easier. The CW switches are designed for instrumentation, medical equipment, food and beverage processing equipment, semi-conductor equipment, non-industrial applications (train cab, parking machines, audio/visual equipment), machine tools, panels, outdoor applications and more. CW switches are UL listed and CE marked, as well as providing up to an IP67 degree of protection.
