Honeywell MICRO SWITCH™ NT Series toggle switches

NT_email4 copy

Honeywell MICRO SWITCH™ NT Series toggle switches meet the need for a rugged, cost-effective toggle switch. Quality construction features include a seal between the toggle lever and bushing, and between the cover and case. These switches are suitable for applications in many demanding outdoor environments, where the panels are subjected to vibration from equipment, temperature extremes, dust, splashing water, and/or hose directed water. They are also capable of withstanding exposure to heavy accumulations of early morning dew that may condense on the control panel in cabs of vehicles left outdoors overnight.

These toggle switches are available in both step-base and flat-base styles and offer three popular styles of termination: 6-32 screws, solder lugs with 3,0 mm [0.12 in] diameter hole, or 6,35 mm [0.25 in] quick connect terminals.

Potential Applications:

  • Aerial platform lifts
  • Agricultural Machinery
  • Construction Equipment
  • Industrial equipment

Honeywell’s SNG-Q Series


Honeywell’s SNG-Q Series Quadrature Speed and Direction Sensor with 4-wire quadrature sensing is the first release of the new SNG-Q Series Speed Sensor Platform. The sensor design and manufacturing use a platform-based approach that enables cost competitiveness and mechanical and electrical configurability.

The SNG-Q Series provides both speed and direction information. Speed information is provided from digital square wave outputs; direction is provided using a quadrature output with signals 90° phase shifted from each other. With the quadrature output, target direction is determined by output lead/lag phase shifting.

The SNG-Q Series is designed for applications where enhanced accuracy is required to detect small target features. This accuracy is enabled by dual differential Hall-effect sensor IC technology. It is designed for a wide operating temperature range, robust electrical noise immunity and industry leading environmental sealing capability.
