Honeywell NT Toggle Switch

Honeywell_NT_switches

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 vibrations from equipment. temperature extremes, dust, splashing water, and/or hose directed water.

They are 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.  the NT toggle switches with larger standard metal or plastic levers are well suited for gloved-hand operation.

Available in both step-base and flat-base styles, the NT Series offers three popular styles of termination: 6-32 screw, solder lugs with 3,0 mm [0.12 in] diameter hole, or 6,35 mm [0.25 in] quick connect terminals.

The optional “Easy Start” threaded bushing enables quick alignment of the mounting nut minimize any cross threading.  The panel stand-off with O-ring feature available on some listings eliminates the need for behind-the-panel hardware, provides a uniform panel height, and panel-to-cover seal.

Features:

  • NEMA 3, 3R, 4, 13 and IP67/68 environmental sealing for demanding applications
  • UL recognized, CSA certified, and CE certified for global use
  • 1-, 2-, and 4-pole options to meet a variety of circuitry requirements
  • 2- or 3-position maintained and momentary action to meet circuit and actuator requirements
  • Optional step-case design provides added space between terminals to prevent shorting

Flat Flexible Cable Assemblies

Also known as Flexible Flat conductor Cable, this product is lightweight, low profile, small outline cable designed to satisfy high density cabling applications. It excels in applications that cause the cable to be flexed repeatedly. FFC Cable can be folded into shapes as needed. Flat Flexible Cable is designed for high cycle life applications as well as for board-to-board jumpers. Flat Flexible Cables are available in a variety of pitches and jackets to fit a broad spectrum of applications.

Value Add Customization and Wire Harness Assembly

Gopher Electronics will assemble and customize a large variety of components to simplify your ordering and logistics. These integrated assemblies can combine single or multiple components to many cable and connector combinations. This allows for easier installation of the desired sub-assembly directly to your application.

Instead of adding the wire and connectors to the component on your shop floor, Gopher Custom Solutions can help.  We can build this sub-assembly at our facility in St. Paul, MN and deliver an assembled part to your factory floor, released upon demand.  This reduces labor and inventory from your process, allowing for purchasing a single part number for the entire assembly.

Panel Build and DIN Rail Assemblies

Gopher Custom Solutions (GCS) provides custom Panel Builds and DIN Rail Assemblies. Purchasing a complete DIN Rail Assembly or Panel Assembly allows for maintenance of only one part number, eliminating multiple purchasing lanes.

GCS will build from your prints and specifications.  Gopher Electronics is a stocking distributor; components are purchased and stocked on site, decreasing material pricing and turnaround time of the assemblies.  Utilize Gopher Electronics’ experience in lean manufacturing and quality workmanship to produce your custom DIN Rail or Panel Assembly today.
