Heavy Duty Switches and Electrical Products
Battery master switches shut down a vehicle’s electrical system by cutting off current from the battery. They are designed to help prevent tampering, theft, battery drain and electrical fires.
Battery master switches are available with brass or plated steel cases and are actuated by lever or hencol key. Contacts are either silver or copper. O-rings feature in the operating shaft of some models for additional moisture and dirt protection.
Rocker switches are manufactured in many different variations to handle most vehicle and equipment applications and are usually classified by the number of poles and throws to identify their basic operation.
Rocker switches can be either snap-in or bracket mounting, actuators can be illuminated or imprinted, contain pilot lights, or have both pilot lights and imprinting.
Toggle switches are manufactured in many different variations to handle most vehicle and equipment applications. Toggle switches are usually classified by the number of poles and throws to identify their basic operation.
Toggle switches are available with ball, short or long handles, paddle or illuminated actuators. Housings are either plastic, plastic and metal combined, or die-cast metal.
Rotary switches are usually used for special purpose applications including headlamp and windscreen wiper operation. The Cole Hersee range features models which can be used for more common applications.
Cole Hersee Rotary switches are available in die-cast alloy or nylon housing with most featuring a nylon knob to fit in with your existing vehicle interior.
Ignition switches are operated by a coded key and tumbler lock, hencol keyed lock or lever. Lever design is available in three different configurations: short, long and military. Ignition switches are available with coded cylinder locks and keys or hencol non-tumbler locks with compatible keys.
Switches are available with a grounded case design with a separate ground terminal. A grounded case switch must be installed in a metal panel which is part of the vehicle earthing system. In non-grounded panels, select a switch with an earth terminal.
In an engine starting system, the ignition switch in the start position may have a rating of 5 amps whilst the starter motor may have a cranking requirement of 200 to 350 amps.
Once energised by the ignition switch, the solenoid coil moves the high current capacity contact to a closed position, thereby energising the starter motor.
Cole Hersee circuit breakers and compatible mounting brackets are designed and engineered for responsive performance over a long period. Casings are manufactured from either high quality plated steel or durable plastic. Mounting brackets are available in heavy gauge steel or lightweight moulded plastic.
