Microprecision MP500 Series
The MP500 series subminiature micro switch sets itself apart from other products on the market in terms of its mechanical service life, choice of materials, and standardized small dimensions. ESCS offers the MP500 to those requiring a switch that resists temperatures up to 105 Ã¸C or 221Ã¸F. We also offer the MP550 model which is great for appliances and rated at IP40 for those who do not require a high degree of protection.
The entire MP500 family is now certified under UL and ENEC for up to 5A/250 VAC. which replaces the UL 1054 certification. The MP500 series meets the new harmonized standard UL 61058-1 for appliance switches. For low-current switching applications in humid environments, ESCS recommends the gold contacts that are available to protect against contact oxidation. The switch is available in a cable version as well, and can also be ordered with PCB or solder pins. In its standard configuration, the switch uses a PVC cable. Upon request, other cables or wires may be used as custom solutions. Contact your ESCS representative for MP500 details.
