Lippstadt, 04 April 2013. HELLA, the electronics expert, is presenting its new, waterproof series of modular switches for electric systems at the bauma in Munich from April 15-21, 2013 (Hall A5, Stand 426). The new products of the 3100 series meet the requirements of the protection class IP 68 (water impermeability) and are, therefore, highly suitable for use in agricultural and construction vehicles. The modular switches adopt a wide range of switch functions: making contact, changeover contact, blocking function, hazard light switch, etc. In addition, there are more than 500 standard and customer-specific laser symbols available. The individual modular switches are optimally illuminated by the use of up to two LED light sources. Suitable products for the 12 and 24 volt vehicle electric system voltage can be installed directly in the installation opening provided. Alternatively, the switches can also be installed using a modular installation frame.
Moreover, switches of the 3100 and 4100 series can be individually configured via the HELLA switch configurator. In addition to different switch functions and symbols, the corresponding accessories and the operating voltage can be selected with only a few clicks. The watch list enables the switch generated to be saved. An online enquiry can also be sent directly to HELLA. The switch configurator is available at www.hella.com/switch.
