Research & development

Santon’s approach requires an extremely high level of technical knowledge and organizational flexibility. With its own production plant of over 10,000 square meters and an in-house research and development department with experienced and highly trained professionals in the Netherlands, Santon can deal with the biggest challenges.

With also sales in the Benelux, UK, Germany, Spain and the United States, and with many partners throughout the world, Santon is always in close contact with its end-users, which is one of Santon’s key principles.
For the production of the Santon switch the most modern manufacturing processes and the most advanced materials are used.

The “Santon” switch utilizes clip and blade self cleaning wiping action contacts. Because of this technique the switch is shock and vibration proof, perfectly suited for traction applications, where reliable contact continuity is paramount.
