The P-Type Switch Disconnect

The P-Type Switch, also known as the Santon switch, is a robust switch which is typically useful in dusty environments, in environments where shocks can occur (trains, earth quake or explosions) and designed for switching of DC currents. 

The P-Type Switch is used in many industries and has proven itself to be one of the best switches on the market.

Because of it's modular design the switch can meet practically any customer specific demand.

The P-Type Switch is available in a range of enclosures and can be used in many different environments.

The C-Type Switch Disconnect

Our cam switches, just as our packet switches, are designed to high quality (Santon) standards.

The switch cells compromise top quality thermohardened melamine with excellent resistance to creepage current and arcing.


The double break contacts are coated with a silver alloy and the other components are selected with equal care. 

The sturdy design forms the basis for a range of well dimensioned, almost everlasting switches.
