New sealing cap from knitter-switch for slide switches

knitter-switch, one of Europe’s leading switch manufacturers, announces a new sealing cap for slide switches.

Slide switches - compared to push-button or toggle switches – cannot be sealed against environmental influences inside the switch. This new cap is to compensate this handicap. It is designed for devices used in polluted surroundings or mobile devices used in alternate environments.

The new ET MSSE1 sealing caps are accessories for the slide switch series MSSE 1, which has a wide range of professional and consumer applications. The cap protects the switch from dust and moisture.

The ET MSSE1 – as well as the complete wide range of standard DIL, tact, rotary encoder, toggle and push-button switches - is available directly from knitter-switch and a number of distributors throughout Europe. Samples are available on request. For more information visit
