ZaGO switch boots: Sealing
when IP-67 isn’t worth its salt
February 10, 2011, Newark, NJ – ZaGO Manufacturing Company, Inc. –
announces the expansion of its line of sealing switch boots designed
to protect sealed switches where an IP-67 sealing rating is not
sufficient. ZaGO is manufacturing its sealing switch boots in
direct response to customer need.
Recently, a ZaGO customer prominent in the manufacture of navigation
instruments complained to ZaGO that although the pushbutton switch
it uses to operate its marine navigation system is sealed to IP-67,
the switch was malfunctioning because it was continually getting
gummed up with salt deposits. ZaGO immediately sized up the
situation, offering the ideal sealing solution with a custom
pushbutton boot. What the customer recognized was that simply
because a switch is labeled “sealed” it doesn’t mean it is sealed
sufficiently to actually protect the switch where it needs
protection most. What ZaGO supplied was a unique sealing solution.
specializes in designing economical, environmentally responsible
sealing solutions that will ensure the long lasting and dependable
operation of switches. ZaGO’s technical group is always available
to work alongside its customers’ engineers to create a unique design
to fit their specifications and ensure the highest quality product.
major manufacturers of switches and circuit breakers are
increasingly choosing ZaGO’s waterproof rubber boots not just for
their high quality and cost competitiveness, but also because ZaGO’s
switch covers have an excellent “feel” upon actuation, are durable
and dependable, and can be ordered in a wide variety of colors.
