IP67 Micro switch for automotive applications

Micro switch Z series

The Micro switch Z series standard subminiature snap-action switches are designed for applications that require sensing the presence or absence of an object. For customers who need a switching solution to meet performance and design expectations, Honeywell's Micro switch Z series offers product configurations at a great value.

ZD series – watertight with an IP67 rating, offers water tightness due to its lead wires; plunger travel can be restricted and offers a side-post quick mounting. Often used in automotive applications due to its sealing ability and quick mounting option.

ZW series – with an IP67 rating, offers water tightness due to its lead wires, as well as a snap-on lever, coil spring, and ENEC rating. Engineered to be used when a sealed position switch in a cost-effective package is required.

Value to customer

  • Value – the right switch for a specified application at a competitive price. Honeywell matches product performance with customer design expectations.
  • Customisation – a wide variety of actuators, terminations, wire connections, operating and electrical characteristics result in thousands of potential configurations.
  • Reliable – exceeding UL and other agency requirements with repeatability and consistent performance within a range of conditions.
  • Environmental protection – able to operate under difficult environmental conditions (ZW and ZD series are sealed with an IP67 rating).

Key features and benefits

  • Small size and light weight switches lend themselves to numerous potential applications.
  • Choice of low energy or power-duty electrical ratings allows the switch to be specified in more types of applications.
  • Broad range of amp ratings (from 0.1 A to 10.1 A).
  • Watertight IP67 sealing available on some listings allows the switch to be used where sealing and presence/absence detection is required.
  • UL/CSA, cUL, ENEC, and CE approvals.

Potential applications

For use in applications where a pre-wired sealed on/off switch is required.

Medical – medical and hospital beds, foot pedal controls, and chair lifts.

Industrial – appliances, communication equipment, computers, electromechanical timers, mechanical cam assemblies (timers), office equipment, electric tools, HVAC wall controls, instrumentation, valves, vending machines.

Transportation – automotive, truck, and boat wire harnesses; sub-assemblies for convertible roofs; lock modules for tail-gate/trunk; tank and hood latch detection.
