Weather-resistant switch provides added safety for boat operators. The lanyard connects the boater to a switch which kills the ignition circuit if the boater falls overboard, or is at an unsafe distance from the controls, thus preventing a dangerous runaway situation. Unlike other devices, this switch can be turned on again if need be by a boater other than the operator. Switch can be installed either in boat systems that require a grounded emergency stop, or in systems that have an open circuit emergency stop. The switch works on virtually any powerboat with an inboard or outboard motor. Full wiring instructions are included. For safety, this switch should only be installed by a technically competent person.
Switch housing dimensions 2 3/4" x 2" (69.9 x 50.8mm) requires a space of 1/2" (12.7mm) behind the panel, and mounts in a 1 1/2" (38.1mm) diameter hole. Rubber coated toggle switch is sealed to IP-66 to protect against salt spray and water ingress. Strong self-retracting coiled lanyard has a clip for attachment to the operator. 10A at 12-24V DC.
For safety or lifesaving applications, the switch should be installed by a qualified individual. User assumes all responsibility for determining the suitability of this product for his application.
