In an industry first, the waterproof Digital System Switch features new Harken technology that sets the standard for the reliable operation of electrically-powered yacht systems.Control buttons send digital signals, not analog. This digital signal travels throughout the boat and cannot trigger an impulse, even if the wiring becomes damaged. The signal is converted back to analog using the supplied decoder mounted at the control box to start/stop the function.
Watertight seals are never exposed—even in ON position—eliminating potential damage from sun and prolonged use.
Underneath each control button are two command switches that must operate in unison before a signal will be sent.
To accomplish this, redundancies have been built into the system.
The covers on the switch rotate to expose the activation buttons: 1st/2nd gear for winches, up/down for anchors, in/out for furling. The dual-function controls work by pressing one of the two buttons housed in a single space-saving system. Selecting OFF conceals the control function and protects against accidental activation. Integrated lighting provides overnight visibility for additional usability.
Digital System Switches are impact-, wear-, and abrasion-resistant. Available in black polyamide resin or stainless steel. Double-sided adhesive mounting system for fast installation.
