Jul,04 2012 at 1:17 PM




The New Switch Series 3250 for Off-Road Vehicles

[RIETHEIM-WEILHEIM] MARQUARDT, the manufacturer of switches and switching systems, is launching a new rocker switch series. This series is especially designed for application in Off-Road Vehicles. With the IP 66 and IP 68 environmental protection it is designed for use in harsh surroundings. The unique snap action switching concept is superior to the competition and already millions of times approved within the automotive industry.
The new rocker switch series 3250 impresses with its robust technology. With its high dust- and water protection (up to IP 66 and IP 68) it is very well situated in harsh environments. The switch is equipped with up to two independent snap action switching systems. The contacts perform a relative movement during the switching process. Due to this, the contacts are self cleaning or even will break light weldings.
With its wide range of performance, from signal loads from as low as 0,5 mA up to 20 A at 12 VDC or 24VDC the new switch is appropriate for all kind of applications in a vehicle cabin for example lamps, window lifter, all type of fans or blowers or servo motors. The high life endurance of more than 500.000 mechanical actuations is a further proof for the high reliability.
All required switching functions are feasible for the new switch. Up to four integrated LEDs allow an individual combination of background and function illumination. Thanks to painting in different colours and laser etching of different symbols of the variable rocker cap, an attractive and individual design can be realized. Special features like the locking function that avoids accidental actuation of critical functions and accessories like multiple assembly frames, indication lamps and hole plugs in switch design, as well as connectors and timers complete the portfolio.
For easy and clear handling of the variety of all combination possibilities you can find the product configurator for the MARQUARDT switch series 3250 under The entire product features can explicitly and quickly be defined. In addition a data sheet, conform to each configuration, can be generated. In a further step all the generated configurations can be directly inquired. Within a short time an individual quotation to the switch selection will be generated.
Decades of experience within the automotive industry makes the new MARQUARDT product series 3250 the right solution for your application.
