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.
To accomplish this, redundancies have been built into the system.
• Control buttons send on/off digital signals, rather than non-stop analog signals, preventing accidental system activation—even if system wiring is damaged.
• Underneath each control button are two command switches which must operate in unison before a signal is sent.
• Watertight seals are never exposed-even in the ON position-eliminating damage—caused by sun and prolonged use.
• To make sail trim easy at night, control buttons feature high-contrast arrows or numbers and are backlit for around-the-clock visibility.
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. Double-sided adhesive mounting system for fast installation.
