Title: Smallish, Waterproof Panel-Mount Switches
Post by: bullet308 on July 28, 2012, 05:56:08 pm
Hi:

In a related question to my lithium battery ventilation one, I am looking for (and not particularly finding at Mouser et all) small (1/8" / 3mm diameter) waterproof (IP67/68 or equivalent) on/off switches. Anybody have a line on any that are less than a half-inch (13mm) in diameter, at least?

TIA

The right concept, but a little too large.  :-/

About 6mm is as large as I can work with.

By way of update, I am having much better luck at Newark/Element 14 (US):
