Develop a water resistant safety button for a modular direct-current switch which will be used in solar installations.
Santon is market leader in electro-mechanical switch technology. MMID developed in cooperation with Santon different products, including a safety button for a modular direct-current switch that is used, among other things, in solar panel installations. Service mechanics who work in such situations must be able to do so safely at all times. This is why the button provides the possibility of locking it with a padlock in the disconnected position. The lockability is only one of the requirements that the button must meet. Others include impermeability to water, user-friendliness and resistance to improper use and vandalism. MMID translated this complex mix of demands into an elegant, compact button that is suitable for various applications.
