Environmental Sealing Boots for Switches & Potentiometers

APM HEXSEAL

Why Environmental Protection Is Needed

I

n many applications ordinary electrical and/or electronic switches and potentiometers are susceptible to damage from water, oil, dust, dirt, salt spray, fungus and other environmental contaminants. Often, even factory-sealed, panel-mounted switches and potentiometers do not protect behind-panel circuitry from the entry of such hostile contaminants through the panel cutout in which the component is mounted. When reliability and survival in such hazardous environments is required, APM HEXSEAL's broad range of environmental sealing boots provide cost-effective, longterm protection.

HOW APM'S SEALING BOOTS PROTECT APM's sealing boots are designed to protect your switches and potentiometers from hostile environments without compromising, or interfering with, the unit's basic operation. Each seal is made from tough, high tear-strength elastomer resistant to most chemicals, lubricants, acids and solvents. Standard colors are black and grey. Boots can be color-matched to panel/function coding.

through the switch mounting hole. Armored toggle and pushbutton switch seals are also available for those instances where severe mechanical abuse is anticipated. Millions in Use. APM HEXSEAL's environmental sealing boots represent more than 50 years of research and product development. Working closely with both switch users and manufacturers, APM has developed an extensive family of standard and custom boots for toggle, pushbutton, rocker and rotary switches. Today APM's environmental seals are used around the world in a wide variety of industrial, commercial, and military applications. We would be pleased to help you select a standard unit, or discuss a custom design to satisfy your unique application needs. Custom Designs. Should your requirement call for boots not shown in this catalog, please contact us for design assistance. The solution often lies in an inexpensive variation of a standard product.

And each remains flexible over a wide operating temperature range ... with many units rated at ­94°F to +400°F. Most toggle, pushbutton and rotary shaft models feature a molded-in mounting nut, thus serving as both a reliable seal and mechanical mounting. In addition each HEXSEAL® and E-SEEL® features an integral proprietary sealing rib which serves to seal the panel cutout in which the component is mounted ... thus protecting behind-panel circuitry from leakage or blow-by. Full toggle, pushbutton and rocker switch boots completely envelop the front-of-panel switch mechanism, providing reliable protection even under high-pressure washdowns. Rotary shaft and half toggle/pushbutton seals (in which the actuator protrudes) are designed to snugly hug the actuator to protect against entry of moisture, oil, dirt, dust, and other contaminants. EMI/RFI and Armored Protection. For EMC-sensitive applications, APM offers a number of boots with a built-in, knitted Monel EMI/RFI shield. This integral shield guards against spurious signals entering or leaving equipment

All standard EMI/RFI boots feature a knitted Monel shield

SPECIFICATIONS

Material: Boot: Neoprene. Color: Black (other materials and colors available on special order.) Temperature Range: ­65°F to +300°F Shelf Life: 2 years. Mounting Nut: Aluminum (see table below) Installation: A. Mount the switch using SNAPSEEL shouldered mounting nut. B. Press SNAPSEEL over switch actuator and snap over nut.

SNAPSEELS® combine economy with performance for more moderate temperature conditions and lower-demand commercial-grade applications. Each consists of a molded neoprene boot which snaps over a specially designed shouldered mounting nut. These inexpensive boots are an ideal way to protect switches and potentiometers against dust, dirt, grease and moderate amounts of moisture.

HOW TO ORDER

Select boot to fit switch type and dimensions. Choose shouldered mounting nut to mate with selected boot. SEE TABLE BELOW FOR SHOULDERED MOUNTING NUT OPTION. For example: When ordering a pushbutton boot PN 1211/10, also order its companion shouldered mounting nut P/N 2120/122/1.

For proper installation of these boots, follow these five sequential steps. It is EXTREMELY IMPORTANT that the number of threads on the switch/potentiometer bushing EXPOSED ABOVE THE FRONT PANEL SURFACE be within the recommendation (see chart above). Failure to respect these maximums may result in boot damage (such as tearing). STEP 1. Remove front mounting nut from switch bushing. STEP 2. Put threaded bushing through panel. STEP 3. Adjust back-up nut to allow the specified number of threads to protrude past front of panel (see Dimension "A" above). STEP 4. If needed, install appropriate bushing adaptor. STEP 5. Install switch boot in place of front mounting nut.

Custom Switch Boots & Seals...

APM HEXSEAL tailors special boots for special needs. If your application requires boots not shown in this catalog, please call us for custom design assistance. Your need may be satisfied by an inexpensive variation of a standard product or mold. Whether your application calls for custom colors, other bushing/bezel sizes, alternative boot materials or a totally custom design, let us know. We have satisfied diverse requirements including full seals for an array of switches, transparent panel meter boots, and electronic connector seals.

Pick a Shape ... Any Shape ...

For over fifty years, we've tackled a myriad of product-environmental sealing boot configuration challenges. Drawing on our experience with a wide range of exotic elastomers and high-precision molding, and using the latest computer-aided technology, APM has provided practical and economical solutions for the military, industrial and commercial markets. We welcome the opportunity to provide design assistance. Send us your product, specifications or drawings, and we'll gladly quote.

single-piece silicone rubber keypad seal

... Any Application

Shown at right are two examples of custom-designed silicone seals for use indoors or out. At top, a single-piece clear silicone rubber seal designed to protect delicate circuitry of the outdoormounted controls for a sophisticated audio system from hostile contaminants such as water, dust, dirt and pollen. Silicone rubber preserves tactile feel of buttons for smooth operation. Below, a single-piece tri-color (black, green and clear) silicone rubber seal designed for a remote automotive keyless entry control. With extensive experience in designing and molding a wide range of elastomers, APM specializes in developing costeffective sealing solutions for electrical and electronic applications.

Lighted Pushbutton Switches & Indicators

These custom seals protect STACOSWITCH's Series 90 lighted pushbutton switches and indicators from penetration from fog, snow, salt spray, sand and dust. Resistant to kerosene, salt water, alcohol and light detergents, these watertight seals also assure the pushbutton remains attached to the switch under highimpact shocks up to 1,500 Gs. Just another example of how APM sealing boots help heighten the performance and reliability of your product.

Armored Toggle & Pushbutton Seals

Having all the same sealing characteristics of our standard silicone sealing boots, our armored versions feature a stainless steel actuator that won't rust/corrode and meets the stringent requirements of the medical and food processing industries. In addition, the large actuator is ideal for applications where operators wear work or surgical gloves. These easy-to-install units are reusable, less costly, and seal the panel cutout in which the switch is mounted.

Custom Keypads

You're looking at one of many variations of keypad seals used in telecommunications, security, medical, industrial and other applications where environmental protection is essential for long-term, reliable equipment performance.
