Waytek Engine Start and Stop Switches

Waytek, Inc., a distributor of electrical supplies, has introduced engine start and engine stop momentary switches for emergency vehicles. The switches are push buttons with permanently engraved “Engine Start” (on 44157 switch) and “Engine Stop” (on 44158 switch) into the surface of the button, which will not wear off.

Their housing is diecast with a knurled facenut and the button is impact-resistant molded plastic. They have two brass screw terminals with lockwashers. These switches repel oil, water, and other liquids and are rated at 35 amps at 12 volts DC. —www.waytekwire.com, 800-328-2724
