MICRO SWITCH™ Hazardous Area Switches
Hazardous Area Switches

Designed to extinguish the flame path in a potentially explosive environment, MICRO SWITCH™ hazardous area switches are weatherproof, water-tight, and dust-tight. These highly reliable, rugged switches are often used in control valves, petrochemical, conveyors, grain elevators, and material handling.
