ETD has basic single toggle back-lit switches that can power up to 6 surface lights, all the way up to customized digital control panels that manage multi-unit setups. Some have momentary pattern control buttons, some come with labels, others have amber light traffic advisor indicators; all are wired with 18 gauge color-coded wires. Always mount switches at arm’s length for quick operation, and keep them out of the sun. Some are made of aluminum, others of polycarbonate, but one thing is for sure...they are durable and reliable and will hold up even under heavy use.How to Choose a Switch Box
Pre-think the layout of the console. You want it functional, efficient, and easy to use when seconds count! Selecting just the right combination switch you’ll need to control your setup is the first step. Ask yourself: Is it 1 switch for 6 lights...or 6 switches for 6 separate functions? Should you choose a switch that is backlit only when you turn it on, or one that’s black lit all the time making it perfect for nighttime use because each option is easy to identify? We’ve got toggle, momentary switches, and high-tech digital ones, too. Some control traffic and show the signals and flash patterns, in addition to operational switches.
