Switches for Military Vehicles – We solve problems where standard off-the-shelf components fail

Where we won:
For a very challenging application (for a tilt cab switch), our customer had an issue indicating that the cab was in the down position.
Competitive devices failed after 4,000 miles of harsh testing. When our product exceeded 10,000 miles, the customer was delighted. Soo that is why we work with CPI’s products!

Sealed Switches

Originally designed to MS39058, CPl’s sealed switches are completely submersible. Ideal for use in the engine compartment and in harsh exterior locations – even under the chassis.

Thermal Switches

Setpoint capability of0°F to 1850°F, CPI offers unmatched precision and the most rapid response time available in a thermal switch.
