Custom Cable Assembly for Laboratory Integration

Throughout history, humanity has made countless scientific advances. These include developing new medicines and vaccines, creating new technologies, and learning more about the world around us. All of these accomplishments have one thing in common: they were made possible by people working in laboratories. A lot goes into making a lab function, including reliable and innovative technology.

One of E-Switch’s customers is an international manufacturer of laboratory instruments and solutions. For the past four decades, this company has been developing systems and components to help their many customers at pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, university research departments, and diagnostic laboratories. Their mission is to help laboratories achieve their goals through both their products and support.

The company recently created a custom cable assembly with custom graphics. Its purpose is to integrate various laboratory workstations to support the equipment. As part of this custom cable assembly, the company needed a reliable anti-vandal switch. This is where E-Switch’s ULV4 series comes in.

The ULV4 Series anti-vandal pushbutton switch is UL certified. This means that Underwater Laboratories, a third-party certification company, has helped to ensure the product is up to safety standards. To help you find the ideal switch for your needs, the ULV4 offers several customization options. These include several terminal options, dot, ring, or power symbol illuminated pattern options, many LED color options, and multiple voltage options. The ULV4 is also available as a prewired assembly. To learn more about what the ULV4 has to offer, check out its datasheet and the specs below.
