Few foods have achieved the level of enduring popularity as pizza. From small towns to big cities, a pizza restaurant is rarely far away. Whether you’re going back to pizza’s roots with Italian Neapolitan pizza, traversing the United States with New York’s thin slices or Chicago’s deep-dish style, or even switching it up with a calzone, it seems there’s a pizza for every occasion. Of course, a lot goes into making a great pizza: crust, toppings, seasoning, and of course, a reliable pizza oven.
One of E-Switch’s customers is one of the United States’ largest home appliance manufacturers. One of this company’s latest innovations is a high-end pizza oven designed to bake restaurant-quality pizza from home. The oven includes both a pizza oven and a convection oven. The oven can heat up twice as fast as its alternatives. Its design keeps the source of heat closer to the pizza. It also includes a precision surface sensor to monitor the temperature and adjust accordingly. Finally, it includes a broil amplifier for additional heat.
As part of their new pizza oven, the company needed a reliable anti-vandal switch for an on-off function. This is where E-Switch’s ULV7 Series comes in.
The ULV7 series anti-vandal 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 ULV7 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 ULV7 is also available as a prewired assembly. To learn more about what the ULV7 has to offer, check out its datasheet and the specs below.
