First time starting is enhanced by Johnson Electric’s robust array of product technologies for marine applications based on years of field proven product experience. Starter reliability in adverse conditions is a critical design requirement.
In addition, Johnson Electric also custom engineered solenoids and sealed rocker switches to provide auxiliary functions such as compartment locking in onboard environments.
Reliability, more cranks per battery, and compact size are key requirements for personal water craft starters. Johnson Electric’s PowerPod™-MD starters for marine applications are custom designed for very high reliability in a difficult environment. Rigorous testing with application specific engines in Johnson Electric’s starter’s lab ensures the robustness and life required for each unique marine application.
Johnson Electric provides designers of marine cabins with compact, low voltage linear solenoid solutions designed specifically for use as locking devices for on-board storage compartments. Solenoids in the de-energized position hold compartment doors closed and locked. When electrical power is supplied to the solenoid from the dashboard controls, the solenoid plunger moves out of the way allowing access. This enables use of one ignition key without the need for multiple additional keys for compartment security. Marketed under the Ledex brand, custom engineered tubular and open frame solenoids are ideal solutions for these short stroke actuation requirements that must also withstand water, humidity and salt spray.
Johnson Electric provides custom engineered sealed rocker switches for all weather conditions. The Burgess-TS switch incorporates an innovative Tough Seal™ technology to deliver the highest reliability in extreme environmental conditions. The Tough Seal technology within the switch provides protection against water submersion, high pressure water and fine dust ingress. Customization of switch housings for color, rockers and illumination is provided to meet the human interface requirements of customer’s product.
