Features & Benefits
The compact low profile weatherproof VSM is UL certified NEMA Type 4, 4x and IP66/67. Aluminum base and cover for exceptional corrosion, wear and impact resistance.
B. High Visibility Position Indicator
Visual open and closed indication is provided with an impact resistant dome style indicator. Inverting the open and closed visual output is easily done by rotating the indicator dome 90 degrees. There is no need to remove the switchbox aluminum cover and expose internal wiring of the VSM to change position indication.

The cover is attached to the base by captive stainless steel bolts placed outside the sealing area.
E. Protective Washers
Clear, nonmetallic, corrosion resistant washers are used to ensure coating integrity when cover bolts are tightened.
F. O-Ring Seal for Watertight Enclosure
The O-ring seal between the cover and base provides a weatherproof seal to prevent water ingress and internal corrosion.
