Product Description

Nav Anc Rocker Switch


Genuine Carling Contura II rocker switch labeled “Nav Anc”.   This Nav Anc rocker switch is a Double Pole Double Throw ON-OFF-ON switch.  It is mean to be used to trigger both your running lights (red and green) and stern light (white) – when the switch is up.  And when the switch is down, it turns on only the stern light.

All of New Wire Marine’s rocker switches are labeled with durable UV stabilized ink, and large format text.

This product is the ENTIRE SWITCH combo, and includes both the switch body and the labeled cover.  Find the Nav Anc switch cover sold separately here.

Our Navigation / Anchor rocker switch has two indicator lights, that illuminates when the switch is ON in either position.  If wired correctly, the UP position indicates on both lights as it should.

This Nav Anc rocker switch will replace any Carling V-series or contura style rocker switch.  That includes contura style switches sold by Carling, Sierra, Blue Sea Systems, Sea-Dog, etc.  It uses an industry standard 1.45″  x 0.83″ mounting hole.

How our switches are better:

  1. Genuine Carling switches – We’ll never try and pass-off cheap Chinese knock-offs like some of our competitors. You’ve probably seen other sites list a switch as “fits carling”… that’s a red flag.  All our switches and covers are the genuine article.  And like all cheaply made counterfeits, you CAN tell the difference.
  2. Support – We know this product inside and out, and are happy to help our customers.  Need help wiring up one of our products, just call: (843) 297-8348
  3. Guarantee – While Carling does not offer a warranty, we’re so confidant in the quality, if your switch breaks or the ink wears off within 2 years, you can return it for a free replacement!
  4. Durable UV stabilized ink – Have trouble with labels wearing off on your switches?  That’s because cheap non-UV stabilized ink was used… you won’t find that here.
  5. Hard cover style – We never use the “soft touch” style that will melt into a sticky mess after a few months in the sun.

Accessories:

Contura Styles, lenses and colors:

This Nav Anc rocker switch is a contura II style, as pictured above.  Contura II is the one with the small bumps on it.  We carry printed contura II’s in red and blue lens options (selection from menu above).

We also carry this label in contura V style switch here.  The contura V style includes a two lamp switch, which allows a great backlighting effect for night readability.

Typical use for an Nav Anc Rocker Switch:

Your “running lights” also called navigation or nav lights are the red and green lights on the bow.  Your anchor light is the all round white light on the stern, or on top of the T-top or radar arch, etc.  These are often controlled with one switch because they have a very specific operation per the USCG.  When running (actually moving at night), all lights should be on (red, green and white).  While sitting at anchor in the dark, only the white light should be on.

That exactly how this rocker switch is designed to operate.  It’s a true Double Pole Double Throw, and with two simple jumpers it can be wired so the UP position triggers both bow and stern lights.  The down position will only turn on the stern light.

Please see the wiring diagram for details on how to make this happen.[/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]

    The switch will be an exact fit. The only reason for the four stars is I haven’t installed yet. I do like the wiring diagrams and internal diagrams for every typical switch. Website is user friendly

  2. Karen Curry (verified owner)

    The switch was a perfect replacement for my original switch. The video on installation made the process so easy! Thank you!
