New to Carling Push Button Switches?

 Genuine Carling Technologies marine push buttons have mega power ratings — and they won’t break the bank. With a sleek look that rises less than 1/10 of an inch off your panel, these push buttons give a cool, modern look to any dash. 

Carling AV/AVH-Series Anti-Vandal Push Buttons feature high-powered ratings up to 20 amps. These single pole, waterproof push button switches are available with momentary and maintained (latching) circuits. 

The AV/AVH-series is well suited for any application requiring stringent, electrical and sealing capabilities. And, both the AV and AVH options have quick connect tab terminals, which allows for easy installation and daisy chaining.
