BLUE SEA SYSTEMS
Heavy-Duty Series Battery Switches

Up to 600 Amperes Continuous Rating for large diesel engines, high power output, and low heat generation

These switches have a continuous amp rating substantially higher than standard switches for large diesel engines, high power output and low heat generation. Switches are ignition-protected and safe for use aboard gasoline-powered boats, and they meet all ABYC battery switch standards. Long 0.870" one-piece copper studs reduce the risk of overheating and accept four or more cable terminals, and up to 4/0 battery cable size. Case design allows surface or rear panel mounting. Fits all Perko and Guest low-amperage battery switch hole patterns. Tactile textures on face let you know the knob position by feel. Rated for high inrush currents (10 repetitions for 0.25sec Blue Sea Systems Engine Starting Standard).
