Product Overview

Change switch function on Blue Sea Systems water resistant panels with Contura switches

An exact replacement for switches on Blue Sea Systems Contura III water resistant panels, these 2 or 3 position switches can be used to change circuit function within the panel. Internal and external seals allow these vibration resistant switches to stand up to saltwater spray and freshwater washdowns. They are ideal for installations on the fly bridge or in open cockpits. The modern looking rocker switch features an LED to indicate which circuit is ON. Switches with two ON positions have separate LEDs to indicate which of the two circuits has power. Available in Black or Gray to match Blue Sea System panel switches. These switches can also be installed as a stand alone using the cutout template below.
