In the past, illuminated light switches had been designed with a built-in glow lamp. For the first time, we have produced a light switch with illuminated components containing - of course - no radioactive materials. The pigments integrated into these components charge up by absorbing light energy, and then glow in the dark. This is a purely physical process, which guarantees long-term operation without any signs of wear.
Series 1: Porcelain. Gleaming white and indestructible.
Our first switch series is made from the material that has been used in electrical products since the very beginning: porcelain. It is used not solely for aesthetic reasons, but for functional ones: porcelain offers good dielectric strength and tracking resistance, resists ageing, is extremely hard, and withstands fire and heat undamaged. The high-quality quartz porcelain (C 110) used for these switches complies with the standard for material properties according to DIN VDE 0335, Part 3. Production of technical porcelain was shifted from the previous site, in Schiernitz, Thuringia, in 2021. These items are now made by our long-standing partner Rauschert, whose plant is located in the Polish town of Mysłakowice.
