When you are a builder of an elite brand of boats such as HCB Center console yachts, your demands for quality, reliability, fit, and finish are at the top of your list. At this year’s 2018 Miami International Boat Show, HCB displayed some of the most amazing offerings of the show. One of the components we recognized quickly was their choice of the new Dual Color LED Switches from Bluewater Enterprises.
Bluewaters founder David ???? was in the booth when we were there and offered to give us the scoop on why we are finding his product line everywhere we see a premium brand of boat. When the Dual Color LED function switches were introduced, they brought features no other brand of switch offers. When turned on, the Blue LED lights up through the actuator. Activate a particular function by pressing one of the switches. This will change the Blue LED to Red, indicating that the chosen function is turned on. Also coming soon is the new Nav/Anchor light which will change from Green, to Red, to Blue. These switches feature a powerful light that can be seen even in sun light.
With an IP67 waterproof rating and Stainless Steel SS316 body, these switches can be installed in extreme applications and wet and dusty environments, but they are NOT submersible under water. If you are sinking your boat and looking for electricity, well what can we say about you.
OEM’s have fallen in love with the fact that a single switch can be used for so many applications and the identifying function of each push button switch is simple with the interchangeable 3M adhesive backed actuator PU Dome Backlit Labels. It’s the only actuator that allows the LEDs in the switch body to pass light through the label. The result is excellent visibility at night. For more take a look at our video coverage.
These switches are available for purchase at CP Performance and Hardin Marine
