Default Aerosport Products Rocker Switches

Received and wired, then bench tested, the new rocker switches from Aerosport Products. These are sweet! Very clear graphics and a top quality switch. I chose blue back-lighting on everything. Easy to make these conform to your mission with all the different contact options. I chose to have the bottom symbol only illuminate when the switch is on for positive confirmation. Both the top and bottom are on a shared dimmer. Makes it nice for evening to dark adjustment. Very easy to get a few customized rocker covers as well. Can you spot them? BTW...hard to photograph with my phone, these are even more brilliant in person.

Very happy....as always....with Geoff and his team. Terrific support and quality products.

Great to see these all wired up Sean. We are all so very happy that you are happy with our new custom switches. I'm sure you are very eager to get these in your panel.

Thanks again for your business!!!!

Aerosport Products is now offering new rocker switches!!!

Our ASP Aero Switches are a TRUE DPST with 2 independent LEDS
Colors offered are BLUE, GREEN, RED and WHITE

Each switch comes laser etched with any of the designs in the image below.
When power is provided to the switch (Master Batt on) the upper LED of the switch will illuminate the upper part of the rocker showing the image of that switches function. When the switch is activated (pushed forward) the lower LED will illuminate the lower part of the rocker giving you positive confirmation that your switches function is now activated. You can also choose your lower rocker design from our designated list.
And if you don?t see anything you like, we can always create a custom design.
The switches and rockers are not available on our site yet, but will be soon.

Please put those red switches far away from the others! Don't want to accidentally bump off the avionics master when turning off (or on) pitot heat. Unless you like "excitement"...

Question

Are they compatible with the Carling Contura series?

I think i'd want my Fuel Pump switch (a) red and (b) far away from the lights, master, alternator, etc. so I didn't hit it by mistake.

Otherwise, these look really great, and are already tailored to my use, unlike the Carling switches I was originally considering. Good to know!
