Switch Identification

Does anybody happen to know the name of the company that manufactures the engine start and stop buttons in the attached console picture? I know Halmatic fit these to most of their RIBs and that they are common on the older RNLI alb's. Google has so far drawn a blank! Thanks

I don't know who they are but these guys have been known to perform magic with unknown electrical parts!

They were from Lucas Electrical back in the day. They were not necessarily Lucas Marine from memory. That's where I would start. If they don't have them anymore, there will probably be some old bloke hanging around that will remember them.

I didn't realise it was you that required the switches. Anything like that PM me. I used to buy them from Lucas off the shelf. Can't see them online though. They are widely used so an offshore operator would have them.
