We are making a watertight enclosure that needs to be interacted with while underwater - we need a waterproof switch of some kind that is operable underwater (for instance by a diver). It’s always a possibility to go for a reed switch setup, but I thought that the BR switch would be a simpler product to use in this case, if it works.
I am wondering if anyone has any experience actually using this switch with the setup being submerged? The switch plug could be turned out (off) by default and then turned in while underwater. The risk I see in turning it in like so is that it may transport some water inside as the O-rings move. Perhaps there is a minimum length that the switch can be turned out and still be considered waterproof and safe to operate underwater.
I will be experimenting and testing this a bit, but if anyone has any bad or good experiences I would love to hear about it!
