PRODUCT IMPROVEMENT – New 211-5 Switch


This improved switch design will significantly improve the performance and the life of the switch over previous versions.

The new 211-5 switch became standard on all Bernard™ TGX™ XS and T-Gun™ Semi-Automatic Compact Series MIG Guns (formerly Tregaskiss™ Semi-Automatic MIG Guns) on March 1, 2011.
 

What Changed?

The switch casing design has been updated to allow for improved retention tabs between two switch halves, which also reduces the chance of switches tearing apart during use. This new design also provides for an enhanced connection between the exterior terminals and the switch (see Figure 1 below).
