Dear Camillo,

very interesting question!

When I restored my engine control panel (as I did now want to have the ugly Yanmar panel), unable to find these switches, I decided to go for the attached ones.

Hope you can now find the old ones!

Fair winds!

Those buttons were common in industry automation, could have been e.g. Schneider or alike.

 

Schneider makes similar: https://www.se.com/fi/fi/product-range/633-harmony-xb5/?N=3779275991&filter=business-1-teollisuusautomaatio&parent-subcategory-id=89188&No=0&Nrpp=12

They also have IP66 protection level.

Hi Camillo,

we had to replace the buttons in 2019 and went with EATON Series M22, see picture below.

Not exactly the same but close enough for us :-)

Fair winds,

PS: I believe the EATON switsches have a 'back-light' option so you can see them in the dark; our yard wired this up initially but it turned out that the backlights were too bright (for our liking anyway), they were iluminating half the cockpit.

We therefore opted to keep the standard ilumination from the top, which we rigged with a red LED; it is switched using the red switch above the fuel gage. Much more subtle
