Ruggedized meets reliable in VCC’s comprehensive product lineup
Ruggedized product lineup
Dirt. Vibration. Moisture. Sweat. And yes, even electric shock. Our innovative products are built to withstand whatever the job demands, day in and day out. And they do it without sacrificing reliability or safety.
At VCC, we understand that optimal viewing angle isn’t a nice-to-have when there’s work to be done in harsh environments. So our products do more than look the part. From EMI protection to watertight seals, our products are built for some of the toughest working conditions out there.
Whether you need a standardized or custom design, we’ll deliver the ideal solution along with heavy-duty efficiencies in production, assembly and manufacturing costs.
No matter the application, VCC offers industrial-strength solutions:
- Food Warming Equipment
- Countertop Ovens & Boiling

PMIs built to take whatever you dish out
Whether you need wire leads, tabbed terminals or screw-post indicators, your control panel will be foolproof when it comes to keeping out moisture, or dirt with IP-rated products ranging from IP65 to IP67. Our products are bred for long, hard life with high visibility, day or night.
Light pipes that line up for daily abuse
Whether you need linear or flexible light pipes, VCC has the solution that delivers watertight indication without compromising quality or visibility. These products are threaded, sealed and ready to provide years of reliable indication in the harshest applications.
Panel lenses designed to shine when the going gets tough
When the stakes are high, VCC’s panel lenses step up with watertight construction to help eliminate electrostatic discharge. Various lens types deliver optimal daylight visibility and viewing angle. Mounting hardware is included to ensure the indicators stay put (and dry) in high-vibration situations.
To indicate protection levels, we use IP ratings. IP ratings, known as Ingress Protection or International Protection ratings are numerical scores used to communicate the levels of sealing effectiveness of electrical enclosures against intrusion from foreign bodies such as dirt and water. These ratings are defined to the international standard of EN 60529 ((British BS EN 60529:1992, European IEC 60509:1989).
Example IP Rating: IP65
In this example, the first digit represents protection from solids and the second digit represents protection from liquid. If one of the digits is replaced by an “x” then the device is not rated for that specification.
Here’s a quick reference guide of the two and what they mean:
Solids – degree of protection from foreign bodies
Liquids – protection level from various forms of moisture (drips, sprays, jets and immersion).
