Electro-Mech's New Single Module, Multi-Image Lighted Pushbutton Switches Offer Valuable Panel Space Savings
SOUTH EL MONTE, Calif. - Nov. 5, 2001 - Electro-Mech Components, Inc. has introduced the Series 600/800 Multi-Image Switch Series offering an ideal solution for high-density instrumentation panels and display areas where several switching functions may be required.
Designed in a low-profile, unitized housing, these compact switches feature a choice of either T 1-3/4 (5mm) midget flange based LED or incandescent lamp lighting and hidden legends and may be specified with standard lenses or with interchangeable lens/filter combinations to allow for optimum design versatility. The multi-image and horizontal or split legend faces save valuable panel space to maximize small area limitations.
Series 600 (3/4" square) and Series 800 (3/4" x 7/8" rectangular) units can be specified in singular or multiple switch functions from SPST to 6PDT, with momentary or alternate actuation to meet individual customer requirements. The new switches can be provided with two or four LED's/lamps for dual or quad light segments. Units can be supplied individually or as ganged stations and easily installed with simple snap-in mounting from the front panel. An optional clear or translucent (smoke) grey lens cover is available for protection and enhancement of replaceable filters, or to achieve hidden legending.
Switch ratings are 2 amps resistive, 0.5 amp inductive at 30VDC or 125VAC. Other features of the Series 600/800 include an operating pressure of 2 lbs. (± 1 lb.), plunger travel of approximately 0.187", weight of less than one ounce, and a rated life of 100,000 minimum actuations. Interconnect with solder lug or PCB terminals. Unit pricing is $14.90 each at 1,000 pieces with delivery of 7-8 weeks ARO. Complete specifications are available upon request. Custom configurations are also available.
