KH series


New product

Designed for harsh environments, KH series rocker switches are protected against accidental actuation with a protection guard. Featuring IP69K front panel sealing as standard, the KH series is the most robust product of the K range. Due to its panel seal, this series is perfectly adapted to the harshest environments (high pressure cleaners, dust, salt spray…). The KH series is available illuminated and non-illuminated, with numerous symbols and rocker colors, to meet customer requirements at best.
