KR series

KR panel

New product

Power rocker switches with a state-of-the-art look based on curved shapes. On illuminated versions, laser etching allows direct marking on the rocker, without using lenses.


Main features : 

  • an infinite number of symbols available for all rocker colours within a short time
  • a behind-panel depth lower than equivalent models in the market
  • optional IP68 front panel sealing
  • 10-terminal versions allowing independent LED circuit or additional integrated functions.

To simplify and optimize assembly when several switches are involved, APEM also offers panel mounting units and connectors.
