Multimec™ 5G

Multimec 5G

New product

Multimec™ 5G switch has a large diameter snap-on cap retention system and an actuator levelled with the switch body. The switch series has 3 standard actuation forces and is only available in high temperature material in order to stand today´s advanced soldering processes. Furthermore, the switch can be supplied with one or two LEDs integrated on it in order to provide excellent illumination. Night vision (NVIS) LEDs are also available.

Caps that fit Multimec™ 5G switches: 1A, 1B, 1DS, 1ES, 1FS, 1GAS, 1GCS, 1H, 1IS, 1JS, 1KS, 1KBS, 1KCS, 1LS, 1M, 1NS, 1PS, 1QS, 1RS, 1SS, 1TS, 1US, 1VS, 1WAS, 1WDS, 1WPS, 1XS, 1ZA, 1ZB, 1ZCS, 1Z, 1ZW, 10R, 10RF, 10RM, 10Q, 10QM, 10C and Aquamec™.
