IF series

IF

New product

The IF series actuator consists of a polyamide membrane which depresses when the switch is actuated. The membrane is press fitted onto the bushing. This technology prevents the ingress of liquid or dust into the product. The IF series pushbutton switches are intended for equipment exposed to bad weather, and most notably to frost. They are also suitable for applications where ease of operation is of prime importance.

Main features

  • The switch features an IP67 sealing level (threaded bushing models) and excellent resistance to frost.
  • Two mounting styles are available: threaded bushing (IFS) or snap-in (IFB).
  • The actuators are offered in seven different colors to combine with two case colors.
  • Actuator dia. 25mm and body dia.16mm
  • Can be used with gloves
