New product

Harsh, noisy environments, including those involving vibrations, make the use of a sealed switch with a confirming “click” imperative. The IM series, with its strong & audible tactile feedback, responds to those needs.

Main features

  • Snap-action mechanism: audible tactile feedback, high voltage rating.
  • Enhanced safety, resistance to shocks and vibrations
  • Light plastic case
  • 2 bezel diameters
  • matching the I series range design
  • Ergonomically adapted for use in tight spaces (handles& vehicles)
  • IP67 frontal sealing
  • 1 million mechanical lifecycle (or low level current),
  • NC+NO function.
  • Highly reliable in the harshest environments.
