IR series - latching

IR latching

New product

The IR series of sealed pushbutton switches is divided into 2 families: standard models and microswitch technology models. The standard models include numerous terminal options: solder, flying lead, straight PC, quick-connect, but also screw.

The screw terminal version, unique on the market for this type of product, withstands up to 4 amps. Moreover, the behind-panel depth of the flying lead version is the shortest on the market.

Main features

  • Sealed to IP67
  • Illuminated or non-illuminated
  • Tactile feedback
  • Square or round actuator
  • Wide choice of actuator colors
  • Wide choice of illumination colors
  • Easily customized
  • Optional marking (actuator marking is available on request for models with flat round actuator)
  • Integrated resistor
  • On flying lead illuminated versions, the LED resistor can be integrated into the product by APEM upon request
