EXPANDED SWITCH RANGE TARGETS INDUSTRIAL PANEL BUILDERS

C&K is one of the world’s most trusted brands of high-quality electromechanical switches, and now an expanded range of its products is available from RS Components.

New products available from RS include a full selection of popular PCB- and panel-mounting pushbuttons, DIP switches, key switches and tactile switches. These are available with a range of latches and in a wide choice of styles, shapes and colours, and are particularly suited to industrial machine and panel building applications.

For example, the PNP series of sealed pushbuttons are IP68 sealed to endure harsh environments and power wash down, and are aimed at applications in transportation, industrial control, test equipment and automation. The units are available in multiple housing styles, handle current up to 5A and feature an extended operating life of one million cycles.

Also available is the APB series of backlit industrial pushbutton switches, which integrate LEDs in blue or white to provide a highly visible indication that the switch has been activated or turned on. Nine different cap symbols are offered as standard parts, and C&K now also offers a fully customisable painted and laser-etched cap capability.

APB switches are SPST momentary-action devices and are available in a threaded version that features an IP67 panel seal and an IP65 snap-in version without a panel seal.

The extensive C&K portfolio is shipping now from RS throughout the Asia Pacific region.
