All-plastic 22 mm industrial control switches

Elektron Technology announced the launch of Arcolectric’s new range of all-plastic APB, ALB and ALS 22 mm industrial switches.


Elektron Technology, owner of the Arcolectric, Bulgin and Sifam electronics manufacturing brands, has introduced Arcolectric’s latest range of all-plastic industrial switches. The APB, ALB and ALS range is a complete family of 22 mm diameter industry standard switches ideally suited to applications including control stations, instrumentation panels and industrial machines.

The switches are of modular construction with individual contact blocks which can be easily ganged together to provide numerous switching options. The R Type mushroom head emergency stop push switch complies with EN418 regulations. Rated for single and three-phase power supplies (220/240 V at 3 amps and 380/415 V at 1.5 A), the switches carry UL and TUV approvals and come with matching LED pilots lamps for 24 V dc through to 440 V ac operation.

These high quality durable switches come in a wide choice of styles including Push Button with raised and flush profiles with momentary or latching operation, Selector Switches with long or short levers and Key Operated Switches. The ranges are suitable for standard configurations or can be adapted to customer requirements for volume orders with both illuminated and non-illuminated versions available. Arcolectric has developed a complementary range of accessories including IP67 rated splash proof covers.

“This new range of switches is a significant enhancement to the Arcolectric product offering,” said Stuart Hutchings, marketing manager, Elektron Technology. “The Arcolectric 22 mm switch is designed with our customers in mind to offer design flexibility while maintaining the highest standards of performance and durability.”
