Guard switches, see them fully

System Integration

These Electro-Mech switches have a lens guard to prevent accidental activation or turn-off; clear acrylic guard material allows full, unrestricted viewing of legends and button colors.

Electro-Mech Components Inc.’s latest lighted pushbutton switches have single-, dual-, and quad-style switches with integrated lens guard, for safety-conscious installations on instrumentation and control panels where designers must provide greater accident prevention for critical switching applications. Ideal applications include aircraft, avionics, power machine control, medical instrumentation, and simulation systems.

The group includes Electro-Mech’s Series 60, 600 and 644-2100 styles, with SPST-6PDT circuitry in a single-lamping design (Series 60), and two SPST-6PDT model styles in dual- and quad-lamping configurations (Series 600 and a smaller Series 644-2100 style). All have momentary or alternate action switching functionality. The same lens guard also can be added to Electro-Mech’s single lamp/LED and quad lamp/LED switch and annunciator products. Most models also accept LEDs for extended life. The lens guard operates in a gravity or spring-return manner, offering a choice for design/ergonomic considerations. Unit prices range from $19 each for 100-249 pieces.
