APEM Components Inc

., a manufacturer of miniature and industrial switches, featured an expanded line of IP sealed pushbutton switches with the addition of a flat top plunger switch series at National Manufacturing Week last week in Rosemont, IL. See below for more on this and other NMW developments.


APEM expands its IPP pushbutton line.

The IPP Series provides customization to match the switch to unique applications. Options include customer-specific markings, backlit legends, custom molded caps, and wire assemblies.

The switches are recommended for any application that requires a sealed, ergonomic electrical interface. Applications also are found in markets including marine, off-road, transportation, military, medical equipment, and security.

The RoHS compliant pushbutton switches are available in momentary and maintained functions. The switch is offered with a black bezel frame and seven actuator color choices. Sealing to IP67 is another advantage; elastomeric seal construction ensures a reliable seal.

The pushbutton switches are rated for 100 mA at 24 V dc with an expected life of 200,000 cycles, and 2 A at 125 V ac with an expected life of 10,000 cycles per UL1054. The IPP Series is manufactured with gold plated silver contacts and is available pre-wired or with solder lug terminals.
