Courtesy: ApemApem has added three models to the AV series of pushbutton switches. The stainless steel switches have been tested and qualified for impact resistance and sealing—IP and IK levels. They are designed to withstand adversity such as rain, frost, ultraviolet rays, and vandalism. For increased operator safety, APEM’s AV series includes three models approved to EN 61058-1 that can switch a 250 Vac current. The design of the AV 250V models has been specifically adapted to meet the requirements of the EN61058-1 standard, including: minimal distance between contacts and housing, adapted case length to ensure correct creepage distance, and self-extinguishing or flame retardant material with insulating power.
