Blue glow vandal-proof switches

8 March 2006 Switches, Relays & Keypads

Schurter has added blue illuminated piezo and mechanical switches to its Metal Line offering. The new colour option joins the existing yellow, red and/or green options in point or ring-lighted versions. These luminous switches are designed for use in applications where lighting is dim, and indication is necessary to identify the actuation area.

The optical feedback indicates the switch position (on/off). Custom legends can be applied to identify switching function. Pictures and/or text can be applied to stainless steel types. The laser-etched letters and symbols are resistant to abrasion and fading for a lifetime that exceeds that of the switch.

The Schurter Metal Line is comprised of a wide range of vandalproof metal switches. Metal Line products are available with Piezo electronics for long-life, protection against outdoor elements, high impact resistance and overall indestructible wear. Also available are indestructible wear, as well as switches with electro-mechanical actuators for applications requiring travel with the switching action. Mounting dimensions range from 16 to 30 mm and have an IK rating 02-07 for impact withstand. IP ratings range from 40-67 for the level of seal protection.

Examples of applications include ticket terminals, parking garages, gas stations, roadside call boxes, elevators, door controls, automated bank machines, Internet terminals, and information booths.
