Tactile pushbutton switches with large actuator

14 May 2008 Interconnection

Apem has announced the release of the LPI series of tactile pushbutton switches, with the largest actuator and lowest behind-panel depth within the APEM switch range.

The actuator is 35 mm in diameter and behind-panel depth is a maximum of 21 mm, and the switches boast lifespans up to 5 million cycles.

The LPI series has been developed on a modular base to fit the exact needs of technicians and end-users, offering a choice of more than 300 000 possible combinations.

For technicians, the series is available in two output versions for front or rear mounting: a 5 A combined, separated NO/NC version and a 0,5 A NO version. The low behind panel depth allows installation in environments where space is critical.

For end-users, many different actuator types are available, with raised crimped, screen printed or raised moulded symbol. The large actuator surface allows a visible marking and a big symbol height. Dot or ring LED illumination is also available.

Because of its large actuator, this product is ideal for applications where the pushbutton needs to be located quickly (access control, call information, museums, exhibitions etc). Complying with the requirements of the EN81-70 standard, it allows disabled persons to access lifts and buildings more easily. It also lends itself to applications where the end-user uses gloves.
