IA Miniature low profile pushbutton switches for harsh environments IA
Miniature low profile pushbutton switches for harsh environments

The actuator of this product consists of a polyurethane membrane which depresses when the switch is actuated. The membrane is press fitted onto the bushing, providing an IP67 front of panel seal and ensuring high resistance to frost and external contaminants. The actuator material provides a soft feel and allows easy operation even with gloved hands. The low profile design allows easy actuation when the switches are matrix mounted. 

• Resistant to frost, sand and hydrocarbons 
• Tactile feedback 
• Front panel sealed up to IP67 

Typical Applications

IA pushbutton switches are recommended for applications requiring protection from dust, sand, water and other contaminants. Potential applications include off road vehicles, farm equipment, machine tools, food processing equipment and medical instrumentation.
 
 

IR Sealed pushbutton switches - bushing dia. 16 mm

IR
Sealed pushbutton switches - bushing dia. 16 mm


The IR series of sealed pushbutton switches is divided into 2 families : standard models and microswitch technology models. The standard models include numerous terminal options : solder, flying lead, straight PC, quick-connect, but also screw. The screw terminal version, unique on the market for this type of product, withstands up to 4 amps. Moreover, the behind-panel depth of the flying lead version is the shortest on the market.

• Sealed to IP67 
• Illuminated or non-illuminated 
• Tactile feedback 
• Square or round actuator 
• Wide choice of actuator colours 
• Wide choice of illumination colours 

This series can be easily customized. 
Optional marking 
Actuator marking is available on request for models with flat round actuator . 

Integrated resistor 
On flying lead illuminated versions, the LED resistor can be integrated in the product by APEM. On request.


Typical Applications

Audio-Visual Professional, Special cars (electric, hybrids, 4 wheels, sport, bus), Agriculture vehicles, Civil engineering vehicles, trucks, diggers, crane, Marine non military (Leisure and commercial), Professional Communication System, Leisure, Sport, Fittness, Swimming Pool, Communications, Radar, Domestic Electrical Appliances, Professional Electrical Appliances, Medical Instrumentation, Medical equipments (wheelchairs, stair lifts,..), Process Controls, Machine Tools.
 
 

IZ Rear mounted sealed pushbutton switch - bushing dia. 16 mm IZ
Rear mounted sealed pushbutton switch - bushing dia. 16 mm


The IZ series is a rear mounted pushbutton, available with a polyamide or a metal case. This product has been designed to reduce the assembly cost in 2 application types : wave soldering and when using a connector. The IZ series allows flush panel mounting and makes dismounting easier.


 

IF Miniature sealed momentary pushbutton switches - dia.25 mm actuator

IF
Miniature sealed momentary pushbutton switches - dia.25 mm actuator

The actuator of these products consists of a polyamide membrane which depresses when the switch is actuated. The membrane is press fitted onto the bushing. This technology prevents the ingress of liquid or dust into the product. Consequently, the switch features an IP67 sealing level (threaded bushing models) and excellent resistance to frost. 

Two mounting styles are available : by threaded bushing (IFS) or snap-in (IFB). The actuators are offered in seven different colors to combine with two case colors. 

Typical Applications

The IF series pushbutton switches are intended for equipment exposed to bad weather, and most notably to frost. They are also suitable for applications where ease of operation is of prime importance. 
 

Pendant switch IP67 Pendant switch

Pendant switch
IP67 Pendant switch


The APEM pendant switch is a rugged, high performance switch designed for use under severe conditions found in medical, appliance, heavy equipment and industrial control applications. This switch is totally sealed so it can withstand direct water spray and submersion.


• Choice of button, bezel and handle colors 
• 3,5mm Jack Plug, but choice of other plug types 
• 4 mm coiled cord, but choice of other terminals 
• IP67 sealing 

The APEM pendant switch is a rugged, high performance switch designed for use under severe conditions found in medical, appliance, heavy equipment and industrial control applications. This switch is totally sealed so it can withstand direct water spray and submersion. 

This pendant switch was built on the basis of an APEM joystick handle, outfitted with an IS push-button. The connection between the coiled cord and the joystick handle is overmoulded  to obtain the IP67 sealing. 
  
The  coiled  cord  with  a  3,5mm  Jack  Plug  can extend to 4,000 mm.

Typical Applications

• Medical equipments 
• Emergency (ie nurse call) 
• Activation (ie snap-shot) 
• Push-to talk applications 
• Light control (home automation applications) 
• Industrial control applications
 
 

LPI Tactile pushbutton switches with large actuator

LPI
Tactile pushbutton switches with large actuator


This series features the largest actuator and lowest behind-panel depth within the APEM switch range. The LPI has been developed on a modular base to fit the exact needs of technicians and end-users: more than 300,000 combinations are possible in this way!


• Large ergonomic actuator (dia. 35 mm) 
• Tactile feedback 
• Low behind-panel depth (21mm max.) 
• Stylish design 
• Long Life (5,000,000 cycles for 0,5A version) 

This series with the largest actuator and lowest behind-panel depth within the APEM switch range perfectly complements the APEM product portfolio. The LPI has been developed on a modular base to fit the exact needs of technicians and end-users: more than 300,000 combinations are possible in this way! 

For technicians, this pushbutton is available in 2 output versions, for front or rear mounting: a 5A combined separated NO/NC version and a 0.5A 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 series is ideal for all applications where the pushbutton needs to be located quickly. Complying with the requirements of the EN81-70 standard (from Disability Discrimination Act), it allows disabled persons to access lifts and buildings more easily. 

• Where the pushbutton needs to be located quickly (access control, call
information, museum, exhibitions…) 
• Everywhere space is critical 
• Where the end-user uses gloves
