Own-brand panel-mount switches from RS Components stand up to life in the open

Anti-vandal, IP67, 16mm, 19mm and 22mm SPDT switches offer 62 different variants including illumination options

Taipei, Taiwan, 26 March 2015:

RS Components (RS), the trading brand of Electrocomponents plc (LSE:ECM), the global distributor for engineers, has launched an extensive range of rugged stainless-steel pushbutton switches offering versatile choices and own-brand value for panel builders.

The anti-vandal panel-mount switches are designed to withstand physical attack, and are rated up to IP67 thereby ensuring above-panel resistance to water and dust ingress. This makes them ideal for uses such as public kiosks, outdoor panels or open dashboards.

The range comprises 62 different variants, in SPDT switch configuration and offering the choice of on-on or on-momentary action, 3A or 5A current rating, and a choice of red, green, yellow, blue or white LED ring illumination. Non-illuminated switches are also available. Variants require a 16mm, 19mm or 22mm panel cut-out and feature quick-connect terminals.
