C&K Components, a leading manufacturer of tactile, toggle, rocker and pushbutton switches, and smart card interconnect devices, has developed a new single-pole single-throw, latching version of its NP Series industrial sealed pushbuttons. An innovative internal construction allows designers the feel of a momentary switch that has latching functionality.
“The compact size allows customers many integration opportunities where some switches could not fit before and the IP68 sealing makes it robust enough for all indoor and outdoor applications”, said Kyle Peterson, product manager at C&K Components. “The RoHS-compliant NP Series switches are available in multiple housing styles and can be threaded via front or rear mounts, or slot-mounted.”
The new compact NP Series switch has a short behind-panel depth and is sealed to IP68 standards. The rugged latching version of the switch has a metal body and numerous wire lead options, making it ideal for harsh environments, such as off-road, industrial, transportation, military vehicle, and medical equipment applications.
