Circuit Protection Electronics pushbutton switch

SCHURTER MSS Metal Line Switch, a flush mount pushbutton delivers a shallow mounting depth and stylish design. Sporting a multi-color side-ring illumination, device provides the user with visual feedback from the side in addition to the front. The greater coverage allows for lateral status indication, which may be especially desired from a distance. Non-illuminated versions are also designed to provide visual indication with a colored bezel. Product’s switching technology is extremely precise and is designed for applications where some degree of pressure is required to trigger the switching function. Not too little and not too much: Capacitive technology triggers switching with only a touch, while mechanical technology has moving parts that can wear over time. The moving parts can also be subject to ingress. Device requires a light pressure of 1-3 N on the surface, to provide just the right amount of touch to prevent unintentional switching. It has an IP rating of IP67 and a lifetime rating of >20 million actuations. Switching voltage and current is max 60Vdc and 100mA. Operating temperature range is -40 to 85°C. The switching function is momentary (MO) or latching (LA). Highly robust for the demanding applications, the MSS actuator is stainless steel with an impact resistance rating of IK06.
