Circuit Protection Electronics Supply Chain pushbutton pushbutton sealed sealed switch switch

C&K PNP3 series of sealed pushbutton switches, with an additional no-cap option, are intended for rugged applications such as control grip, off-road panels, industrial instruments, lifts, and conveyor controls. Constructed in a black PBT/PC thermoplastic housing, devices include an internal silicone rubber seal and are rated to IP68, making them ideal for harsh environments and for power wash-down applications. Products are tested for vibration (10 to 500Hz) and shock (up to 50g) and are rated for up to 1,000,000 cycles. The snap action provides positive tactile feedback while the lower operating force of 3N reduces operator fatigue. Designed for front panel mounting, devices have a threaded body and are available with a dome bezel as a standard option. A range of actuator styles and colours are offered.
