News Release from:
16 December 2009
Continuing its policy of continuous improvement, knitter-switch has entirely redesigned its popular MT and MP families of toggle and pushbutton switches. In doing so, knitter-switch has not only made significant improvements to the component parts of the switches, but has also optimized the production process allowing the company to reduce the lead times for standard switches by two-thirds. Even customer specific special variants can be supplied in just six to eight weeks.
According to knitter-switch, quality management has also been improved ensuring the highest quality standards alongside faster production
Both switch families are suitable for a wide range of applications in test and measurement instruments, mechanical engineering and production automation as well as outdoor applications such as harvesters, GSM repeaters and railway systems
Available with 1 to 4 poles, key features of the improved switch ranges include a mechanical life of up to 200,000 operations, almost unlimited switching function combinations, an operating temperature range as high as 140°C and the availability of waterproof versions to IP67. Waterproof rubber caps and coloured marking caps can be specified as well as various toggle and push button actuators suitable for extreme environments. . Switch contacts are available plated in gold or silver rated to suit individual applications and are rated from 20mV/1µA to 250V/3A.
Standard switches are available direct from knitter-switch and a number of distributors throughout Europe. Samples are usually available on next day delivery. For more information visit www.knitter-switch.com
