The switches are designed for security and reliability in a wide variety of panel-mount applications including kiosks, ticket dispensers and ATM and vending machines, as well as industrial equipment, elevators and escalators, instrumentation, and communication and control equipment.

Available in single- and double-pole configurations, the switches are sealed to an IP67 rating.
The switches provide an easy user interface with a large pushbutton and offer an optional LED indicator to illuminate the switch with multiple colour options including white, red, yellow, green and blue.
The LEDs help enable additional visual flexibility with various pushbutton symbol types including fixed ring, moving ring, spot and power logo.
A number of body styles are available including single-pole momentary, single-pole on/off, double-pole momentary and double-pole on/off.
With an operating temperature range from minus 20 up to 55 degrees Celsius, the switches use a stainless-steel actuator with silver or gold plated copper contacts with terminals sealed in silicon.
