Navimec Switches Provide Joystick Functionality
Foremost Electronics has announced the Navimec switch concept from leading switch manufacturer MEC which offers soft-touch joystick functionality making it possible to navigate up, down, left and right with the provision of a centre function that will typically be used as an enter key. Navimec switches are available with or without illumination and the non-illuminated versions may be over-printed with appropriate legends.
The Navimec switch series is designed for PCB mounting with and may be incorporated in control panels together with the existing illuminated Illumec switches 4A and 4F offering very bright illumination and excellent tactile feel. Navimec is available in SMD and through-hole mounting, is RoHS complaint and has a life expectancy of 10,000 operations and waterproof sealing exceeding IP67. The keycaps are specifically designed with a hi-tech look and a soft touch finish obtained by an elastomer coating.

Alan Cook, Managing Director of Foremost Electronics comments, “The MEC Navimec switches are a very useful addition to our range of man-machine interface solutions. In addition to their functionality our ability to print information on the button pad assists our customers with panel design and functionality. As they are waterproof to better than IP67 MEC Navimec switches may be used in industrial as well as pro-audio and instrumentation applications.”
