Farnell appointed as authorised distributor for Grayhill precision switches
Farnell announces its appointment as an authorised distributor for Grayhill, a manufacturer of precision switches for use in a wide range of human-machine interface (HMI) solutions.
The new agreement offers Farnell customers fast delivery of a wide range of high-quality HMI products for design into OEM systems across EMEA and APAC regions. Products available include optical encoders and joysticks, rotary switches, keypads, pushbuttons, and touch encoders.
This new addition to Farnell’s portfolio adds a switch company highly specialised in optimising haptics (touch and feel of interfaces). Their advanced designs mean Grayhill products are regularly a central component of precision medical devices and defence applications, including emergency responder radios, as well as luxury car manufacturers and rugged interfaces for off-road vehicles.
Keith Forbes, Global Product Segment Leader for Switches, at Farnell, said: “The rise of haptics in the field of touchscreens and many other human interface devices is an area of expertise that runs deep at Grayhill. Their product lines of rotary switches and encoders will enable developers and OEM manufacturers to access and deliver the finest components for their projects on fast lead-times from our stock. The addition of the Grayhill range adds even greater depth to our inventory of sought-after components and further reinforces Farnell as a service and support leader in these regions.”
Grayhill’s Director of Marketing, Karen Entriken added: “This new agreement provides the means to deliver Grayhill’s products across EMEA and APAC with the advantages of local stock. Our products offer customers precision and functionality for touch displays, keypads, and rotary switches that can support multiple languages and end-product configurations, all backed by Grayhill’s depth of experience and history of innovation.”
Since its foundation in 1943, Grayhill has been committed to providing top-quality human interface solutions for a wide range of applications.
Grayhill precision switches are now available from Farnell in EMEA, Newark in North America, and element14 in APAC.
