Manufactured from robust stainless steel or chrome plated brass, Bulgin’s extensive range of vandal resistant switches are designed with a high resistance to wear and tear, corrosion and harsh use in potentially hostile settings.

These include public areas, industrial environments and building management applications.

The switches are in stock at distributor Anglia Components.

The switches are able to withstand extreme temperatures, dust, rain, snow, ice, dirt and moisture.

These robust switches are available in a variety of styles and formats making them ergonomic and aesthetically pleasing.

They can be specified with mechanical, piezo or capacitive touch buttons and with or without illumination. The wide range of options allow them to be seamlessly integrated into the design of the product rather than looking like the switch was an afterthought.

Constructed from stainless steel throughout with an option of a brass, chrome plated alternative where the ultimate strength of steel is not required, the switches are available in front and rear panel mounted versions for ease of integration and have three profiles, prominent, domed and low profile with a choice of switching configurations.

The low profile style switches are also available with a latching, push on - push off, action.

Illuminated versions of the switches are available in dot and ring LED indication and a variety of illumination colours including bi-colour LED’s.

Some models also feature LED illumination driven by 6V, 12V & 24V together with rear of panel sealing, these options make the integration of the switch simpler and add that extra dimension to control panel layouts and functionality.

Terminations on the switches are provided by PCB pins, solder tags, quick connect tabs, flying leads or screw terminals depending on the model chosen.

Options of IP66 & IP68 front panel sealing and impact resistance to IK10 standards when combined together with the other features help the Bulgin vandal resistant switches meet the ergonomic, electrical and environmental demands of most switch panel designs.

With industry standard mounting diameters and panel cut-outs, IP rated versions and momentary or latching switch options, Bulgin’s extensive Vandal Resistant push button range can provide the perfect switch solution for a wide range of designs.

Typical applications include kiosks, elevators, ticketing machines, industrial, security, building automation, marine, transport and off highway vehicles.
