Targeted for the electrical/electronic, medical, instrumentation, and control equipment industries, the IP Series of pushbutton switches mount in a 13.6-mm hole and project less than 20 mm behind the front panel. The pushbuttons have maximum current/voltage ratings of 100 mA at 24 Vdc with an expected life of 200,000 cycles, and 2 A at 125 Vac with an expected life of 10,000 cycles. The switches are available in either solder lug or insulated wire-lead terminals and have gold-plated silver contacts. A two-position actuator indicates switch state by projecting higher when the switch is in the OFF position.-Features include shock and vibration resistance, round and square panel bezels, and sealing and illumination options. The black bezel frame comes with seven actuator color choices.
