Schurter announced the addition of a color anodized aluminium housing to its line metal pushbutton switches. The red and green housings can be used to distinguish the start/stop switching functions. The robust vandal proof switch has an IK07 protection class for high impact and IP67 ingress protection against water and dust. Its low profile flat front construction guards against side impact. The actuator is made of durable stainless steel. The standard versions of the new MSM color housing are offered in 19 mm and 22 mm mounting diameters with electrical rating of 5 A at 250 VAC. Additionally, custom lettering, other mounting diameters, and colors are available. Versions with switching current and voltage of 100 mA at 30 VDC, or 10 A at 250 VAC are also available. A version with IP67 rated microswitch provides seal protection from the back. Terminals are quick-connect. Assembly includes pre-wiring of the contact module, which is then snapped onto the actuator housing. Typical applications include controller panels for automated machinery, construction machinery, industrial and medical equipment.
