MultimecMEC, a leading European manufacturer of high quality switches, is pleased to announce its family of sealed pushbutton switches called Multimec. Multimec switches are 10mm square, sealed to IP67 and are designed to withstand 10 million actuations.

Four basic switch modules 3A, 3C, 3E, and 3F provide the basis for assembly to produce a wide variety of options of both illuminated and non-illuminated switches.
