Split image illuminated pushbutton switch

November 30, 2012 // By Julien Happich
Electro-Mech Components' Series SW44863 split-image switch series offers an ideal solution for high-density instrumentation panels and display areas in a compact footprint.

Designed in a low-profile single housing, these compact switches feature SMT LEDs on a built in PCB for backlighting the 25.4x10.7mm pushbutton. Pushbutton lenses feature hidden legend lenses with multiple colour options for backlighting. The multi-image and horizontal or split legend faces save valuable panel space to maximize small area limitations.

The SW44863 unit is SPST circuitry, one normally open circuit, momentary snap feel, and legends can be customized to panel requirements. The new switches can be provided with two or four LED’s for split light segments. Units can be supplied individually and easily installed directly to the PCB. An optional clear or translucent (smoke) grey lens cover is available for protection or to achieve hidden legends. Switch ratings are 0.1A resistive, 0.05A inductive at 30VDC or 125VAC. The unit is rated for a minimum of 100,000 actuations.
