For use in 22mm and 30mm pushbutton applications, Switchtec’s SCL 10D pushbuttons are a cost effective, high quality alternative to other high profile brands, providing specifiers and buyers with an alternative or secondary source for improved pricing structures and/or a secure, constant supply of switches.
Aimed at OEMs, CEMs, panel builders, and equipment manufacturers, the pushbuttons are for use in a wide variety of control panels in both industrial and commercial applications.
In HMI terms the SCL 10D series comprises flush head, extended head, mushroom head, extended head latching, mushroom twist to release, mushroom push pull, and a twin head push button. All are available in red, yellow, blue, green and white (illuminated and opaque versions) and also a black opaque version.
Illuminated versions are available using LED technology. By incorporating LED technology the 10D series offers a very low power consumption of less than 13mA per unit.
The units’ detachable selector switches are available for use with a standard head, extended head, and also as a key switch type. The 10D series includes enclosed push button stations, whereby all buttons are available ready fitted in an IP65 grey or yellow enclosure.
10D series push buttons are supplied with a unique contact block coupling that features a built in quick release button, designed to make installation easier and much faster, yet providing a robust and safe installation. The quick release feature is designed to be used without fixing tools. The button is simply operated by hand from either the front or the back of the panel, with the emphasis on swift installation. Further, colour coded contacts enable easy recognition (red = normally closed, green = normally open)
The 10D pushbuttons have an ingress protection rating of IP65 when installed into a panel. All are fully RoHS compliant and carry UL/CSA, TUV and CE approval.
In many ways, Switchtec’s SCL 10D series has been developed to meet the requirements of the Installer. As time is an ever-decreasing resource, SCL has designed the series to be user friendly and simple to install.
The development of this industry standard style switch is well advanced and manufacturers and end users are looking for a modern, compact design with ease of installation and wiring. Human to machine interfaces will always require switches of this style.
The SCL 10D series is compact, easy to install and aesthetically pleasing to any panel builder. Units are available ex stock from distributor Switchtec.
