APEM IM Series

Sealed Snap-Action Pushbutton Switches, Bushing Ø 12 mm, Momentary

Harsh, noisy environments, including those involving vibrations, make the use of a sealed switch with a confirming “click” imperative. The APEM IM series, with its strong & audible tactile feedback, respond to those needs. The IM push-button series includes snap-action mechanism: audible tactile feedback, high voltage rating, Matching the “I” range design, diameter 12 mm bushing, round actuator, light plastic case, two bezel diameters (standard 17 mm, reduced 15 mm), and sealed to IP67, and mechanical lifetime of 1 million cycles.

Snap-action: Tactile feedback with an audible click, high-current/voltage rating, sealed to IP67, flat round actuator for optional marking, NO+NC.
