APEM KL Series

Locking Power Rocker Switches, Panel Mount, Snap-In.

The design of the APEM power rocker switches is available with 2 or 3 positions, with one locked position. The actuator must be pressed to activate the protected function of the rocker. Two frames protect the unlocking actuator from untimely activation. Patented intuitive ergonomics.

New options for the APEM KR and KL Series Rocker Switches include an elastomer membrane to protect against dust.
