APEM KR Series

Power Rocker Switches with a State-of-the-Art Look Based on Curved Shapes.

On illuminated versions, laser etching allows direct marking on the rocker, without using lenses. To simplify and optimize assembly when several switches are involved, APEM also offers panel mounting units and connectors.

Power rocker switches 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.
