Product Announcement from APEM Components, Inc.
APEM Components has released its LPI series illuminated pushbutton switches. With 35 mm dia actuator and actuation force of less than 1 lb, the LPI series suits various indoor applications where pushbutton needs to be located quickly.
Configurable to fit exact needs of end-users with over 20,000 possible configurations, LPI is offered with 9 different bezel colors, 5 LED colors, and illumination in dot or light-ring configuration. LEDs are available in 6, 12 and 15 V and actuator can be produced with raised crimps, screen printed emblems, or raised molded symbols.
For technicians: this pushbutton is available in 2 output versions, for front or rear mounting: a 5A combined separated NO/NC version and a 0.5A NO version. The low behind-panel depth allows installation in environments where space is critical.
For end-users: many different actuator types are available: with raised crimped, screen printed or raised moulded symbol. The large actuator surface allows a visible marking and a big symbol height. Dot or ring LED illumination is also available.
Because of its large actuator, this series is ideal for all applications where the pushbutton needs to be located quickly. Complying with the requirements of the EN81-70 standard (from Disability Discrimination Act), it allows disabled persons to access lifts and buildings more easily.
