145 MD Push button with Reed contacts

Product Announcement from elobau sensor technology, Inc.

elobau's 145 MD dual button based on reed technology and is characterized by its very long service life of up to 109 switching cycles. The PBT housing is mounted using a simple "push and lock" function, which means the button is simply pushed into the dedicated 37.1 mm x 21.1 mm recess, latches in and is sealed with an NBR seal. The button covers are available in different colors depending on their use, as are the custom, hot-stamped symbols.

The 145 MD is also suitable for outdoor use. It can withstand temperatures of -35 °C to +70 °C and guarantees electrical protection to IP 67. With 48 V switching voltage, 0.5 A switching current and 10 W/VA switching power, its performance is highly respectable given its small size of 39 mm x 45.5 mm x 26.7 mm. Protruding struts in the specially designed housing prevent inadvertent switching of the button, with its 3 mm key drop. The button is connected using a 3-pin AMP Superseal plug. Optionally, a mating can be supplied with a cable output.
