Foremost Electronics is now supplying the range of IDEC CW pushbutton switches, pilot lights, selector and key switches, all of which feature in an ergonomic, modern and complementary design. With a standard bushing of 22mm and many customisation possibilities, each product benefits from 50 years of experience; these industrial switches incorporate the latest technologies and modern design with CE, UL and CCC recognition.
The CW series provides a sleek and stylish look to machines or control panels. Due to the slim profile (only 2.5mm), the control surface is safer because there is less chance of unexpected operation or accident by hitting the switch in error. The design also means that the switch is cleaner, as it reduces the build-up of dust.
A space-saving design benefits from a short depth behind the panel (39.9mm), which facilitates the design of smaller machines and space-saving control panels. Up to three contact blocks (non-illuminated models) or two contact blocks (illuminated models) can be installed.
Enhanced security and safety are provided on the CW range, as IDEC's original two-action push-turn locking lever provides a higher level of safety by preventing unexpected release of the locking lever. In addition, the position of the locking lever can be used to verify if the contact block was installed securely by checking from the back of the panel. The locking lever is integrated with a guard preventing the locking lever from unexpected release or damage by trapped wires. The IP20 finger-safe terminals prevent electric shock.
To meet all customer requirements, it is possible to order the contact block and actuator separately or to order a complete unit ready-assembled.
The CW range will find many applications in industrial machinery, electrical cabinets and control panels and commercial equipment including appliances, gaming and vending. The CW range will also be appreciated in all other installations needing shallow behind-panel depths, heavy-duty performance or attractive appearance.
