The KP01 series of silent actuation pushbutton switches series are not only available with RGB technology, but designers can also choose switches constructed with a red/green, built-in, bicolor LED. An amber color can be produced easily by simultaneous illumination of the red and green LEDs. The company says the built-in LED frees engineers from having to source LEDs on their own and install them, or from having to assemble an LED into the base switch. Installation is said to be eased by the specially designed, snap-in stand off for secure printed circuit board mounting and alignment. Terminals are epoxy sealed to lock out flux, dust and other contaminants. The single-pole, single throw momentary switch is rated at 100 mA maximum at 12 V DC and features a mechanical and electrical life minimum rating of 5,000,000 actuations. Three different cap sizes are available in the series—12 mm, 15 mm and 17.4 mm. The switch’s sculptured square caps allow easy installation of film inserts and are said to provide versatility and design flexibility in all applications, according to the company. Engineers can request legend packets, which help facilitate the ordering of customer specific legends.
