APEM Components has expanded its line of IP sealed pushbutton switches with the addition of a flat top plunger switch series. The IPP Series is designed to allow for customization to help match the switch to unique applications, including customer-specific markings, backlit legends, custom molded caps and wire assemblies.

The IPP Series is suited for any application that requires a sealed, ergonomic electrical interface, including off-road and transportation. The pushbutton switches, available in momentary and maintained functions, are offered with a black bezel frame and seven actuator color choices to satisfy most coding requirements while offering a superior look to any application.

Sealing to IP 67 is another important advantage of the IPP Series, the company says; the switch’s elastomeric seal construction is designed to ensure a reliable seal while providing the IPP with a unique feel. The pushbutton switches are rated for 100mA at 24 VDC with an expected life of 200,000 cycles, and 2A at 125 VAC with an expected life of 10,000 cycles per UL 1054. The IPP is manufactured with gold-plated silver contacts and are available prewired or with solder lug terminals.
