Metal Line switches glow with 7 luminescent multicolour options

08 September 2017

Schurter expands its MSM Metal Line range with a pushbutton switch capable of multiple illumination possibilities ideal for status indication.

The illumination provides a homogeneous quality in a ring illuminated style, or complete actuator area illumination. Status indication is possible in seven different colours in a single product.

The setting of the individual colors is particularly easy to realise by means of the wire connectors, which are conveniently coded. Three flat plug connectors are used to control the colours red, green and blue. By combining several flat plug connectors, the additive colours cyan, magenta, yellow or white can be created.

The new MSM Multicolor family offers the same diameters as the standard ring illuminated version in 19, 22, and 30mm. The switches with area illumination use a scratch resistant ceramic actuator and have housings with diameters of 19 or 22mm. Housings are made of robust stainless steel for both ring and area illuminated versions.

High seal protection and impact resistance ratings of IP67 and IK07, make the switches particularly suitable for use in equipment subjected to harsh environmental conditions, or applications that require protection from vandalism.

The MSM series provides a moving actuator, which is ideal for use in applications where both status indication and tactile feedback are desired. In addition to the MSM series, as well the MCS series also with a mechanical actuator, Schurter's piezoelectric (PSE) and capacitive (CPS) switches include options for multicolour illumination. Through a complete offering, Schurter provides various technologies in metal line pushbutton switches for a host of specific applications.
