October 30, 2018 – C&K announced the launch of its PNP3 series of sealed pushbutton switches with an additional no-cap option. The switches are intended for applications such as control grip, off-road panels, industrial instruments, lifts, and conveyor controls.
Constructed in a black PBT/PC thermoplastic housing, the switches include an internal silicone rubber seal and are rated to IP68, for harsh environments and for power wash-down applications, or anywhere the switch may be exposed to dust, water or other damaging elements. PNP-series switches are tested for vibration (10 to 500 Hz) and shock (up to 50 g) and are rated for up to 1,000,000 cycles.
Designed for front panel mounting, the switches have a threaded body and are available with a dome bezel as a standard option. A range of actuator styles and colors are offered, and the PNP-series (including PNP8) switches may also be specified with the new no-cap option.
Capable of handling resistive currents up to 5 A with silver contacts, a gold over silver contact option is available for low-current applications, down to 10 mA. Circuit options include momentary action SPST NC, SPST NO and SPDT – all with double break.
