Switches for Harsh Environments

Dec. 1, 2008
A family of switches is designed for severe operating conditions.
The ESM and DSM Series devices are single and double switch modules that are supplied ready to install with optional cables or connectors. Both modules are protected by silicon rubber caps and sealed to IP 65 when mounted, suiting them well for situations in which dust, water, oil or solvents could adversely affect the function of standard switches. Designed for use in front panels, multi-function grips or other switching units, the RS and QS Series switches provide tactile feedback and positive snap-point action. The RS Series comprises two bi-directional switch models—the RS1, with a single switch function in both directions, and the RS2, which has a double function in both directions. The two QS models are quadrant switches, with either single function (four K12 switches) or double functions (eight K12 switches) in each of four different directions: up, down, left or right.C&K Components www.ck-components.com617.969.3700
