Jul. 18, 2016 – APEM, a manufacturer of man-machine interface products, has launched three new models of AV series switches, a series of “vandal-resistant” pushbutton switches that promise to deliver robustness and aesthetics.
According to APEM, the design of the AV 250V models has been “specifically adapted to meet the requirements of the EN61058-1 standard, including: minimal distance between contacts and housing, adapted case length to ensure correct creepage distance, and self-extinguishing or flame retardant material with high insulating power.” The new models are approved to EN 61058-1 (NF/CE standard) that can switch a 250VAC current, and are tested and qualified for impact resistance and sealing – IP and IK levels, says APEM.
