NKK Switches announces the availability of the FP01 Series of contactless illuminated pushbutton switches. FP01 devices are ideal for critical and demanding applications requiring a robust and dependable solution.
FP01 contactless, illuminated pushbuttons use a diode photo interrupter rather than traditional contacts to ensure high reliability and a long life of three million mechanical operations minimum. These pushbuttons present an attractive alternative for engineers charged with designing panels for equipment exposed to corrosive gases and similarly harsh environments, where reliability due to contact contamination is a concern.
The rugged construction and smooth actuation of the FP01 Series allows repeated and rapid actuation force anywhere on the cap surface. Typical high usage applications for these devices include operator controlled industrial machinery, vending machines, gaming, and museum displays.
