Manufactured by IDEC, the new CW range includes pushbutton switches, pilot lights, selector and key switches in an ergonomic, modern and complementary design. With a standard bushing of 22mm and ample customisation possibilities, each product benefits from 50 years of experience, as well as having CE, UL and CCC recognition.
Pushbutton, selector, key selector switches and pilot lights are offered in a consistent design. There are many options to customise each product in terms of appearance or functionality: flush or prominent buttons, plastic or metallic bezel, possibility of illumination and up to six contacts per switch.
The CW series gives a sleek and stylish appearance to machines or control panels. Because of the slim profile (only 2.5mm), the surface is also safer as there is less chance of unexpected operation or accident by hitting the switch. The design also means that the switch is cleaner because it has less dust build-up.
The short depth behind the panel (39.9mm) allows for smaller machines and panels. Up to three contact blocks (non-illuminated models) or two contact blocks (illuminated models) can be installed.
IDEC's original two-action push-turn locking lever provides a higher level of safety by preventing unexpected release of the locking lever. In addition, the position of the locking lever can be used to verify if the contact block was installed securely by checking from the back of the panel. The locking lever integrated with guard prevents the locking lever from unexpected release or damage by trapped wires. The IP20 finger-safe terminals prevent electrical shock.
To suit all customer requirements it is possible to order the contact block and actuator separately, or order a complete unit already assembled. The CW range is suitable for industrial machinery, electrical cabinets and commercial equipment (appliances, gaming, vending, etc). The CW range will also be appreciated in all other installations needing shallow behind-panel depth, heavy-duty performance or attractive appearance.
