Schurter new MSM II momentary pushbutton switch.

Schurter recently extends its momentary pushbutton switch series MSM to include the MSM II. The new generation MSM II features:

  • Availability in 16, 19, 22 and 30-mm mounting diameters.
  • A subminiature microswitch that provides a shallower mounting depth for switching currents from 100 mA to 3 A for SPDT as well as DPDT circuits.
  • Increased ESD resistance (contact: ± 8kV; air: ± 15kV).
  • Increased impact resistance IK 08.
  • A temperature range from -30°C to +85°C.
  • Haptic and optical feedback.
  • Lighting options include ring, point or surface area.
  • The ability to choose between single color or RGB, which allows for individual settings and light scenes.
  • All lighted versions available for a supply voltage of 5, 12 or 24 VDC.
