Vandal proof switches for secure applications
Knitter-switch has a new  range of vandal-proof push button switches. The PV series switches have been designed for applications in harsh environments, where security and reliability are paramount. Four of the switch families in the PV range feature metal bodies and one is plastic, all have metal actuators. Four out of the five models meet IP65 levels of protection against water and dust and all are RoHS compliant.

All of the metal switch bodies are made from brass, with either gold or nickel-plating, or stainless steel for high durability. Electrical contacts have a minimum life expectancy of 30,000 to 100,000 operations dependant on model. The PV series offers a number of illumination options including centre dot or circle rim types in red, green, yellow, blue and white. To facilitate panel design a variety of actuator bezel shapes are available including flush or domed.

Terry Moss, general sales manager at knitter-switch UK comments: "We have had a number of requests from our customers for vandal proof switches capable of operating in harsh environments. Our new PV series is ideal for security panels and keypads for outdoor and industrial applications.
