New range of anti-vandal switches

February 2017 Operator Interfaces, Switches & Relays

RS Components (RS) now offers the AlcoswitchL anti-vandal switch series from TE Connectivity. The switches offer a flexible, vandal-proof solution and are designed for security and reliability in a wide variety of panel mount applications including kiosks, ticket dispensers and ATM and vending machines, as well as industrial equipment, elevators and escalators, instrumentation and communication and control equipment.

Alcoswitch offers a vandal-proof solution using a jam nut accessible from the rear of the panel and is available in multiple panel sizes including 16, 19 and 22 mm in both single and double pole configurations sealed to an IP67 rating.

The switches provide an easy user interface with a large pushbutton and offer an optional LED indicator to illuminate the switch with multiple colour options including white, red, yellow, green and blue. The LEDs help enable additional visual flexibility with various pushbutton symbol types including fixed ring, moving ring, spot and power logo. A number of body styles are available including single-pole momentary, single-pole on/off, double-pole momentary and double-pole on/off.

With an operating temperature range from -20 to 55°C, the switches use a stainless steel actuator with silver- or gold-plated copper contacts with terminals sealed in silicon. The switches are compliant to EU RoHS and REACH regulations, and meet the UL (E46765) requirements.
