APEM Intros Hall Effect Pushbutton
Hall-effect pushbutton switch.
Haverhill, MA — APEM Components, Inc. is introducing its IH Hall Effect pushbutton. This pushbutton switch has a 12mm diameter bushing with a low behind-panel depth. The company's IH series offers one-of-a-kind Hall Effect sensor technology for a long lifecycle.

APEM has created two versions of the IH series: the IHL and the IHS, and both offer long-life contactless switching of 5 million operations. It is sealed to IP67. The dome-shaped actuator is available in eight colors.

The IHS Series comprises ruggedized switches which perform well in harsh environments. The switch is recommended for applications where the switch is often activated. For example, in applications where positioning the load is critical as in material handling, loaders, lifts, trucks, buckets and shovels. The switches are used in applications where a simple On/Off control is not sufficient and where a linear output is preferable.

Typical applications are where operators need to control motion and speed. This switch is suitable for control valves or variable speed drives and can be used in various applications including industrial controls, heavy duty equipment and materials handling.
