Switches & Pilot Devices

From miniature pilot lights and switches that mount into 8mm panel cut outs through full size industrial switches that mount into 30mm cutouts, we have a switch or indicator for almost any application.

Terminations include solder / quick connect terminals, screw terminals, or PC board pins for direct board mounting. Miniature models use snap action gold plated contacts for superior low level switching, whereas larger models use slow-make, double break contacts for switching heavier loads, up to 10A.

Many models offer the flexibility of modular construction, which allows you to change contacts, lamp voltages or button colors easily.
