IDEC - Switches & Pilot Devices

A8 Series

The A8 series of switches and pilot devices offer the extreme in space savings. With only an 8mm panel cutout, they are ideal for high density or very small control panels such as handheld devices. Low level snap acting contacts are ideal for PLC inputs, timer triggers, sensor triggers, or any other type of logic level switching. LED lamps are replaceable unlike most other switches and pilot lights of similar size. With a choice of round square or rectangular button heads, 5 colors, and either momentary or maintained (push-on/push-off) action there is sure to be a model to meet your needs.

AP Series

The AP series of pilot lights offer a simple, low cost solution to panel mounted indicating light needs. Available in four panel cutout diameters, with either dome or flat lenses, all units use an integral LED array with built in current limiting resistor. All models mount with a locking ring that fastens from behind the panel, rendering them tamperproof from outside the panel. Termination is via solder terminals of various sizes, depending on the panel cutout. Available in 5V DC, 12V AC/DC or 24V AC/DC; there are also optional snap-on transformers and a DC-DC converter to support higher voltages.

AP22M Series

AP22M Series Available in 12V DC, 24V AC/DC or 120V AC, the AP22M series of pilot lights use high-intensity LEDs to provide ultra-bright visibility even in direct sunlight! These lights are perfect for use in applications located in dirty environments, or with high ambient light levels, such as waste water treatment plants, car washes, and solar or outdoor control panels. AP22M is available in six vibrant color lenses or with a clear lens to provide sharper contrast between lit and unlit. When viewed from the side, these lights provide illumination up to 100 times brighter than a standard pilot light. You need to see it to believe it!

ARN Series

The ARN series of mono-lever switches are an ideal solution for such applications as table or tool X-Y positioning. These switches mount into a standard 30mm round panel cutout and offer up to four directions of control. Three styles of handle include the standard lever, a short lever that helps prevent person from bumping into it, and an interlocking lever that requires an operator to deliberately pull on a release mechanism before activating the switch. Lever action can be maintained or momentary (spring return) in any combination. Typical applications include tool positioning and security camera control (tilt and pan).

CS CAM Switch Series

The CS series of cam switches offer the ultimate in selector switch flexibility. Available up to 12 positions, with up to 20 contacts they can meet almost any selection need. Choose from four different detent angles. Staggered screw terminals allow for easy wiring, and a large variety of handle styles are available (including key operated) to satisfy almost any demand either aesthetic or functional. Standard contact configurations are available, but customization is what cam switches are all about.

CW Series

The IDEC commitment to assuring safety in all operating environments has resulted in stylish, compact and space-saving switches and pilot devices. The innovative two-step locking lever integrated with a guard provides a higher level of safety, and the low projection from the panel surface reduces the possibility of unexpected activation or operator damage. The CW series add a sleek and stylish image to the panel with black or metallic bezels. The shortest depth behind the panel in its class contributes to reducing machine and control panel size.

E-Stop Stations

IDEC emergency stop stations now give customers more choices than ever before. IDEC enclosures coupled with IDEC HW and XW emergency stop switches are a perfect match.

HW Series

Building on a long history of pushbutton dominance, IDEC offers its internationally rated 22mm pushbuttons and pilot devices, the HW series. These IEC style devices feature tamperproof mounting and construction, modular stackable contact blocks with IP20 fingersafe screw terminals, and pure silver contacts with a self cleaning action. Models include illuminated and non-illuminated pushbuttons, pilot lights, selector switches, key switches, mono-levers, pushbutton-selectors, and Emergency Stop switches.

L6 Series (Oversize heads)

The L6 Oversize Operator Series of pushbuttons and pilot devices are ideal for gloved personnel and provide an alternative to 22mm pushbuttons when 16mm panel cutouts are required. Oversize button heads for round, square, mushroom, selector and key switches.

LB Series

With a choice of metallic or black plastic bezels, and flush or standard mounting, our newest 16mm switches add style and safety to any application. All LB switches are UL recognized, TUV approved, CSA certified and CE marked, as well as provide an IP65 degree of protection. Available in illuminated pushbuttons, pushbuttons, pilot lights, selector switches, key selector switches, illuminated selectors, lever selectors, dome pilot lights, lever switches and buzzer models, these switches are perfect for use with instrumentation, communication equipment, computer peripheral, telecom, medical equipment, food and beverage processing equipment, semi-conductor equipment, non-industrial applications (train cab, parking machines, audio/visual equipment), panels and more!
