Independently Controlled Piezo Momentary Switch

  • Piezo momentary switch is based on a solid-state output allowing for a very long life expectancy (more than 50 million cycles), ideal for demanding applications where reliability is most important.
  • The flat actuation surface is completely closed, preventing the intrusion of liquids or other contaminants, perfect for surface cleaning required in the medical and food-processin
  • High performance sealing (IP68 and IP69K) is achieved due to the one-piece construction of the switch.
  • Outputs are independently powered and polarity insensitive
  • Outputs use photocouplers photorelay, Max.:60V 550mA
