MSS – Metal Slim Switch for Stylish and Robust Design
By: SCHURTER Inc
The MSS switching technology is extremely precise and is designed for applications where some degree of pressure is required to trigger the switching function. Not too little and not too much: Capacitive technology triggers switching with only a touch, while mechanical technology has moving parts that can wear over time. The moving parts can also be subject to ingress. The MSS requires a light pressure of 1-3 N on the surface, to provide just the right amount of touch to prevent unintentional switching. It has an IP rating of IP67 and a lifetime rating of >20 million actuations. Whether used in a home doorbell, or medical product, a laboratory device, or industrial equipment, the compact switch offers 8 different bezel housing colors and a spectrum of RGB illumination colors for a host of customized options. Size offerings are 19, 22, and 30 mm diameter. In addition, with a slim mounting depth of only 8 mm, this switch is highly versatile for a variety of applications including those where depth is limited such as door jams and densely packed enclosures.
Switching voltage and current is max 60 VDC and 100 mA. Operating temperature range is -40 to 85 °C. The switching function is momentary (MO/NO) or latching (LA). Highly robust for the demanding applications, the MSS actuator is stainless steel with an impact resistance rating of IK06.
Pricing starts at $22.00/piece in 100-piece quantities. Packaging is 10 pieces in a box and includes the nuts in a bag. Data sheet link for the MSS is SCHURTER Inc MSS Datasheet (https://www.schurter.com/
