VISTA, Calif., 3 March 2016. APEM Inc. in Vista, Calif., is introducing three AV series rugged vandal-resistant push-button switches that are tested and qualified for impact resistance and sealing. The AV series of pushbutton switches withstand the effects of rain, frost, UV, and vandalism.

The AV switches are approved to EN 61058-1 (NF/CE standard) that can switch a 250-volt AC current. The EN61058-1 approval is essential in all applications linked to the operation of consumer equipment such as light fixtures and devices.

The AV 250-volt models are adapted to the EN61058-1 standard for minimal distance between contacts and housing, case length to ensure correct creepage distance, and self-extinguishing or flame retardant material with high insulating power.
