This is an archive article published 28.07.2014. Some information may no longer be up to date and in line with the current state. Please contact us in case of interest.

Well known Dutch producer of top quality switches - company MEC, comes with novelties in a form of relatively big caps for a universal series of push buttons Multimec 5G (lifetime of 10 million cycles).

Series 5G is exceptional by the fact, that it can by equipped by a huge amount of caps of various sizes, shapes and colors. In result, you might even not say, that beneath so different push-buttons” (caps), still the same push-button switch is used.

The latest addition to the family of caps for the 5G push buttons is:

10R/10RF/10RM - round 30mm caps. 10R has a slightly curved surface, 10RF has a flat surface and sharp edges, and the 10RM has a metal plate with an illuminated legend.

10Q/10QM - square 22mm caps. 10Q has a flat surface, 10QM has a metal plate with a illuminated legend.

Multimec 5G push-buttons operate with these caps reliably - independently on the place of pressing the button (in the middle/ on the edge). Both series have optional accessory - sealing enabling to reach IP67 and a plastic spacer. Need for a spacer depends on the front panel thickness (into which a push-button is built-in) and on the overall design of a device. Overall building height is only 11mm and they´re intended to be placed in almost one level with a front panel, resulting in a very elegant look.

New MEC switches can be seen even from afar Homogenous illumination (backlight) of these big caps can be easily reached by means of 4 small LEDs placed on a PCB around a push-button. This also gives a possibility to freely use various LED according to your choice and to use their color combinations - for example for indication of a device status. As a standard, 7 solid colors are available and 1 transparent “frost ice” white for illumination.
Recently, we also added many other caps and push buttons from company MEC into our offer. All new additions can be found below this article.

Detailed information will provide you the MEC 10Q and MEC 10R datasheets.
Upon request, we´re able to provide you any type from this new series in a short lead time.
