Now with 16 A switching current at 250 VAC


Schurter’s MSM LA and MSM LA CS latching-action stainless steel and ceramic surface pushbutton switches are now available with a maximum rated switching current of 16 A at 250 VAC, uprated from 12 A. Designed for primary ON/OFF switching, the up-rating on the MSM LA and LA CS expands on their suitability for use in appliances with higher loads.

Metal line switches are especially well suited for use in equipment operated in harsh environments, or applications that require protection against vandalism, such as vending machines, ticket machines, food service equipment, public facilities, and sanitary facilities. SCHURTER’s existing MSM LA and MSM LA CS series have proven especially well suited for such applications, with a rated temperature range of -20 °C to +85 °C, impact resistance rating of IK 07, and an ingress protection rating of IP 64 from the front contact area.

Application areas for the MSM LA and MSM LA CS are expanded, as a result of the increased 16 A rat-ing. These application areas include: various electric machinery, such as conveyors and lifts, medical chairs and surgical tables, oxygenators and aspirators, as well as commercial appliances, such as heat-ers and humidifiers, food processors and coffee mills.

Schurter’s MSM LA series offers a classic stainless steel actuator, with optional point or ring illumi-nation, while the MSM LA CS series offers SCHURTER’s innovative scratch resistant backlit ceramic surface. The LED supply voltage is 24 VDC. The multi-faceted pushbuttons are available with mounting diameters of 19 and 22 mm, and equipped with blade terminals for quickly affixing wires: the pre-assembled cable set is plugged into the quick-connect terminals of the microswitch, which is then snapped into the switch housing. The MSM LA and MSM LA CS series switches comply with the EU low voltage directive, IEC 61058-1 and UL 1054 standards. The microswitches are ENEC, UL, CSA and CQC approved.
