The new MSM LA CS ON/OFF stainless steel pushbutton switch from SCHURTER is equipped with an actuator made of durable ceramic. The same ceramic is already being used to manufacture the previ-ously introduced MSM CS momentary action switches. The material resists scratches and abrasive chemicals as well as impact; it can also be labeled with highly durable legends.

MSM LA CSThe non-illuminated versions of the MSM LA CS and MSM CS switches are offered with a white actuator surface. Standard or customer-specific black legends are applied directly into the ceramic material. Due to the base material and the labeling process, the inscription is scratch-proof and stands up to common cleaning agents. The illuminated design provides a uniform glow across the entire surface in the desired illumination color (red, green, blue, white, orange).

The MSM LA CS pushbutton switch is available with mounting diameters of 19 and 22 mm. It is suited for use in a temperature range of -20 °C to +85 °C. Equipped with blade terminals, the MSM LA CS can be wired up very quickly: the pre-assembled cable set is plugged into the quick-connect terminals of the microswitch, which is then snapped into the switch housing.

The sturdy stainless steel housing and the actuator made of scratch-proof ceramic make the MSM LA CS latching action and MSM CS momentary action switches especially well suited for use in equipment operating in harsh environments, or applications that require protection against vandalism. These in-clude, for instance, vending machines, ticket machines, equipment in restaurant operations, public facili-ties, sanitary facilities as well as applications in hypoallergenic environments such as the medical sector.
