Foremost stocking Push-In connector switches

Distributor, Foremost Electronics, is now offering a range of 22mm control panel switches from IDEC with secure screw-less push-in terminations which greatly reduce assembly time.

The Push-In termination technology option is available on the industry standard YW and HW series and the CW series (flush mounting) switches. Each of these three series of switches are for 22mm mounting and available as a push button (with and without illumination), selector switch, key selector switch and pilot light/indicators.

Wire termination technology has slowly migrated away from the traditional screw connector and moved towards “screw-less” terminations. Recently, the spring clamp has taken a step sideways and the “push-in termination” has taken the lead. This simple connectivity is now referred to by IDEC as the S3 termination.

The three IDEC switch series with push-in connectivity are:

  • The YW series (22 mm industrial switch family) which delivers all the key features required by the industrial automation market including push button, illuminated push button, key and selector switch.
  • Where style is considered important and must be matched by high performance the CW series (22 mm flush design industrial switch) is available. This product range commonly is used in medical appliances, consumer applications and the food industry, where aesthetics and reliability are key.
  • The HW series (22mm industrial switch) is IDEC’s largest portfolio of switches and actuators for the industrial automation market and includes rotary switches, selector switches, combined rotary and push-button, 4 or 5 position selectors and many more options.
