Arcolectric’s 8200 & 8300 Miniature Push Button switch ranges now
have higher current ratings. Both ranges have been re-assessed for
ENEC approval to 12(12)A 250Vac at 105°C for 10,000 operations.
The extensive 8300 range is available with either illuminated or nonilluminated
buttons, in single or double pole with momentary or latching
switch action. There are options for various switching functions, terminal
styles – including push on, solder and PCB terminals, along with options
for actuators, body finish, colors and legend printing.
The 8200 range is sub panel mount with a choice of actuator types and
terminal styles and orientation, these include push-on, solder and PCB
Both ranges have UL & CSA approval, as well as ENEC approval to the
new higher current rating.
This higher inductive rating further extends the applications for these two
families of switches into motor switching applications where the initial
switching current can be far higher than a resistive load.
