APEM Components Inc., Haverhill, Mass., introduces its IH Hall Effect pushbutton. This pushbutton switch features a 12mm diameter bushing with a low behind-panel depth. APEM’s IH series offers one of a kind Hall Effect sensor technology for a long lifecycle.


APEM has created to version of the IH series: the IHL and the IHS. Both the IHL and HIS offer a long life contact less switching of 5 million operations. It is sealed to IP67. The dome shaped actuator is available in eight colors.


The IHS Series is a rugged switch for harsh environments. The IHS is recommended for applications where the switch is often activated. For example, in applications where positioning the load is critical: material handling, loaders, lifts, trucks, buckets and shovels. The IHL series is used in applications where a simple On /Off control is not sufficient and where a linear output is preferable. Typical use of IHL are applications where operators need to control motion and speed. This switch is ideal for control valves or variable speed drives and can be used in various applications including industrial controls, heavy-duty equipment and handling.


APEM also has introduced its ES emergency stop pushbutton. This pushbutton switch features a 22mm diameter bushing with a 34mm round actuator. APEM’s ES series offers a more robust and ruggedized solution than its predecessor the A01ES/A02ES. 


APEM’s emergency stop has a diameter 34 mm red anodized actuator, designed for heavy-duty applications. Features IK10 impact resistance, IP65 frontal sealing and EN 60947-5-1 certification; the switch also offers a push-pull ON-ON function. The ES switches are excellent fit for military, agricultural, oil, food, industrial, and HVAC applications.


The ES Emergency Stop series includes; Metal product with diameter 22 mm bushing (market standard) , 100, 000 cycle mechanical life, IK10 Impact resistance, no axis deformation even if exposed to major shocks, sealed to IP65 by O-ring and membrane, lower behind-panel depth, locked/unlocked status indicator, customizable actuator and bezel (color, shape, marking) and straight PC or solder lug terminals.
