APEM Unveils Smallest Single-Axis Paddle Switch | Construction News

APEM has introduced the newest addition to its single-axis paddle series of switches: the small and sleek BL series.

Following the recent launch of the BH series paddle, the new BL series features the same new design, but in a smaller package, measuring just 1.9 in. (48 mm) above panel.

The paddles' compact footprint allows closer group installation, perfect in applications such as vehicle arm rests, remote-control portable boxes, and agricultural applications.

The BL series' sculpted, ergonomic handles are available in five color features and with a removable, soft-touch rubber or plastic insert that remains secure during operation. The choice of material provides the benefit of increased comfort to the operator.

BH and BL series paddles are IP67 sealed, tested to global environmental standards, and currently rated for up to 10 million cycles. The BL series is available in analog or PWM outputs and 5V operation.

Like the BH series, the BL series paddles offer smooth and precise finger operations in mild to extreme environments.
