New pushbutton: small, refined and robust

Small, refined, but still robust: That's how the new pushbutton of our mYnitron series for 16.2 mm mounting holes can be described. SCHLEGEL made a variant for the mYnitron series that is especially suitable for demanding requirements.

The contact element and the plunger for the YKT pushbutton are a new development. Consequently, it was possible to increase the travel to 1.8 mm and to slightly modify the pressure point. The haptics was optimised and is now even more perceptible, so that even an operator wearing gloves feels the activation point very clearly.

The higher degree of protection of IP65/67/69K and the longer lifetime of 1 million switching cycles are ideal for applications with demanding requirements. Furthermore, the mounting depth is reduced to 14 mm because of the PCB connection pins.

The YKT pushbuttons have passed the following tests: vibration resistance test acc. to IEC 60068-2-6 at 5 g, 10 to 500 Hz; shock resistance test acc. to IEC 60068-2-27 at 50 g and 11 ms, and salt spray resistance test acc. to IEC 60068-2-11. The NO contact can be operated at a nominal voltage of 35V and a nominal current of 100 mA.

The front bezel is black, while the colour of the pushing surface can be chosen from black, white, red, green, blue and yellow. A variant with Faston terminals is planned for mid of 2022.
