Luso Electronics Distribution has announced availability of a range of sample kits of high-reliability switches and keycaps, primarily aimed at broadcast applications, among others.
The products are manufactured by Veetronix, for whom Luso is the exclusive UK and Ireland distributorrange. Veetronix is a specialist manufacturer of highly-reliable keyboard and panel-mount switches for various markets, including video and audio mixing-desk equipment and in numerous defence and government applications.
Among the devices available are ’07′ and ’08′ type switches featuring lock-in alignment leads and sealed-reed contacts. The low-profile 08 switches are ideal for rack-mount panels in particular. A variety of keycaps sizes and colours are available for these switches, including solid caps and re-legendable types, with RGB LED illumination also available.
The highly-reliable devices feature a ‘unique’ hermetically-sealed design ensuring that no moving parts touch the contacts, preventing air, dust, moisture or gases from contaminating the switch and therefore ensuring reliability, says the company.
