Scottsdale, Ariz. NKK Switches now offers its IS series SmartSwitch with RGB LED technology, which is said to allow design engineers to create virtually any illumination with one switch.
A key feature of the RGB illumination is the quality of red, green and blue LEDs used in the packaging, said the company. As a result, the high-quality LEDs provide excellent color matching, thus enabling designers to create customized control panels with project specific colors including RGB white. The RGB LED option also allows for low power use and low heat.
The SmartSwitch can be programmed to display an infinite variety of text, graphics, or moving images. In addition, the small STN SmartDisplay module, complementing the programmable SmartSwitch, is available in two styles. The liquid crystal display (LCD) provides a wide, high-contrast viewing area of 13.9 x 10.6 mm with a 36 x 24 pixel resolution to maximize clarity. As one of the industry's smallest dot matrix LCD displays, the SmartDisplay may be used for compact electronic devices that require the display of graphics, text or moving images in space-constrained locations.
Designed for applications requiring a user interface, the SmartSwitch is said to simplify and improve complex, multi-decision operations by enabling industry-specific text and graphics with real-time sequencing. Applications include industrial control panels, communication systems, audio-video broadcast workstations and simulation equipment.
