Scottsdale, Ariz. Ė NKK Switches' KP Series of illuminated miniature pushbutton switches provides design engineers with many options that enhance and complete front panels needing an innovative and modern look and feel.
The KP Series devices are available with built-in RGB LED illumination. This option allows engineers to utilize the full color spectrum to create unlimited color combinations. An additional illumination option is Super Bright red/green built-in LEDs, which can be combined to produce amber. In both configurations, the switches' design ensures that illumination is evenly diffused throughout.
The series' square caps have a clear lens with a white diffuser and are offered in flat, sculptured or home key styles, and in three common sizes of 17.4mm, 15mm and 12mm. A rectangular switch cap shape can also be specified. To facilitate adding legends, caps are constructed to accommodate laser etching and film inserts. Custom legends and additional value added assemblies are available upon request from NKK Switches.
KP Series pushbuttons can also be specified with tactile or non tactile with silent actuation or with tactile and audible feedback. Engineers can also choose between two stroke travel and actuation force combinations.
Applications include instruments, control panels and custom keyboards in the medical, test, industrial, aerospace, military, security and broadcast industries.
