CW 22mm Flush Mount Switches

Since the Covid 19 pandemic, the need for contact-free operation and control has increased. To meet this growing need, APEM offers a contactless version of the CW series switch developed by IDEC. This touchless (no-touch) switch series, moving your hand is now enough to activate a function or a machine. This reduces the risk of contamination where strict hygienic conditions are required.

Flush Mount Switches for a NO TOUCH application.

The stylish, compact and space-saving switches and pilot devices offered by APEM are a NO-TOUCH concept. The innovative two-step locking lever integrated with a guard provides a higher level of safety. The low projection from the panel surface reduces the possibility of unexpected activation or operator damage. The CW series adds a sleek and stylish image to the panel with black or metallic bezels. The shortest depth behind the panel in its class contributes to reducing machine and control panel size.
