Supplier benefits

 

We have been designing and manufacturing control switches for 56 years. Our RF Design Engineering capabilities, onsite A2LA Accredited Testing Laboratory and computer production line testing ensure the highest manufacturing standards. We also have corporate certifications including Global Recognised Aerospace Quality System Accreditation (AS9100-2009) and North American FAA Repair Station Accreditation (Far Part 145), and product complaint certifications including ATEX/IECEx and FAA/PMA. Our vertically integrated manufacturing continues to supply and satisfy clients across the globe.

 

P9 Dome series

 

The P9 Dome Series switch has a similar shape and style to our P7-D series pushbutton, but it differentiates itself with its plastic housing construction and the option of a shorting bar contact arrangement in addition to the standard double break. It is also possible to tailor the function and form of the P9 by opting for either a raised button or flush button profile and standard or small bezel versions. This flexibility allows the P9 to be installed in different applications for use in a range of working environments.

 

Robust and long-lasting

 

When combined with the excellent electrical and mechanical performance and shallow panel depth, the P9 Dome Series is capable of operating in the most severe conditions. Its robust build is aided by a moisture-proof and dust-tight sealed construction, which has an electrical life of 25,000 operations for inductive loads found in most electronic devices and resistive loads common in electrical products and other applications that produce heat and motion. You can also add a watertight seal using the intuitive part builder on our website.

 

Common uses

 

The P9 Dome Series is designed for use in circumstances where a quality-precision, rugged and sleek pushbutton switch is required. Applications include panels, computers, control grips and heavy equipment. The snap action variant of the P9 also provides positive tactile feedback, so the operator knows when the switch is depressed. All our P9 models deliver low contact resistance due to their unique design and high contact pressure makeup. It is also possible to opt for either PC Pin, 0.100” Quick Connect and Solder Termination options.

 

Part builder

 

We understand that you need a P9 switch to suit your specific requirements. That is why we have the P9 Catalogue PDF, Standard Switch Guide and Pushbutton Switch Selection Guide to inform and educate you about our industry-leading pushbutton switches. We have also developed a part builder so you can build a bespoke P9 switch tailored for your applications. You can select between different terminal styles, circuit forms, switch actions, case and bezel colours and button colours.
