High-reliability switches and keycaps for broadcast applications

July 31, 2012 // By Julien Happich
Luso Electronics Distribution now makes available a range of sample kits of high-reliability switches and keycaps, primarily aimed at broadcast applications, among others.

The products are manufactured by Veetronix, a maker of keyboard and panel-mount switches for various markets, including video and audio mixing-desk equipment and in numerous military and government applications. Luso is the exclusive UK and Ireland distributor for the Veetronix range. 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 suitable 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. These 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.
