APEM introduces the first in its newest series by MEC Switches: the low-profile Ultramec 6C. The Ultramec 6C is an excellent low-profile pushbutton option for handheld devices or in applications that are limited in both space and height. With significantly smaller dimensions than the previous range of Multimec switches, the new Ultramec 6C tactile switch features an 8x8mm footprint, maximum height of 2.5mm and standard J-bend terminals. Environmentally sealed up to IP67 and offering a long lifecycle of 3 million actuations, the Ultramec 6C offers the highest technical specifications all wrapped up in a small package.
The Ultramec 6C’s specifically designed floating cap option features a round, concave keycap for easy alignment of the PCB and front panel and comes in 5 color options, making it an excellent solution under overlay and custom caps.
The simple design and smooth feel of the Ultramec 6C creates an ideal, low-profile switch solution in demanding environments and in a large variety of applications such as Test and Measurement, Medical, Food Processing and in various remote control applications.
