Both IHL and IHS pushbuttons offer a long life of 5 million operations.

APEM Components has introduced its IH Hall-Effect pushbutton. This pushbutton switch features a 12mm diameter bushing with a low behind-panel depth. APEM's IH series offers one-of-a-kind Hall-Effect sensor technology for a long cycle life. APEM has created two versions of the IH series: the IHL and the IHS. Both the IHL and IHS offer a long-life contactless switching of 5 million operations. The switches are sealed to IP67. The dome shaped actuator is available in eight colors. The IHS Series is a ruggedized switch for harsh environments in which the switch is activated often such as applications where positioning a load is critical as in material handling, loaders, lift trucks, buckets, and shovels. The IHL series is well suited to applications in which a simple on-off control is not sufficient and where a linear output is preferable. Typical use of IHL includes applications where operators need to control motion and speed. This switch is suited for control valves or variable speed drives and is useful in applications including industrial controls, heavy-duty equipment, and handling. APEM
