One of Europe’s leading switch manufacturers, knitter-switch, has published a four page shortform to outline the company’s wide range of illuminated pushbutton switches, encoders, LED indicators, and membrane keypads.

The new shortform provides brief product specifications and also points the reader to the relevant parts of the 2013 general catalog which was introduced at electronica 2012 in Munich.

knitter-switch makes no less than 15 types of illuminated pushbutton switches designed for a variety of applications where LED illumination is used to provide information to the user. Many are available with single or multi colour LEDs.

The LP14 Series, for example, is designed for use in a wide range of applications including audio/visual consoles, test and measuring instruments and industrial controls.

LP14 Series switches can be illuminated by up to four LEDs – independent of switch function - in a variety of colours including red, green, blue, yellow, orange and white. Users have the facility to insert a legend (max size 12.8 x 12.8mm) and the choice of single, double, tri and four colour options.

Other products detailed within the shortform include front-panel mounted encoders and LED indicators available with single and multi-colour LEDs as well as membrane keypads.

A wide range of standard DIL, TACT, Rotary Encoder, Toggle and Push-button Switches are available direct from knitter-switch and a number of distributors throughout Europe. Samples are usually available on next day delivery. For more information visit
