Posted by Katie Rose on Aug 26th 2015

The AV series is a wide range of vandal resistant pushbutton switches that offers the same robustness and aesthetics you’ve come to expect from APEM. Tested and qualified for impact resistance and sealing - IP and IK levels, these stainless steel switches withstand all types of adversity (rain, frost, UV, vandalism) while offering a modern and stylish design.

For increased operator safety, APEM’s AV series includes 3 new models approved to EN 61058-1 (NF/CE standard), that can switch a 250VAC current. The EN61058-1 approval is essential in all applications linked to the operation of consumer equipment such as light fixtures and devices.

The design of the AV 250V models has been specifically adapted to meet the requirements of the EN61058-1 standard:

-Minimal distance between contacts and housing

-Adapted case length to ensure correct creepage distance

-Self-extinguishing and/or flame retardant material with high insulating power

The new AV 250V combines consumer safety and protection with a compact, stylish design.
