Industrial switches, commonly used in the control panel and machine build applications, are now available from IDEC with Push-In termination technology. This option is available on the YW and HW series, which are your “standard industrial style switches” and the CW series (flush mount series). Each of these three series is for 22mm mounting and available as a push button (with and without illumination), selector switch, key selector switch and pilot light/indicators. Over the past years, we have seen wire termination technology slowly migrate away from the traditional screw and move towards “screw-less” terminations. This was first seen on the simple DIN rail terminal and then onto other hardware such as PLCs, relay sockets and more.Initially, this change to screw-less was done with “spring clamp”; however, this still required a screwdriver to open the spring to allow the cable to be inserted. More recently, the spring clamp has taken a step sideways and the “push-in termination” has taken the lead. Simple, Safe and Smart, a tag line given by IDEC, referred to as S3 termination. With the PUSH-IN connection technology, the force on the conductor is generated by a pressure spring made of high-quality stainless steel. The spring sits in a cage and is automatically opened upon connection and only released when a release tool is used. Time is money… the amount of time spent on wiring is reduced, using this push-in principle, a recent study demonstrated a saving of up to 55% while providing a high conductor retention force and complete way of handling multiple conductor types.

PUSH-IN technology guarantees optimal contact security and ease of handling, even in demanding applications.SwitchYW series (22 mm industrial switch family) – this focused range delivers all of the key products for the industrial automation market, including push button, illuminated push button, key and selector switch. It may deliver a cost-effective solution, but never compromises on quality.Where style is a must for product design, as well as delivering performance, you can’t go wrong with the CW series (22mm flush design industrial switch). This series is used within medical appliances, the food industry and in consumer applications, where aesthetics and reliability are the key to success. HW series (22mm industrial switch) – this contains IDEC’s largest portfolio of switches and actuators for the industrial automation market – whether this is rotary switches, selector switches, combined rotary & push-button, four or five position selectors – the list is endless for countless applications.
