electronica 2010, ROMFORD, ENGLAND & THOUSAND PALMS, USA: Elektron Technology, owner of the Arcolectric, Bulgin and Sifam electronics manufacturing brands, announced the launch of Arcolectric’s new APB, ALB and ALS ranges of 22mm industrial switches.
Available this month in pushbutton, short lever, long lever and key form-factors, Arcolectric’s newest switch range delivers the high build quality and durability that customers have come to expect from one of the UK’s most established electronics manufacturing brands.
Arcolectric’s APB, ALB and ALS ranges, designed primarily for control stations in the electrical industry, are designed for industry-standard 22mm mounts. All switches in these ranges have a modular construction, allowing them to easily be ganged together, and comply with EN418 regulations for emergency stops. All are rated for single and three-phase power supplies, (220/240V at 3amps and 380/415V at 1.5A), and come with the option of 24V dc, 120V ac or 240 ac indicator-lights.
With this product launch Elektron Technology is also taking the opportunity to introduce itself to the wider electronics community. Elektron Technology is the global technology company behind respected manufacturing brands: Arcolectric, Bulgin and Sifam. Elektron Technology builds on the strengths, skills and experience of its three manufacturing brands and aims to present a service that is greater than the sum of its parts.
All three brands are capable of manufacturing and assembling complex, modular electronics and mechanical systems. Now Elektron Technology will not only provide high-level, innovative technology consultancy but also deliver a turn-key design and manufacturing service from conceptual development through to volume manufacture. This promises to pass considerable economies to its customers.
“This is a unique proposition for the global electronics design and manufacturing industry’, comments John Wilson, MD, Elektron Technology. “Far too few companies exist that can offer this complete solutions based service. Elektron Technology is therefore filling a substantial gap in the market. Elektron is able to provide innovative new products with a reduced time to market, utilising its global manufacturing footprint.”
