Plunger with or without point illumination

19. Jul 2011 | As a useful addition to our pushbutton caps, we also offer plungers for short-stroke pushbuttons. These are designed for keypad applications where full illumination is not required. These lower cost plungers can be freely combined with the pushbutton caps and signal indicators from the MENTOR range of keypad components.

Two plunger variants are available: an illuminated plunger offering up to four illuminated point options and one variant designed solely for pushbutton operation without illumination. The illuminated plungers are designed for applications with CHIP LEDs. A large number of states can be signalled using dual or RGB LEDs. The plungers are available in two sizes 15 x 15 mm and 19 x 19 mm and two heights 12.5 mm and 9.7 mm and can be combined with 1254.x series pushbuttons. All plungers have integral anti-twist protection to ensure reliable component insertion in automated assembly processes.
