No need to consider temperature resistance of Multimec 3 and Unimec switches anymore.
Company MEC, Dutch producer of top-class push-button switches Multimec, Unimec and others comes with good news for developers and producers of electronics.
Well-known reliable push-buttons were in majority of cases available in so called standard version (L6, -40…+115°C) and in a high-temperature version (H9, -40…+160°C). From now on, all types will be gradually available only in a „high temperature“ version, which can be identified by „H9“marking in suffix. This applies to Multimec 3 and Unimec series (series Multimec 5 is already from the beginning only available in a high-temperature version).
The main „good news“ is, that these high-temperature types will be available for practically identical prices like standard types. That´s why, even in applications where you wouldn´t necessarily need that high thermal resistance, you can use this high-temp version and profit from unchanged price and potentially wider possibilities of usage of your product.
The most suitable type for you application can be easily found in the MEC catalogue (11MB).
