Arrow’s range of illuminated and programmable switches suit broadcast and audio visual systems
Arrow has announced the availability of a broad range of switches ideally suited to the requirements of audio visual and broadcast equipment. The range of illuminated switches from manufacturers such as NKK (Nikkai) Switches and C&K Components provide a variety of colour options, while programmable devices offer the flexibility to display application-specific text or even moving images.
Among the NKK switches available from Arrow is the HB2 series of subminiature pushbutton devices offering full-face illumination with a choice of red/green or red/yellow bicolour LEDs and the UB and UB2 series of low-profile pushbuttons. The UB series features bright and superbright LEDs and has a body height of just 10mm, while the UB2 series offers a wide selection of illumination effects with single and bicolour, one- or six-element LEDs.
The C&K Components family of illuminated switches from Arrow incorporates the 8020 and 8060 series of momentary pushbuttons, the K5V and K5AT series of tactile devices, and a variety of key switches from the K6, K12 and Digitast ranges. Arrow also offers the C&K ELUM, a right angle latching pushbutton with central LED illumination and a low PCB mounting height.
For enhanced flexibility in broadcast systems, Arrow stocks the NKK SmartSwitch family of software-controlled pushbutton switches. Featuring integrated OLED and LCD displays, these switches can be programmed to display a wide variety of text and moving images.
