IP67 Switch from Panasonic Industry Offers Resistor-based Detection of Failure Modes

Panasonic ASQM

May 17, 2021

An addition to the successful ASQM micro-switch series, Panasonic Industry introduces the IP67 ASQMR switch with resistor-based detection of failure modes. 

The new diagnostic ASQMR IP67 micro switch contains two chip resistors as voltage dividers. This feature facilitates the detection of the failure modes lead wire break or short circuits – and thus prevents the application from experiencing a serious failure or possibly causing severe damage. Setting different output voltage levels for normal vs. failure mode, the new ASQMR is the most compact resistor-equipped switch available on the market today.

Double clipping sliding contact design provides excellent shock- and vibration resistance.

For maximum freedom of choice, the product line contains solder or fork terminals as well as wire leads type. An array of levers  effectively facilitates use in many applications.

From locks, latches and lids in automotive constructions to industrial emergency and safety devices or smart-home or building-automation applications – the ASQMR “mini-switch” is the component of choice for everyone seeking that extra bit of next-gen component safety and long-term reliability.

  • Contact form SPST
  • Soldering or fork terminal
  • Silent operation with sliding contact
  • Long stroke
  • Excellent shock and vibration resistance
  • Waterproof – IP67 degree of protection
  • 2012 chip resistor (0.5W 70°C)
  • Insertion lever with high reset force
  • Smallest diagnostic switch on the market
