Metal Line Switch Sports Luminous Ring

SCHURTER has enhanced its MSM Metal Line switch series with enhanced ring lighting for single colors red, green, yellow and blue, in addition to the recently introduced multi-color RGB versions. The optimized MSM momentary switch family still has the same diameter options of 16, 19, 22 and 30 mm. The housing, made of either robust stainless steel or aluminum also remains unchanged.


A new material that diffuses the LED light much more widely eliminates the dotted appearance from one LED to the next, providing a more homogeneous and consistent illumination. Additionally, the ratio of housing diameter to the width of the illumination ring has been redesigned, resulting in a more scaled appearance. Actuation force is 4.5 N.

TE connector, relay and filter solutions can help create a fine maze network of power-cabling to the lights needed for vertical farming. Their solutions are interchangeable, easy-to-install, and will last for years in variable humidity environments.


The MSM series offers seal protection and impact resistance of IP67 and IK07. The switches are suitable for use in harsh environments or in applications that require protection against vandalism. Switching current is 10A /100 mA at 250 Vac/ 30 Vdc. LED supply voltage is 24 Vdc and operating temperature range is -25°C to +85°C.


Pricing for the series starts at about $30 each/100. For further illumination, checkout the MSM Series datasheet, call 800-848-2600, and/or email [email protected].
