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.

Fierce AI Week

Register today for Fierce AI Week - a free virtual event | August 10-12

Advances in AI and Machine Learning are adding an unprecedented level of intelligence to everything through capabilities such as speech processing and image & facial recognition. An essential event for design engineers and AI professionals, Engineering AI sessions during Fierce AI Week explore some of the most innovative real-world applications today, the technological advances that are accelerating adoption of AI and Machine Learning, and what the future holds for this game-changing technology.


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].
