MEC extender – and you´re a level higher

We already know, that Switches MEC Unimec switch in up to eight ways and also that they´re available as momentary or alternate (latching). UNIMEC switches feature perhaps only one “disadvantage” – that on the same PCB no other higher components can be used (which would be higher than the switch). If you´re satisfied with the UNIMEC features, but despite that you cannot use them in your application right for their (low) height, we have for you a solution. It is based on usage of the „16270 extender“. In combination with any right-angle cap of the 16300 series and with a prolonged bezel 16324 (16325,16326) we gain by this combination a switch higher in 4.5 mm. This simple solution is also suitable for cases don´t have high components on a PCB but from any reason it´s advantageous, when some room will be left between a front panel and a PCB (for cooling, …)
