Available from Aerospace and Defence Products , P5 alternate action switches match the P1, P3 and P8 momentary action push button models for mixed function with common panel appearance. Panels can now be designed with both alternate and momentary action switches and have uniform panel appearance.

The P5 features alternate action in the same push button and housing configuration as the momentary P1 and P3 and as a bonus, the P5 requires less behind the panel space than the P1 and P3 momentary versions. Push and the P5 switch turns "on" and push again to switch the P5 "off". 

To ensure the operator is clearly aware the switch mode has been executed positive tactile feedback is featured. The button returns to the original position after each actuation and to guard against front panel splash and dirt, P5 switches series is sealed at the button with OTTO’s patented "rolling sleeve"principle.

The terminals of the alternate action switches are sealed with epoxy, providing a seal against flux during wiring and behind panel dirt and moisture, the combination of sealing provides smooth operation over a wide temperature range.

Watertight sealing to IP68S is available and a vandal resistant style is available in the P5-V series.

Also available are shrouded buttons, custom housings, contact configurations and materials to suit specific application requirements.

Aerospace and Defence Products also provide custom button engraving with epoxy ink
