We are all facing the challenges of increased lead-times and costs due to materials and shipping. With products manufactured in Europe and China, it has been essential for us at Alan Butcher Components to manage our stock levels by working closely with our customers and understanding their needs. In turn, our suppliers have been keeping us up to date with production times and supply chain issues that could impact our orders. These relationships are important and developing them is a fundamental part of our business.
Alan Butcher Components stocks a variety of electronic and electro-mechanical components, with switch products being a large part of our portfolio. Ensuring sufficient stock to meet customer demands has been a significant focus over recent months, particularly for us on key products like push button switches. A push button switch is one of the most versatile and widely used switch products. Available in various sizes, colour, switch function and voltage the push button switch is suitable for a broad range of applications. Therefore, demand for this type of product has been high.
Our push button switch range includes:
Anti Vandal Push Button Switches – robust, stainless steel switches suitable for the most demanding environments. The LED illuminated versions come in 12V, 24V, 240V options with ring or dot illumination. Due to the variety of switch options available, these products are usually specific to customer requirements and therefore not always a stock option so please call us to discuss your application.
12mm Miniature Push Button Switches – these compact and colourful push buttons come under our anti-vandal switch range. They are rated to IP65, have a momentary switch action and are fitted with screw terminals or solder tabs. This miniature push button switch is available in blue, red, orange, green, yellow or white.
16mm Pushbutton Switches – DECA SwitchLab. These illuminated, modular push button switches offer the customer significant choice. The switches are made up of separate parts enabling you to select by switch shape (circular, square, rectangular), lamp type/voltage and lens style/colour. As with the anti-vandal switches, the variety of options means we do not stock the Deca products so please give us a call – 01258 456360.
