Control components A range of ultra-flat control components, RAFIX 22FS, reportedly has a short behind-panel depth that allows the components to be mounted on the same printed circuit board as short-travel tact switches, keys or other components, simplifying design and assembly and saving costs. With a 9.2-mm mounting depth, the components, in such applications as automation and industrial control, now require one PCB rather than the two needed with earlier components that have a 1.5- to 2-in. behind-panel depth, the co. notes.Actuators are fastened to the front panel with a threaded ring in a 22.3-mm-dia cutout to IEC 947. A cast-on collar seal with an integrated membrane layer resists moisture.
