Carling's pushbutton switches feature a wide variety of termination types, bushings, actuators, and ratings


Carling's Pushbutton Switches Carling Technologies has long been known for the quality and performance of its switches. The Carling line of pushbutton switches features a wide variety of termination types, bushings, actuators and ratings.

The 641-Series: this single or double pole switch is the most compact in the pushbutton switch line. Featuring a rugged metal construction, self-cleaning contacts and stiff actuation force (3-3 1/2 lbs. typical), these switches are ideal for most “foot pedal” type applications. These alternate action switches fit a standard .500” dia. mounting hole, and have termination options including solder lug, wire lead, and PC.

The 110-Series: this offering provides a compact yet rugged solution to general-purpose switch needs. Alternate action, metal construction and stiff (6-8 lb.) actuation force have combined to make this switch a pillar in the music industry and audiovisual markets. This versatile switch is available in maintained and momentary circuits with a variety of termination options to choose from.

The 170/172-Series: the 170/172 series is a single pole, high amperage switch suitable for shallow back panel applications. These switches are momentary action with a relatively light actuation force of 2.5 lbs. Other features include a slow-make, slow-break contact mechanism and a robust 10 A 250 VAC, 15 A 125 VAC electrical rating.

The P-Series: these switches feature the highest amperage rating available for our Pushbutton line, up to 20A 125VAC, which, along with its heavy actuation force (3-5 lbs. typical) makes this switch ideal for use as a “foot-pedal” switch. The P Series has become a mainstay for canister vacuum cleaner applications and its metal bushing and plunger construction enables this alternate action switch to withstand the rigors of most any heavy- duty pushbutton application.
