The MSM LA is rated 30 VDC and 250 VAC with a maximum switching current of 12 Amps. It features two isolated contacts for 1- or 2- pole switching functions. The switch provides mechanical indication in the ON and OFF positions. The actuator is raised above the switch housing in the resting OFF state and is recessed into the housing when depressed to switch ON. The distinct difference in position makes the mode of operation immediately evident. It also prevents inadvertent switching; for instance in the event persons or objects lean on the switch. The switch also offers ring illumination in red, green, or blue.
