Irvine, CA – December 19, 2012
Staco Systems, the preeminent provider of dependable, high precision Human-to-Machine Interface (HMI) solutions, announced today that their Series S200 4-pole switch was selected for use on fire control systems upgrades for the Canadian Forces LAV III.

Staco Systems Series 200 (S200) switch represents an integration of 4-pole switching capabilities, high LED lighting performance, and Military grade reliability in a subcompact package.

The S200 is the lightest weight (11 grams) and has the shortest behind-panel depth (18.87 mm) of any switch on the market. Its crisp legend presentation provides excellent visibility in the harshest viewing environments and its generous .560 inch square display area provides wider viewing angles assuring improved readability in cross- cockpit viewing conditions. It is available in all MIL-PRF-22885 & MIL-STD-3009 display formats and colors and its modular optical design allows easy customization of the display lighting (display style, color and brightness) to meet any user application.
