X 30mm) rectangular cap with additional viewing
area for increased legend capacity. Flexibility in
voltages, termination, sealing, circuit configurations
and cap lighting provides substantial design options.
Additionally, the ability to incorporate NEXSYS
Component Technology in the indicator or switch body
further enhances custom configuration opportunities.
Captive mounting lugs and reversible
mounting sleeve accommodates lighted
overlay panel and panel thicknesses from
.032" to .187" (0.81mm to 4.74mm).
Full complement of lighting colors,
lighting types, and dimming
options available, including 4-way
legend splits. Excellent off-angle
viewing, sunlight readability and
low level uniformity.
Termination flexibility including the
standard keyed solderless connector
plug for ease of installation or the
reduced size turret for behind the panel depth limitations.
Body options include indicators and
1-4 pole switches rated to 7.5 amps.
Optional NEXSYS components can

Avionics Interface Solutions
NEXSYS is the newest brand from Applied Avionics, manufacturers of the industry leading VIVISUN pushbutton switches and indicators. NEXSYS products are
focused on providing avionics interface solutions, including the versatile NEXSYS Component Technology and the new ARINC 429 Signal Converter. NEXSYS
components can provide robust behind-the panel interface capabilities via a NEXSYS Module or can be incorporated internally into a VIVISUN illuminated switch
or indicator body. NEXSYS components provide substantial design customization opportunities and the entire NEXSYS product line has been designed and tested
in accordance with DO-160 and equivalent MIL-SPEC standards.
NEXSYS Component Technology
NEXSYS Component Technology includes over 1,000,000 combinations of mix-and-match integrated electronics such as electronic latching flip flops, edge-detecting
pulse timers, ARINC 429 signal converters, Boolean logic array, solid-state relays, electronic rotary components, voltage sensors, diodes and terminal blocks.
The NEXSYS Module
offers three mounting
options; in-line
harness boot, single
bracket mount and an
M81714/5-5 Type 1
rail mounting system
that holds multiple
NEXSYS Modules in
each rail.
