APEM’s quality system proves its NATO-listed manufacturing excellence

APEM’s range of switches is rigorously tested to MIL-DTL standards to ensure they meet the demanding requirements of military applications. MIL-DTL is a comprehensive set of standards developed by the Department of Defense (DOD) to test the durability, reliability, and performance of components used in military equipment.

Numerous products assert MIL-DTL certification without having been subjected to this strict evaluation. To confirm the authenticity of such claims, it is advisable to request the specific testing procedures and their outcomes. At APEM, our products are tested for MIL-DTL compliance and re-tested at every update of the standard.


APEM’s switches are tested to both MIL-DTL-3950G and MIL-DTL-83731D standards.

  • MIL-DTL-3950G specifically focuses on environmentally sealed toggle switches,
  • MIL-DTL-83731D covers both sealed and unsealed toggle switches.
