C&K Components, an international supplier of tact switches, toggle and rocker switches, and smart card interconnect devices, has developed a latching pushbutton switch with a full 4.5 mm of travel. The economical PS Series switches feature latching contacts and are designed to work in conjunction with standard male commercial pin and socket connectors, 1.57 mm sq (0.062 sq) pins with 4.05 mm (0.16) spacing.
The single pull double throw (SPDT) PS Series pushbutton switch changes electrical state on the down stroke of the plunger and delivers on-off or on-on functionality.
The PS Series switches have been extensively designed into auto interior lighting, computer, appliance and flashlight applications.
“The PS Series latching pushbutton switches deliver a high-quality solution for price-sensitive applications,” said Vinny Acampora, Product Manager at C&K Components.
The RoHS-compliant PS Series switch has a mechanical operating life of 20K cycles, and features a contact rating of 1A @ 14VDC, a contact resistance of 100Mohms (maximum), an insulation resistance of 100Mohms (minimum), and a dielectric strength of 500VAC (minimum). The switchs operating temperature range is from -20°C to 70°C.
