SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. ‚â€“ NKK Switches announces the availability of the GB Series of ultra-subminiature pushbutton switches with fully illuminated plungers.
The GB Series‚â€™ fully illuminated clear polyamide plunger is designed to produce a high visibility of status indication and is available with red, green or amber LED illumination. The series‚â€™ ultra-miniature size allows for high density mounting and their light weight makes them ideal for handheld devices.
Featuring a completely sealed body construction to prevent contact contamination, the GB Series of switches also allow for time- and money-saving automated soldering and cleaning. The insert-molded terminals lock out flux, solvents and other contaminants, guaranteeing a long mechanical and electrical life of 50,000 operations minimum. NKK has also incorporated its award-winning STC contact mechanism into these switches, which provides them with a smooth, positive detent mechanism, increased contact stability and unparalleled logic-level reliability.
Terminal spacing on the GB Series is 2.54mm x 2.54mm ‚â€“ conforming to standard PC board grid spacing, and their round terminals facilitate through-hole mounting. The new series is available in an SPDT momentary circuit configuration with straight, right angle or vertical PC mounting terminals. The current rating is 0.4VA maximum @ 28V AC/DC maximum.
