Addressing high-density mounting applications, NKK Switches has expanded its SK series of miniature and sub-miniature PCB-mount, keylock switches. The SK switches - for low-voltage, low-current, logic level circuits - can be used in the industrial, commercial, aerospace, computer, peripheral, instrumentation, and security sectors, NKK said.

To ensure crisp actuation and accurate setting, SK series switches feature a positive detent. Contacts are self-wiping, which provides switching reliability, said NKK. Switches are available in single-pole configurations and with three- or five-position maintained circuits.

All SK series switches are rated 0.4VA at 28V. They are designed for use in automated wave soldering and washing. A gasket between the base and housing supplies added protection for the key lock tumblers, while insert-molded terminals seal out flux, solvents, and other contaminants.

The sub-miniature SK series switches are process compatible with a completely sealed construction. The angle of throw is 45. The sub-miniatures are available with straight- or right-angle terminals, and the 2.54-by-2.54mm pin spacing conforms to standard PCB grid spacing.

The SK miniature keylocks, available with straight or right-angle PCB-mount bracketed terminals, feature a 12mm, nickel-plated bushing. These low-security keylocks can be configured with momentary or maintained circuits, in single-pole or double-pole models, and with double-throw or three-throw circuits.

Pricing for the SK13AEG13 starts at $7.37 each in quantities of 500. Delivery is from stock to seven weeks.
