RoHS-compliant slide switches

NKK Switches has introduced its new SM series of RoHS-compliant slide switches that give designers a choice of side-by-side or end-to-end mounting in space-constrained applications.

Measuring 10-by-2.5-by-6.4mm, the compact dimensions allow the ultra-miniature SM series slide switches to be used in tight dimensional applications. Terminals conform to standard 2.54-by-2.54mm center-to-center spacing, allowing standard PC-board mounting in either side-by-side or end-to-end design configurations. The terminals are insert molded to lock out flux, solvents and other contaminants.

The SM series offers a single pole/double throw configuration with an ON-ON circuit. Electrical capacity is 500mA at 12Vdc. This series is rated for UL94V-0.

The SM switches also feature NKK's twin sliding contact mechanism that ensures self-cleaning with every actuation. In addition, this mechanism provides smooth actuation and extremely high-contact reliability, said the company.

A detent mechanism provides positive feedback to indicate circuit status. Visible indication of position is accomplished with a spot on top of the red actuator. The actuator also has a window on the side to allow an angled view of switching status.

Pricing for the SM series is $1.89 each in quantities of 1,000. Delivery is from stock to eight weeks.
