RoHS-compliant subminiature DIP switches

NKK Switches has launched a new series of RoHS-compliant subminiature DIP switches. The new JS series devices are available in four or eight positions.

Rounding out the company's DIP switch line, the new end-to-end stackable RoHS-compliant JS series devices incorporate several distinctive characteristics including both through-hole and surface-mount configurations. The JS series is rated at 25mA at 24Vdc.

They also feature a sliding twin contact mechanism with self-cleaning action to provide smooth actuation, high contact reliability and stable contact resistance. The contacts are gold plated and prevent oxidation and sulfide effect. The use of self extinguishing UL94V-0 certified material in the cover and base provides high arc resistance as well as high insulation resistance, said the company.

The through-hole JS version provides a terminal spacing that conforms to a standard 2.54-by-by-2.54mm PCB grid. The terminals are slanted to ensure secure PCB mounting and to prevent dislodging during wave soldering. They are available with top actuated or piano actuation options and are packaged standard in stick-tubes.

The surface-mount JS switches feature gull-wing terminals for secure PCB mounting and to prevent dislodging during vapor phase and infrared convection reflow soldering. The terminal spacing conforms to a standard PCB grid with either 2.54mm or 1.27mm. Extended and flush actuators are available. Packaging is either stick-tube or tape-and-reel depending on the switch configuration.

Pricing for the JS series is 56 cents each in quantities of 1,000. Delivery is from stock to eight weeks.
