illuminated switches with two LEDs

CIT Relay & Switch offers a new series of ultra-subminiature bi-color illuminated switches that incorporate two independent LEDs in any color combination of red, green, yellow or blue. The surface-mount NL series switches with a 2mm height are designed for use with other low-profile, surface-mount components in space-constrained applications.

The NL series offers an electrical rating of 50mA at 24Vdc, contact resistance of less than 50 m? initially, insulation resistance of greater than 100 M? initially, and dielectric strength of 100Vrms minimum. These switches offer an electrical life of 30,000 cycles typically. With a 160 gram force solid detent tactile feedback, the NL series is available with an actuator travel of 0.5mm 0.2mm. The LED viewing angle is 150.

All materials in the NL series are RoHS compliant. Both the actuator and the base are constructed of liquid crystal polymer with a Nylon 9T housing. Contacts are silver-plated phosphor bronze with silver-plated brass terminals.

These NL series switches may be used in medical, consumer, handheld and remote applications, as well as instrumentation, computer, computer peripheral, camera products and other applications that call for subminiature switching with illumination.

The NL series switches are priced at less than $1 in quantities of 5,000. Delivery is four to six weeks.
