NKK Switches unveiled the lightweight ultra-miniature B series and subminiature G series of its illuminated toggle switches that are designed for front panel interfaces and handheld devices.

The toggle actuators of both G series are manufactured of a clear polyamide, allowing the LED color to fully illuminate through the entire actuator. LED choices include red, green, amber and bi-color red/green illumination. The B series also features a patent-pending bushing that is fully illuminated as well.

Rated for 0.4VA at 28Vac/dc maximum, both the B series and G series are available in single pole maintained circuit options of ON-ON and ON-OFF-ON. These devices can be specified in straight PC, right angle or vertical mount terminations. Both devices feature NKK's sliding twin crossbar contact mechanism, which is said to ensure a positive and smooth detent, as well as increased contact and logic-level reliability. These switches are process compatible.

Both series offer a mechanical life rating of 100,000 operations minimum. The B series provides an electrical life rating of 50,000 operations minimum and the G series provides an electrical life rating of 100,000 operations minimum.

The G series measures 0.70(height)-by-0.45(depth)cm with a toggle actuator length of 0.38cm. The B series offers dimensions of 1.31(h)-by-0.88(depth)cm. The illuminated toggle measures 0.63cm in length with the illuminated bushing measuring 0.27cm.

Pricing for the illuminated toggle series starts at $3.29 each in quantities of 1,000. Delivery is from stock to seven weeks.
