FR series DIP switches from NKK Switches

NKK Switches expands its FR series of 10mm ultrathin DIP rotary switches with dial and metal shaft actuator options for through-hole devices.

Previously offered with screwdriver or plastic shaft actuators for through-hole devices, the FR series now provides dial-actuated versions that can be adjusted by hand or with a flat tipped screwdriver. Positions are clearly and numerically marked. The metal shaft option allows design engineers to choose from a variety of different-sized knobs and multiple colored tips.

The10mm DIP rotaries are said to deliver the industry's lowest profile with a 3.8mm body, which allows for close stacking of PCBs. The FR switches are available in real or complement codes, and decimal and hexadecimal configurations. Legends are highly visible for easy code setting. The electrical switching rating is 100mA at 5Vdc and the non-switching rating is 100mA at 50Vdc. Contact reliability is provided with a cam-activated movable contact and gold contacts. The detent mechanism provides crisp, positive action and delivers an accurate switch setting.

Available in right-angle or straight PC mount, the FR series features crimped terminals to provide secure PC mounting that prevents dislodging during soldering. This series is also available in SMT configurations. The binary-coded DIP rotary switches are RoHS compliant and the heat resistant resin materials are UL94V-0 rated and suited to lead-free solder processing applications.

Pricing is $1.89 each for 1,000 quantity. Delivery is from stock to five to six weeks.
