1.2mm-thin single-sided switch

SMK has added a 1.2mm-thin single-sided type switch for its JSS slide switch series.

The company is offering a thinner version of the JSS slide switch series to help prevent unintended operation of equipment by using the property of momentary action (spring-back system). The optimally designed structure reduces the height by approximately 40 percent compared to our previous equivalent switch (1.8mm thick), to a mere 1.2mm, claimed to be the thinnest momentary slide switches. Furthermore, the external dimensions are smaller by approximately 40 percent than our previous equivalent switch, allowing downsized equipment design. Its operating life is touted to be the longest in the industry for this type of switch at 100,000 cycles, increasing operability and reliability of equipment.

The slide switch suits portable applications such as mobile phones and digital portable audio products.

Sample price is 100 yen each.
