C&K Components Inc. has launched a family of miniature snap-acting switches that provide up to 100,000 operating cycles. The TFS Series switches feature a maximum actuator operating force of 200g and a minimum release force of 10g.

"The TFS Series snap-acting switches come in two models, one has .020 by .187 quick connect terminals and the other model has molded in wire terminals. Both are sealed to IP ratings. The quick connect series is IP40 and the lead wire series is IP67. Sealing makes it a viable solution for protection against dust particles or fluids, including perspiration and water," stated Vinny Acampora, product manager for C&K Components.

The RoHS-compliant TFS Series subminiature switch features a footprint of 10.30 x 33mm with a height of 16.10mm, including the actuator. Available in some circuitry configurations including SPDT (single pole, double throw), SPST NO (single pole, single throw, normally open) and SPST NC (single pole, single throw, normally closed). The durable miniature switch series is constructed with a 94VO plastic actuator, cover and base with silver alloy movable contacts, the company said. The TFS also has the option for a stainless steel lever.
