C&K's PWR series handles larger size relay than tact switch

Keywords:PWR Series? power pushbutton switch?

C&K Components has developed a momentary power pushbutton switch that can handle 240V line power directly as a main switch.

The PWR Series pushbutton switch features redundant double-break contacts for dishwashers and other white good applications. The Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS)-compliant and IP65-sealed switches provide excellent tactile feel, similar to a tact switch or a rubber dome switch.

Designed in an SMD package, the PWR Series pushbutton switch enables single step processing onto SMD boards, and can latch a larger-sized relay than a typical tactile switch is designed to handle. The momentary, single-pole single throw (SPST) PWR Series switch delivers an extended operating life of 100,000 mechanical cycles and is surface-mount solder process compatible.

The PWR Series pushbutton switches accommodate a voltage range of 20VAC to 250VAC, and a current range of 10mA to 2A, with a maximum contact resistance of 100m. The PWR Series handles inrush loads up to 7A. The nominal operating force is 7N and operating travel is 1.0mm. Operating temperature ranges from -40�C to +85�C. The PWR Series switches are available in tape-and-reel or tube packaging. The SMD PWR Series switches are ideal for white good and appliance main power, particularly in dishwashers, eliminating the need for a separate panel-mount power switch and wire harness.
