C&K Expands Subminiature Snap-Acting Switch Line
C&K Components has expanded its ZMS Series subminiature snap-acting switch line to include right-angle mount configurations. The switches now feature a mounting hole with a locating stud, along with potted wire leads in straight and right angle configurations to meet IP67 sealing specifications.
The addition of the new mounting hole in the switch case gives design engineers the flexibility to mount a PC board via the switch to a panel or external plate, while the locating stud provides further right-angle PC board mounting support, said Vinny Acampora, product manager for C&K Components. Along with the increased mounting support, the switch is rated to 3A @125VAC in an extremely compact footprint, making it ideal for use in a variety of applications such as communication devices, testing equipment, consumer electronics, and security/alarm systems, as well as for PCB detection.

With a positive and reliable snap-acting mechanism, the ZMS Series switches feature a long mechanical life span of more than 100,000 cycles. Wire lead versions meet IP67 specifications, while PC board soldering terminations meet dust and splash-proof requirements. Contact rating is up to 3A at 125VAC. The RoHS-compliant switches feature an operating temperature range from -40°C to +85°C.
