C&K Components, a leading international supplier of tact switches, toggle, rocker and pushbutton switches, and smart card interconnect devices, offers a series of low-cost, miniature slide switches. Designated the OS Series, the RoHS-compliant miniature slide switches feature a new high-temperature option for lead-free soldering. Designed with a variety of actuators and terminations, the OS Series miniature slide switches are ideal for thermostat applications, as well as test and measurement equipment, computer peripherals and consumer products.
The OS Series was designed for easy integration into a variety of applications, and this new lead-free soldering option ensures that the slide switch can withstand a high temperature integration, said Vinny Acampora, product manager for C&K Components. The miniature slide switch provides an extremely cost-effective alternative to other switches that are currently on the market today.
The OS Series slide switches feature PC- and panel-mounting and are able to withstand a high-temperature mounting with the new lead-free soldering option. Mechanical and electrical life for the OS Series is to 10,000 cycles. It also features shorting or non-shorting contacts with gold or silver contact plating. Maximum contact resistance is 20m?, with a minimum insulation resistance of 100m? at 500VDC. Dielectric strength is 500VAC for 1 minute, and operating temperature ranges from -10ºC to +70ºC
