Miniature switches are rated for 5m operations

Rated for at least 5 million operations and switching at 300 operations per minute, two durable compact surface mount switches have been introduced by Omron Electronic Components Europe. The D2LS switches are aimed specifically at high use switching applications such as elevator switches, circuit breakers, digital pens and laser pointers.

Omron has released the switch in a standard version, with an operating force of 0.6N and a high force type with an operating force of 1.2N. Both feature the same long life and fast switching with an audible click.

The D2LS is exceptionally compact, with overall dimensions of just 8.6x4.8x3.0mm, supporting the down-sizing of module designs. They are sealed to IP40 and can switch loads of 1mA at 6VDC. The contacts are silver and the switch is supplied in normally open configuration. Contact resistance is 100mΩ.

Omron supplies the D2LS in embossed tape packaging for automatic mounting, in reels of 2,000 units.
