C&K Components has today announced the expansion of its family of low-profile, cost-effective miniature slide switches. Now available in both SPDT and SP3T models, the PCM series slide switches are specifically designed for applications with significant board space and height restrictions.
Extensively designed into computer & computer peripheral products, networking equipment, telecommunication products and test & measurement equipment, the PCM series switches have a mechanical operating life of 10K cycles. RoHS-compliant, the PCM Series feature rugged stainless steel housing, copper alloy silver clad brush, and copper alloy, silver-plated terminals.
Vinny Acampora, Product Manager at C&K Components, commented: "The PCM Series switch is a high-quality, ultra-miniature solution that helps engineers address a number of design concerns with its low-profile and space saving design."
Featuring an operating temperature range of -20°C to 85°C, the PCM series miniature slide switches provide a contact rating of 0.3A @ 6 VDC, a contact resistance of 70 mOhm (maximum), an insulation resistance of 100MO (minimum) @ 500V, and a dielectric strength of 500 VAC (minimum).
Both the PCM12 and PCM13 are packaged in tape and reel, which is ideal for pick and place assembly.
