Ultra-compact lever switch is near silent

Omron Electronic Components Europe has launched a sealed ultra subminiature lever switch featuring a long stroke, a unique highly reliable contact mechanism and near silent operation. The Omron D2AW long stroke sealed switches feature a unique twin contact design, giving higher reliability. The contacts have a sliding action, which not only helps remove dust and other contamination, but is also exceptionally quiet.

This makes the D2AW highly suitable for consumer electronics and high grade automotive applications. Other applications include white goods, HVAC systems, security systems and smart meters. Sized just 13.3x7.0x5.3mm, the D2AW has a long stroke with 1.4mm of over travel.

The D2AW is very robust, and is able to support up to 20 operations per minute and has an insulation resistance of 100MΩ. It has a rated life of 200,000 operations. It is sealed to IEC IP67. It can switch currents of up to 100mA.

In common with other Omron switches, the D2AW is offered in a wide range of options and configurations. The switch is available as Normally Open or Normally Closed, with pin plunger, leaf lever, long lever, roller lever or long roller lever actuators.

The D2AW joins an extensive range of Omron lever switches including the snap-action D2HW which features the same compact dimensions but can handle up to 2A. For applications requiring a super-long stroke of 2.7mm over travel the D2QW is available. All Omron lever switches can be customised in terms of lever, terminal and cover according to the customer’s specific application and requirements.
