C&K's New Compact Reset Switches Target Pumps and Furnace Control Applications
C&K Components, a leading international supplier of tact switches, toggle, rocker and pushbutton switches, and smart card interconnect devices, has developed a compact reset switch with low operating force to ensure ease-of-use and precision in activation. Designated the LF series, the switches are ideal for use in pump and furnace controls.
The low operating force, as well as the stainless steel or plastic lever options, make these reset switches a reliable solution for applications that require durability and ruggedness due to challenging environments, said Vinny Acampora, product manager for C&K Components.
The LF Series has a quick make/quick break design mechanism which assures a reliable operating position. The RoHS-compliant switches feature an operating force of 0.53oz/15g and 0.35oz/10g. The electrical life is 100,000 cycles at 5 Amps @ 250 VAC, and the switch offers a moveable contact of fine silver with a stationary contact of fine silver on copper alloy. Operating temperature ranges from -40°C to +95°C.
