New from knitter-switch, the TSSL 3W illuminated tact switch is ideal for use in a wide range of applications where tactile response, small size and LED illumination is required.
With a height of just 2.5mm and a body size of 4.1 x 6.8mm, the switch is illuminated using two LEDs which may be user selected to be in any colour combination. The TSSL 3W is ideal for use in illuminated keys in consumer, telecomms and many other human interface applications.

The switch is RoHS compliant and features a contact rating of 12VDC @ 50mA, a maximum contact resistance of 100mO and an operating temperature range of -20 to +70ºC. This new switch features an operating force of 1.6N and gives the user a sharp “click” feeling when pushed.

Terry Moss, General Sales manager of knitter-switch UK comments, “this is a significant new product for knitter-switch as there are very few surface mount illuminated TACT switches on the market. Having two LED’s allows users to indicate the status of their end system, which is often required where a standby or sleep-mode is available. The TSSL 3W has a very low profile and we can also offer blue LED’s for additional flexibility.”

knitter-switch TSSL 3W switches are available from stock in tape and reel packaging direct from knitter-switch or a number of distributors throughout Europe. Samples are usually available on next day delivery. Typical applications include, remote controls, hand held devices, audio and broadcast systems.
