ELKHART, IND. CTS Corp. has developed a J-lead terminal configuration for its Series 219 surface-mount single-pole, single-throw DIP switch line. The J-lead construction forms the terminal alongside and under the product, reducing the placement width some 2.54 mm, or 0.1 inch. All Series 219 auto-placeable DIP switches feature standard gold-plated contacts, as well as medium- or low-profile actuators.
The J-lead terminal construction is compatible with most surface-mount assembly placement equipment and meets or exceeds IR and vapor-phase soldering specifications up to 260 degrees C for 60 seconds and wave solder specifications up to 260 degrees C for 6 seconds. Pricing for a standard 12-section switch is less than 75 cents each in production quantities.
