Scottsdale, Ariz. Positioned as a lower cost alternative to other miniature switches, NKK Switches has introduced a new E-Series of light duty miniature toggle switches that tout several protective features.
NKK said the new series features several distinctive characteristics that set these devices apart from their competitors. These include a high torque bushing that prevents rotation and separation from the metal frame during installation, and a stainless steel frame to resist corrosion. In addition, an anti-jamming design protects the contact mechanism from damage if the lever is subjected to a sharp downward force or other harsh treatment. In double-pole models, higher insulating barriers protect these toggles against crossover.
These light duty toggles are available in single-pole or double-pole, and in multiple circuit configurations including momentary and maintained circuits. Offered with power or logic level capabilities, power models are rated for 3 A at 125 Vac and logic level devices are rated for 0.4 VA maximum at 28 Vac/dc maximum. They provide a 1,500 V dielectric strength between the contacts and the case. Solder lug or straight PC terminals are standard and are epoxy sealed to lock out solder flux and other contaminants.
The E-Series is UL Recognized and CSA Certified. In addition, the case, constructed of a heat resistant resin, has an UL94V-0 flammability rating. Optional splash proof boots are available.
The E-Series switches are priced at $1.65 each in quantities of 1,000. Delivery is from stock to four weeks.
