Maple Grove, Minn. CIT Relay & Switch has introduced a RoHS-compliant RPH series of pushbutton switches in DPDT, 4PDT and 6PDT configurations. These switches are designed for computers and peripherals, instrumentation and measurement equipment, and non-power on/off applications.
The RPH series provides an electrical rating of 100 mA at 30 Vdc with an electrical life of 30,000 cycles typical. Contact resistance is less than 50 mΩ max initially at 2-4 Vdc, 100 mA. Dielectric strength is 1250 Vrms minimum and insulation resistance is greater than 100 MΩ minimum. The operating temperature range is -20°C to 70°C with a storage temperature of -40°C to 85°C.
These subminiature switches are available in both latching and non-latching versions. They are also offered in several termination options (PC terminals, snap-in PC terminals), and mounting choices (single-stage mounting chassis, PC mounting bracket, or the standard no chassis). A variety of cap options are also available.
