Scottsdale, Ariz. NKK Switches completes its offering of illuminated toggle switches with the introduction of its lightweight ultra-miniature B series and subminiature G series for front panel interfaces and handheld devices.
The toggle actuators of both the B series and G series are manufactured of a clear polyamide, allowing the LED color to fully illuminate through the entire actuator. LED choices include red, green, amber and bi-color red/green illumination. The B series also features a patent-pending bushing that is fully illuminated as well.
Rated for 0.4 VA at 28 Vac/dc maximum, both the B series and G series are available in single pole maintained circuit options of ON-ON and ON-OFF-ON. These devices can be specified in straight PC, right angle or vertical mount terminations. Both devices feature NKK's sliding twin crossbar (STC) contact mechanism, which is said to ensure a positive and smooth detent, as well as increased contact and logic-level reliability. These switches are process compatible.
Both series offer a mechanical life rating of 100,000 operations minimum. The B series provides an electrical life rating of 50,000 operations minimum and the G series provides an electrical life rating of 100,000 operations minimum.
The G series measures .276 in. (height) x .177 in. (depth) with a toggle actuator length of .150 inches. The B series offers dimensions of .516 in. (height) x .346 in. (depth). The illuminated toggle measures .248 in. in length with the illuminated bushing measuring .106 in. high. Click the link for more information about the illuminated toggle switches.
