Scottsdale, Ariz. NKK Switches has reduced the cost of its MB2000 and MB2400 series miniature pushbuttons, making them suitable for low-cost designs.
The MB2000 series of miniature pushbuttons is available in single-pole, double-pole, and four-pole/double-throw configurations, with momentary or alternate action circuits. The MB2000 series is designed with an over center actuator mechanism that diminishes sparking and increases operating life in AC circuits. Guide interlocked actuator blocks are precision manufactured and prevent window locking while maintaining correct plunger alignment to ensure contact reliability. Power rated models are 6 A at 125 Vac and 3 A at 250 Vac or 3 A at 30 Vdc. Logic level devices are rated for 0.4 VA maximum at 28 Vac/dc maximum.
The MB2400 series of momentary action pushbuttons feature a snap-acting mechanism that provides a smooth actuation, a short stroke, light touch and audible feedback. Available in single-pole or double-pole models with gold, silver, or gold over silver contacts, these devices are rated at either 3 A at 125 Vac for silver, 0.4 VA maximum at 28 Vac/dc for gold, or dual-rating when gold over silver is specified.
The MB2000 and MB2400 series are both UL recognized and CSA certified. All models feature high insulating barriers, increasing the isolation of circuits in multi-pole devices. Frames are clinched well above the case and terminals, providing 1,500-V dielectric strength. Terminals are epoxy sealed to prevent entry of flux and other contaminants.
Pricing: Starts as low as $1.81 in quantities over 10,000.
