C&K Components has developed a rolling ball tilt switch series that features a funnel-shape design for high accuracy and 360 degree detection.
Designated the RB-4G0124 and RB-231 respectively, the rolling ball tilt switches are specially designed for safety control. The RB-4G0124 rolling ball tilt switch is equipped with infrared LED and phototransistor to precisely detect the control signal. The tilt switch provides an electrical life of 1,000,000 cycles and a mechanical life of 20,000,000 cycles.
The RB-231 Rolling Ball Tilt Switch features a compact, shielded design that provides an angle of detection at 10 degrees. The conductive ball is movable inside the tube to generate the signal and contact. The RB-231 Rolling Ball Tilt Switch provides an operating life of 100,000 cycles.
C&K's Rolling Ball Tilt Switch Series is intended for movement detection, safety device, white good and consumer electronic applications, including irons, portable heaters, games, toys and handheld devices.
