C&K Components has developed a surface mount micro miniature pendulum detect switch for consumer electronic and harsh environment industrial applications.
A rugged combination of stainless steel base metal with silver-over-nickel plating and phosphor bronze-based contacts/terminals contributes to the robust SDP002 detect switch’s long lifespan and RoHS compliance. The low profile SDP002 switch is either right or left side actuated with low force, allowing for a wide expanse of viable integration options in industrial controls, advanced telecommunications computing architecture, or in compact consumer devices.
The micro miniature pendulum switch can withstand a voltage of 100VAC for one minute, and its contacts are rated at 5VDC 1mA. The SDP002 switch maintains a 50,000 cycle electrical life and an operating temperature range of -20ºC to +70ºC. Maximum operating force for the SDP002 switch is 12.2 gf. Manual soldering temperature may reach up to 355ºC for a period of 3.5 seconds without damaging the integrity of construction. The SDP002 switches are available in tape-and-reel packaging with 4,550 switches per reel.
The SDP002 switches are well-suited for industrial control boards, including hot-swappable ATCA boards or remote devices found in consumer electronics.
