C&K Components Develops Microminiature SMT Detect Switches with Ultra Low Profile, Low Actuation Force
By News Author | October 14, 2014
HDP Series surface mount side-actuated detect switches available in right or left position
C&K Components has developed a new series of microminiature, side-actuated detect switches with an ultra low board-mounted profile. The HDP Series switches measure just 5.7mm x 8.35mm in the "free" position and feature a very low profile height of 1.9mm off the board. With an operating life of 100,000 cycles, these robust switches are ideal for consumer electronics, computers, medical devices, mobile communications, and ATCA/MicroTCA applications.
The HDP Series devices are halogen-free, side-actuated, surface mount detect switches with two color-coded options to distinguish between the right- and left-hand actuation styles. The right-hand version features a black actuator body, and the left-hand version is gray. Contacts are rated for 1mA / 5VDC with a contact resistance of less than 500mOhms. The switch’s total travel distance is 1.3mm, and the operating temperature range is -20°C to 70°C.
"The HDP Series switches provide design engineers with a flexible, rugged side-actuation device with an extremely low profile that can be used in either left- or right-hand configurations for applications in consumer electronics, mobile communications, medical equipment, and ACTA/MicroTCA devices," said Kyle Peterson, product manager at C&K Components.
HDP Series switches are supplied in 2,500-piece tape-and-reel packaging. Samples are currently available.
