Door interlock switches

18 March 2015 Switches, Relays & Keypads

The C&K DS series door interlock switch offers flexibility as it has latching or momentary actions and can be used as an interlock switch, detection switch or circuit interrupt switch. Applications include gaming and vending machines; the switches have a push/pull feature to break power when the machine door is opened for troubleshooting, maintenance and repair.

The DS series is flexible, enabling many design options thanks to their construction, which combines quick assembly with a long operating life of 50 000 cycles at 10 A. They are available as single-pole, double-throw or double-pole, double-throw models with snap-in style mounting. The reliable snap action actuator is available in three actuator styles: momentary, short button, momentary, long button and momentary/pulled out button.

There is a choice of three different terminals which can be specified on ordering and three electrical ratings: D6, D7 and F5. The F5 rated switches can also be specified for extended electrical life of 100 000 cycles on request. Further electrical specifications include dielectric strength of 1500 V (50 – 60 Hz at sea level), and insulation resistance of 100 M minimum and initial contact resistance of 30 m.

Suitable for operating environments between -40°C to +85°C, the DS series features rugged copper alloy, silver-plated common terminals and F5-rated, gold-plated over silver alloy contacts for robust performance. They are RoHS compliant and halogen free.
