Rugged magnetic detect switches

9 June 2010 Switches, Relays & Keypads

C&K Components now offers a magnetic detect switch designed specifically for use in telecom and enclosure applications. The miniature, surface mount RS series switches feature a magnetic reed sensor with an omnipolar orientation, allowing it to be operated with either pole of the magnet. The switches are particularly suitable for telecom and enclosure applications because of their miniature size, lifespan to 1 million cycles and rugged design, which allows them to withstand cabinet door slams and misalignment.

Along with telecom and enclosure applications, the RS series is also suitable for consumer electronics, computers, medical devices, factory automation and security equipment. Available with top or side actuation, the normally-open switches feature a contact rating of 5,0 VA, with a maximum switching current of 0,35 A and a maximum carrying current of 0,5 A. Maximum contact resistance is 200 m initial, and operating temperature ranges from -40°C and +140°C. The RoHS compliant and compatible detect switches are available with either gullwing or J-lead terminations, are pick-and-place compatible and available in tape and reel packaging.
