Switches, Relays & Keypads


Epoxy-encapsulated

29 August 2001 Switches, Relays & Keypads

Clare's new family of epoxy-encapsulated DYAD switches are designed for physically demanding applications, and extends the reach of Clare's DYAD line into electronic applications once considered too demanding for reed switches - specifically, applications subject to rough handling, shock or vibration.

The CM15 Molded DYAD, the CM10 Molded Mini DYAD and the CM5 Molded Ultra Mini DYAD are all pick-and-place compatible, enhancing productivity efficiency. Additionally, the new epoxy encapsulation reduces or eliminates material-handling issues faced by OEMs attempting to include typical reed switches in their designs. Automated assembly systems can introduce stress when placing components on a board. These switches provide a robust solution to manufacturing concerns as well as a higher level of reliability in the field.

All of Clare's magnetically-actuated DYAD switches come in a variety of configurations, have Form A (normally open) contacts, and include a range of voltage, current and power handling capabilities. Each switch has sputtered ruthenium contacts that typically deliver an operating life of >1 billion cycles.
