Knitter-switch has announced a new series of rotary coding switches that will interest manufacturers of industrial and building automation systems and measuring instruments. They are washable, rated to IP67 and provide a contact breaking capacity of 100mA @ 42V. The new DRS/SMR 15000/16000 series of rotary coding switches are available with a PCB space saving body of just 7 x 7mm and offer surface mount and through-hole mounting versions. Both designs can be reflow soldered. A surface mount version is supplied in T/R packing for pick and place assembly systems and also available with a shaft. Operating temperature range is – 50C to +125C. Coding options include BCD 10 position and hexadecimal 16 positions, each available with both real and inverse (complement) coding.
Samples are usually available on next day delivery.
