Switch for reliability

Omron Electronic Components has introduced a new micro-switch measuring 6.5 by 12.8 by 5.8mm, said to offer enhanced switching reliability.

Features include a two-stage bottom housing with different levels designed to prevent flux penetration during manufacturing. The Omron D2F micro-switch also incorporates insertion moulded terminals and a unique snapping mechanism constructed with two split springs to ensure a long and reliable service life.

Omron European product marketing manager, switches, Andries de Bruin, said: “The D2F micro-switch range is suitable for various sectors including security, vending, industrial, process control and embedded applications. The line-up includes industry standard types, low torque sealed switches and a number of industry specific models.”

Operating voltage is 125V AC at 3A and 30V DC at 2A, with an insulation resistance of 100MOhm and an operating temperature range of -25 to 85°C.
