New Product: Sealed, Snap-Action Switch

April 24, 2008
The V5 sealed (V5S) snap-action switch offers 2 mm of plunger over-travel compared to the conventional 1.2 mm.

The single-break, changeover switch actuates in multidirectional angles up to 45°, eliminating the need for extra levers or arms and reducing costs and overall footprint. The V5S’s SMT components are inside the switch housing, which is completely sealed. Additional features include 1-mA to 2-A (5 to 14- V) current rating, operation at –40 to 90°C (–40 to 194°F), and a 1 million cycle mechanical rating.
