Rockers And Pushbuttons Ride In Off-Road Vehicles

For off-road vehicle designs, the AR3 and AR5 Hall-effect, contactless sensing analog rocker switches feature a rocker life of more than two million actuations, short circuit protection, and integrated temperature compensation. The AR5 rockers allow for customized fingertip style actuators that are common in off-road applications, as well as different lengths and color combinations. They feature an optional detent/over travel life of more than 200K cycles, and an optional latching life of more than 100K cycles. Operating force ranges from 4N to 6N with a maximum vertical load of 30N. Maximum output current is 1 mA, maximum rocker deflection angle is ±40°, and the switch is sealed to IP65 specs. Operating temperature ranges from -40°C to +85°C. The AR3 rocker switches feature an operating force from 4N to 6N with a maximum vertical load of 30N. Maximum output current is 1 mA, maximum rocker deflection angle is ±30°, and the switch is sealed to IP65 specifications from above when mounted. Operating temperature ranges from -35°C to +70°C. The HP Series Hall-effect pushbutton switch specifies a lifespan to 10 million actuations. The sealed switches feature a non-contact Hall-effect contact system and a high-energy magnet provides a linear magnetic field for the Hall device. Practically immune to environmental contaminants, it can be sealed to meet IP67 specs. The HP Series also supports redundant, linear Hall devices. Input voltage is 5 Vdc with a programmable output voltage range from 0.5V to 4.5V and one or two available outputs. Actuator travel is 0.15" and operating temperature ranges from -40ºC to +85ºC.
