Sealed SPDT Switch Fits In Standard Trimmer Footprint

A family of environmentally sealed switches, the 82 SW series, incorporates a single-pole, double-throw (SPDT) switch into a 0.25-in. diameter trimmer package with a 0.140-in. profile. The parts give board designers a rugged switch with an industry-standard trimmer footprint. The versatile switches are compatible with board-wash and wave-soldering processes. The SPDT switch has a 200-cycle rotational life. The package's three-pin design enables designers to control one or two circuits by using the switch as an on-off or on-on device. The 82 SW switches are available in both top- and side-adjustment styles with a variety of pin-out configurations. They suit a range of applications, including medical equipment, photoelectric controls, remote controls, test equipment, and security systems. Packaging options include boxes, tubes, and tape-and-reel. In 1000-unit quantities, the 82 SW series switches cost $0.69 each with lead times from three weeks or less.
