Ultra-Miniature Switches Ensure Crisp Actuation

Designed for use in low-voltage, low-current logic-level circuits, the G series washable toggle and rocker switches measure only 7 by 7 by 4.5 mm and weigh 0.25 g. The company's patented Sliding Twin Crossbar (STC) contact mechanism ensures high contact reliability and crisp actuation. The parts are rated at 0.4 V A maximum at 28 V ac/dc maximum. Both the mechanical and electrical life are rated for a minimum of 100,000 operations for maintained circuits and 50,000 operations minimum for momentary circuits. The STC mechanism also guarantees that the gold-plated contacts are wiped clean with every actuation. The G series switches are available in single- or double-pole variations and with five circuit combinations. Straight, right-angle, and vertical-mount versions are available for the toggle actuators, and rocker switches come in straight PC or right-angle PC-mount configurations. The G series' molded-in, epoxy-sealed terminals lock out flux, solvents, and other contaminants. The G series washable toggle and rocker switches cost about $2.05 each in 1000-piece quantities.
