Able to be mounted directly on flex circuits is an addition to the Duraswitch line of switches. The slide switch is available as a stand-alone discrete switch or can be integrated into control panels. The device is based on the company’s magnetic-based design that results in a robust, highly customizable user interface. When the slide is moved, gold balls underneath follow magnets housed within the top lever. As the gold balls pass over the contacts on a flexible circuit, the switch signal is sent to the microprocessor. The design enables seamless integration in keypads and control boards. Mounted on flex circuit, the Duraswitch slide switch can be sealed against contaminants eliminating a common cause of switch failure. The Duraswitch slide switch has a total package depth of 0.125 in. or 3.175 mm below the overlay, making it a perfect solution for space-constrained applications. The thin profile can even accommodate curved surfaces. The slide switch is fully customizable for detents and electronic output. DURASWITCH, Scottsdale, AZ. (480) 659-0495.
