ILLUMINATED PUSHBUTTON SWITCHES
NKK Switches has announced the GB Series of ultra-subminiature pushbutton switches with illuminated plungers. The series’ clear polyamide plunger is designed to produce a high visibility of status indication and is available with red, green or amber LED illumination. Featuring a sealed body construction to prevent contact contamination, the switches also allow for time- and money-saving automated soldering and cleaning. The insert-molded terminals lock out flux, solvents and other contaminants, guaranteeing a mechanical and electrical life of 50,000 operations minimum.
Terminal spacing on the series is 2.54 x 2.54 mm – conforming to standard PC board grid spacing, and round terminals facilitate through-hole mounting. The series is available in an SPDT momentary circuit configuration with straight, right angle or vertical PC mounting terminals. The current rating is 0.4 VA maximum at 28 Vac/dc maximum.
