Switches offer ultra low profile and side-actuated detection


General DPN

C&K Components has developed a new series of micro-miniature, side-actuated detect switches. Designated the GDS Series, the ultra low profile detect switches can be actuated from either the X or Y axes, providing maximum versatility in a variety of applications.

The GDS Series detect switches feature a low maximum actuation force of only 30 grams. Contact rating is 1mA @ 5VDC, with a maximum initial contact resistance of 1Ω and a minimum insulation resistance of 100MΩ between adjacent contacts. Minimum mechanical and electrical life is to 100,000 cycles and operating temperature ranges from -20¬∞C to +70¬∞C. The GDS Series switches are pick and place compatible and available in tape and reel packaging (5,000 pieces per reel). The switches are RoHS compliant and compatible.
