Sealed tact switches for industrial and medical systems
02 May 2008
knitter-switch has made available a new series of sealed tact switches that are ideal for a variety of industrial and medical systems applications where protection to IP67 is required.
According to knitter-switch, the new TS 12 and TSS 12 series are direct equivalents to Rafi’s RACON 12 switches. They provide the user with an excellent tactile feedback and offer a long operational life of at least one million cycles as well as being sealed with silicone rubber to IP67.
The TS 12/TSS 12 switches measure just 12 x 12mm and are available in surface mount as well as two through hole versions - 10 or 12.5mm pitch. The switches feature a long travel of 0.8mm and the force required for operation is 3.5N.
These RoHS compliant switches are lead-free solderable to 260ºC. Contact ratings are high at 42VDC or AC,100mA and the operating temperature range is -40ºC to +80ºC.
The new tact switches are designed to be used in industrial keyboards, industrial control units and medical systems.
Knitter-switch TS 12/TSS 12 series switches are available from stock and from a number of distributors throughout Europe. Samples are usually available on next day delivery.
