NKK Switches Announces Affordable Dip Rotary Switches
FR series offers quality, cost-effective alternative to traditional DIP rotary switches
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (September 15, 2004) - NKK Switches announces the release of its FR series of 10 mm, ultra-thin DIP rotary switches, a cost-effective alternative to the more expensive DIP rotaries currently available in the market.
With this series of switches, NKK Switches continues to lead the industry in the design and manufacture of cutting-edge technology products, enabling engineers to incorporate the best characteristics of this type of device, while delivering it at a price unmatched by their competitors.
The FR series of binary coded DIP rotaries are environmentally friendly devices, meeting the RoHS directive restricting the use of hazardous substances. The heat-resistant resin materials are UL94V-0 and suited to lead-free solder processing applications including vapor phase and infrared convection reflow soldering.
These 10mm DIP rotaries feature a body dimension of 3.8mm in height, delivering the lowest profile in the industry and allowing close stacking of PC boards. Available in real or complement codes and decimal or hexadecimal configurations, the FR series can be specified in through hole or SMD models. Highly visible legends with an arrow to indicate position provide trouble-free code setting, and color-keyed actuators identify codes.
Electrical capacity switching rating is 100mA @ 5V DC, while the non-switching rating is 100mA @ 50V DC. The cam-activated movable contact and gold contacts ensure contact reliability and continuity. The detent mechanism gives crisp, positive action providing accurate switch setting. Actuators are fully rotational and can be operated either clockwise or counterclockwise.
A leading designer and producer of electromechanical switches, NKK Switches offers one of the industry's most extensive selections of illuminated, process sealed, miniature, specialty and surface mount switches. The company manufactures more than three million toggle, rocker, pushbutton, slide, rotary, DIP rotary, keypad and keylock switches. NKK Switches maintains a complete network of qualified representatives and distributors through the United States, Canada, Central and South America, Europe and Asia.
NKK Switches is keenly aware of the myriad of issues that are covered under the RoHS directive. With more than 50 years experience in the switch industry and as an environmentally-conscious company, NKK is committed to not only providing high quality products and services, but also providing environmentally safe products for our valued customers.
