C&K Develops Sealed Ultra Miniature Pushbutton Switches in Vertical and Right Angle Configurations

NEWTON, MA - C&K Components, a leading international supplier of tact switches, toggle, rocker and pushbutton switches, and smart card interconnect devices, has developed an ultra miniature pushbutton switch. Designated the FP Series, the RoHS compliant and compatible sealed switches are available in both vertical and right angle mount configurations, and feature an extended operating life to 50,000 cycles.

"The FP Series switches measure just 5.6mm x 7mm, with a board height of only 5mm for the right angle version and 4.5mm x 7mm, with a board height of only 5.6mm for the vertical version," said David Webber, director of product management for C&K Components. "With its ultra miniature size and versatility via the vertical and right angle mount configurations, these pushbutton switches are ideal for use in telecom and datacom applications."

The FP Series switches feature gold over nickel-plated contacts and are available with or without a white, black or red cap.

The FP Series switches feature a contact resistance of 10mA @ 2VDC, with an initial contact resistance of 80mΩ maximum. Dielectric withstanding voltage is 500VDC between terminals/1 minute, while insulation resistance is 500MΩ minimum @ 500VDC. Typical bounce time is ≤10ms. Maximum operating force is 6.9N and mechanical travel is 1.0mm. Operating temperature ranges from -20ºC to +80ºC. The FP Series switches are available in tray and bulk bag packaging.
