OTTO Presents B2D Basic Switches in Single Break and Snap Action Design

Press Release Summary:

The B2D Basic Switches with reduced dead break are available in single turret solder style, double turret solder style, Quick Connect, PC pins and wires styles. The units reduce the time or distance of actuator travel to cause switch to transfer from one circuit to the other. It is suitable for pressure transducers and level sensor applications where the difference between breaking and making of the circuit needs to be as close to zero (minimum).

OTTO Releases the New B2D Basic Switch with Reduced Dead Break

CARPENTERSVILLE, Ill., Sept. 7, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- OTTO, an industry leader in the design and manufacturing of control switches, joysticks and grips, announces the new B2D basic switch with reduced dead break.

The B2D is a single break, snap action, subminiature basic switch with reduced dead break designed for pressure transducers, level sensors and other applications where the difference between the breaking of the first circuit and the making of the second circuit needs to be as close as possible to zero.

As multi-circuit switches change from one circuit to another, there is always a small amount of time or distance where the actuator is depressed and the switch is not connected to either circuit. Dead break is the distance of actuator travel to cause the switch to transfer from one circuit to the other. OTTO's B2D closes that gap more quickly than a traditional basic switch. It will outperform most switches when the actuator is being depressed very slowly, or when it is important for the application to minimize the time the switch is not connected to either circuit.

There are 13 terminal styles which include single turret solder style, double turret solder style, Quick Connect, PC pins and wires.

The B2D shares the same dimensions as OTTO's B2 basic switch, is a drop-in replacement and is available with or without lever actuators.
