ITT Expands Subminiature Switch Lines With Space-Saving SA1 Termination Style

NEWTON, Mass. - July 27, 2006 - Providing circuit designers with a space-saving right-angle board-mount configuration for its popular line of subminiature switches, the C&K EP pushbutton and ET rocker and toggle switches from ITT, Electronic Components are now available in SA1 termination. All switch versions are sealed against contaminants and are available in SMT right-angle mount options.

"Compared to the SA termination style, the SA1 termination saves 3.0mm of solder pad space, allowing for denser switch populations on a printed circuit board," says David Webber, worldwide product line manager for ITT, Electronic Components. "Adding the SA1 termination style completes the full family of terminations for our EP and ET switch lines."

The EP and ET switch series are RoHS-compliant and carry a UL 94V-0 rating. Operating temperature range for the switches is -30°C to +85°C, with dielectric strength of 1000 Vrms minimum at sea level. The 30,000-cycle life expectancy makes the EP and ET lines ideal for applications in telecom, instrumentation and computers and peripherals. For more information, visit
