Board-mounted switches for industrial or automotive applications introduced by C&K
NEWTON, Mass., 13 May 2014. C&K Components in Newton, Mass., is introducing two medium-power compact printed circuit board-mounted switches as part of the company's PVA series short-stroke key switches for through-hole printed circuit board soldering in industrial or automotive applications.
The switches have either momentary or locking actuation configurations, and are available in either double pole, single throw double pole or double throw or DPDT configurations.
With five different actuator height options from 13 to 23 millimeters and actuation force of 1.2N, 1.7N or 3.5N, the PVA series switches can be used in a wide variety of applications where there is a restricted footprint available on the PC board and a limited throw distance.
The PVB series low-profile push switches are for surface mount or through-hole soldering. The PVA and PVB series switches have silent and smooth actuation, with the option for either momentary or locking (push-push) functionality.
The PVA series switches are rated for 32-volt DC, 3-Watt, with an operational life of more than 100,000 cycles. The PVB series switches carry ratings of 14 volts DC at 1.4 Watts and 2.8 Watts, with an operational life of 100,000 cycles.
The PVA series switches are available with several colors and styles of buttons. The surface-mount PVB series switches are sold in tape-and-reel packaging and are compatible with automated pick-and-place equipment.
