C&K Components has released a new series of microminiature, SMT top-actuated switches that provide low profile, high actuation force (450gf), and high life cycle (500,000) solutions especially designed to meet the demanding size and performance specifications required of portable electronic devices. With a footprint of just 3.5mm x 2.6mm and an ultra-low profile of 1.4mm, C&K’s new PTS830 Series SMT switches deliver reliable switching performance within the space constraints imposed by the miniaturization of next-generation wearable electronic devices, portable wireless devices, remote controls, and keyless entry systems.
PTS830 Series SMT switches are top-actuated, momentary action devices, with a single pull single throw (SPST), normally open configuration. Rated for 12VDC and 50mA, the switches are available with actuation force options of 160gf and 450gf, and with operating life cycles of 500,000 and 200,000. Travel distance is 0.15mm ±0.1mm, with a typical bounce time of ≤10ms, and rated operating temperatures for the series span -40°C to +85°C.
