Newton, Mass. — C&K Components has expanded its family of low-profile miniature slide switches with the introduction of the PCM Series. Targeting applications with board space and height restrictions, the ultra-miniature PCM Series is available in SPDT and SP3T models. Applications include computer & computer peripheral products, networking equipment, telecommunication products and test & measurement equipment.
The slide switches feature a contact rating of 0.3A @ 6 VDC, a contact resistance of 70-mohms maximum, an insulation resistance of 100 Mohms minimum @ 500V, and a dielectric strength of 500 VAC minimum. The operating temperature range is -20°C to 85°C.
"The PCM Series switch is a high-quality, ultra-miniature solution that helps engineers address a number of design concerns with its low-profile and space saving design," said Vinny Acampora, product manager at C&K Components, in a statement.
The PCM Series is RoHS-compliant, and offers a mechanical operating life of 10K cycles. It features a rugged stainless steel housing, copper alloy silver clad brush, and copper alloy, silver-plated terminals.
