February 8, 2024 – We are excited to announce the launch of the Series FD01 and FD02 Ultra-Thin DIP Rotary Switches. The Series FD01 and FD02 stand out with their compact dimensions of 7.2mm and 7.7mm square, respectively, combined with a low-profile height of just 3.1 to 3.3mm. These ultra-thin dimensions make them perfectly suited for high-density mounting, addressing the growing need for space-saving yet efficient components in electronics design.
Technical Excellence and Durability:
- Electrical Capacity: With a rating of 0.4VA maximum at 20V maximum, AC/DC, these switches are designed for optimal electrical performance.
- Mechanical and Electrical Life: Guaranteed for a minimum of 10,000 operations, these rotaries promise durability and long-lasting reliability.
- Contact Resistance: Offering a maximum of 100 milliohms at 20mV, 10mA, they ensure efficient performance.
- Environmental Resilience: Operating effectively within a temperature range of –25°C through +85°C, these switches are built to withstand challenging conditions.
Innovative Features for Enhanced Performance:
- Rotor and Case Composition: Utilizing LCP resin for the rotor and PPS resin for the case cover and base, the switches are robust against environmental factors.
- Gold-Plated Contacts: The movable contacts are made of Corson alloy with gold plating, providing superior contact reliability.
- Terminal Options: Series FD01 offers through hole terminals, while the FD02 features surface mount terminals, providing stability during soldering and ease of inspection.
NKK Switches continues to pioneer in the switch technology space, and the Series FD01 and FD02 are good examples of our commitment to providing both innovative and high-quality solutions.
