NEW Series! Ultra-Thin DIP Rotary Switches – Series FD01 & FD02

NEW Series! Ultra-Thin DIP Rotary Switches - Series FD01 & FD02

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.
