GP01 Series Pushbutton

NKK Switches introduces the GP01 Series Ultra-Miniature Right Angle SMT Pushbuttons. Throughout this module, you will learn the specifics of this series and the benefits it can bring to your application.

Features and Benefits

The GP01 Series Pushbutton is designed for high-density mounting. The J bend terminals lend to easy surface mounting in a reduced space, mechanical stability during soldering, and simplified solder joint inspection.

To reduce installation complexity, the cap (red, white, or black) and plunger are one unit– this simplifies the soldering and cleaning process. Or, the series is available with just the plunger. The greaseless condition contributes to resistance of harsh conditions, including wider operating temperatures.

Furthermore, the GP01 Series works to solve a wide variety of problems including:

General Specifications

  • Dielectric Strength: 500V AC minimum for 1 minute
  • Operating Temperature: -40°C ~ +85°C (+40°F ~ +185°F)
  • Mechanical and Electric Life: 40,000 operations minimum
