Mini coded switch offers high torque and long life

Mini coded switch offers high torque and long life Now available from Foremost Electronics is the C08 miniature coded panel switch, believed to be the world's smallest coded panel switch to combine high torque tactile feedback (3Ncm), long life (10,000 cycles) and compatibility with lead-free reflow soldering. Designed to offer a space-saving user control for price-sensitive mobile or handheld applications such as two-way radios, instrumentation and medical equipment, the 9x9x10mm C08 coded panel switch offers SMD mounting as standard, with Gray, Hex or Hex complement codes. The C08 maintains its high torque consistently over the rated life of 10k cycles, and suits low profile equipment, with the operating shaft centreline only 4.65mm from the PCB. Manufactured by Elma, the C08 is offered in threaded and plain bush variants, with end-stop options, and a customisation service for medium and high volume users. The 10,000 cycle life and the tactile feel of the C08 provide reliable and positive operation even in difficult environments, especially since the C08 has an operating range of -40 to +85degC, and features a tin-plated die-cast housing. Switch ratings are 42V and 10mA at 0.12W.
