NKK Intros Illuminated Toggle Switches
Illuminated toggle switches.
Scottsdale, AZ — NKK Switches is introducing the M2100 series of LED-tipped miniature toggle switches, and the TL series of illuminated standard-size toggle switches. The two series offer engineers an array of highly visible lighted electromechanical toggle switches that display circuit status for multiple applications ranging from handheld devices to front panel interfaces.

The M2100 miniature LED-tipped toggles are available in power or logic level rated options. Design engineers can specify SPDT or DPDT maintained circuits with either synchronous or isolated LED circuits. The M2100 includes a high-torque bushing that prevents the actuator from rotating, and an anti-jamming feature to protect contacts from any excessive downward force.

Single pole, power-rated models, with synchronous circuits, are UL Recognized and CSA Certified, and all models have UL94V-0 rated bases. Power models are rated 6A at 125VAC or 3A at 250VAC or 3A at 30VDC. Terminations available include solder lug, QC, straight PC and right angle PC.

The switches are available in red, green, yellow or bicolor red/green LEDs, and are constructed using stainless steel frames to provide protection against corrosion.

The TL series of standard-size, fully-illuminated, translucent colored toggle switches have brilliant LEDs which are enhanced by polycarbonate translucent toggles that evenly distribute light. Color options include red, green and amber for bright LED configurations, while Super Bright LED configurations are offered in white, green and blue. Power rated models are rated 6A at 125VAC or 3A at 250VAC.

Anti-static features in TL series actuators withstand 20 kilovolts of electrostatic discharge and are available in two different actuator lengths of 11.0mm or 17.5mm with solder lug terminations. Constructed with glass fiber reinforced polyamide, the housing and 12mm bushing are designed to withstand harsh environmental conditions. The TL series' interior o-ring protects contacts from contaminants including oil, dust and water and an optional panel-sealed exterior o-ring conforms to IP65 standards.
