Power PB Switches from C&K
Pushbutton power switches.
Newton, MA — CandK Components has developed a power pushbutton switch that incorporates redundant double break contacts. Designated the PWR Series, the RoHS-compliant and IP65-sealed switches reportedly provide excellent tactile feel with quiet detent. Designed with a SMD package, the PWR Series allows single-step processing of SMD boards. The momentary, single-pole single throw (SPST) PWR Series switches provide an extended operating life of 100,000 mechanical cycles.

According to the company, the highly reliable switches are vibration-resistant, making them suitable for challenging automotive, industrial and white goods environments.

The PWR Series is suitable for select white good and appliance main power, industrial panel, automotive, and computer and peripheral power switch applications.

The pushbutton switches have a voltage range of 20 to 250VAC, a current range of 10mA to 2A, with a maximum contact resistance of 100mΩ. The switches handle inrush loads up to 7A. The nominal operating force is 7N and operating travel is 1.0mm. Operating temperature ranges from -40 to +85°C. They are available in tape-and-reel or tube packaging.
