Micro rotary DIP switches for space-constrained designs

CUI Devices’ Switches Group has announced the addition of micro rotary actuator types to its DIP switches product line.

Housed in compact 7.2 x 7.2 x 2.9mm packages, the RDS-7229 series features 4, 10, or 16 positions, a 5.08 mm pitch, and surface mount or through hole mounting styles. Thanks to their compact footprints and IP67 ratings, these rotary switches are suitable for a range of space-constrained industrial, commercial, or telecommunication applications where moisture and environmental contaminants are major concerns.

To meet a variety of design requirements, the rotary DIP switch models offer multiple termination types, including gull wing, angled gull wing, and J-hook gull wing as well as PC pin and crimped PC pin.

The models also feature raised or flat actuator levels with arrow, cross, or slotted actuator styles.

Carrying operating temperature ranges from -40 to 85°C, the micro rotary DIP switches hold 50 Vdc switching/non-switching rated voltages and 100 mA switching/non-switching rated currents.
