Electronics Interconnect DIP SPDT switch switching

E-SWITCH KAD Series low-profile, DIP switch replaces the KAT Series DIP switch and can be ordered with 4, 5, 8, 9 or 10 positions that all feature single-pole, double-throw (SPDT) circuits with 2,000-cycle life expectancies. It can be mounted to the pcb via straight, through-hole pins or surface mounted via gull wing terminals. Both termination options feature gold contact material rated for 100mA of 50Vdc for non-switching functions and 25mA of 24Vdc for switching functions. While most DIP switches feature just “ON” and “OFF” functionality with multiple positions, product series is a tri-state DIP switch that features “high output,” “low output,” and “high impedance” or “OFF” functionality at multiple positions. This can be useful in situations where multiple devices are connected to the same bus and need to take turns accessing it. Devices are also available with an extended or recessed actuator, and the recessed actuator can be ordered with or without a top tape seal that helps protect from dust. Switches operate in temperatures ranging from -20° to 85° Celsius.
