C&K Components has recently unveiled a side-actuated DIP switch. The single pole single throw (SPST) TDP combines miniaturisation and high-reliability for logic switching within industrial controls and computers.

The half-pitch DIP switch features a dual bifurcated wiping action for reliable contact. Mounted horizontally, it provides visual confirmation of the on/off status and is ideal for logic switching grids where multiple signal paths must be manually routed via switchboards.

It is available in two, four, six, eight and 10-posiiton configurations and is 4.16mm above the PC board with a 1.28mm layout pitch. Process-sealed and RHS-compatible, it features gold over nickel over copper alloy contacts and a UL 94V-0 PPS flame retardant housing. The operating temperature range is -40°C to +85°C.
