`Two switches in one’ is how Cherry describes its new centre position switch, being able to open two circuits simultaneously.
When the actuator is in the centre position, both circuits are open. Moving the actuator left or right closes the circuit on the respective opposite side.
Measuring just 13 by 5.5 by 25mm, the switch is ideal for use in confined spaces. Contact rating is 5-100mA at 12V, and operating life is in excess of 100,000 cycles.
