C and K Components has developed the RTE series of low-profile rotary DIP switches available in surface-mount and through-hole models.

The RTE series of DIP switches features SPDT, SP3T and SP4T rotary functions as well as rotary binary-decimal and hexa-decimal coding.

The switches are available in two versions, with the RTE B switches featuring markings with improved contrast while the RTE HR switches provide increased reliability to enable them to withstand aging tests that are the equivalent of 20-year usage.

The RTE series switches also feature a wider variety of positions as well as coding, shaft and termination combinations for increased versatility.

The RTE B DIP switches are said to improve marking visibility via a laser marking that provides light characters on a dark background, resulting in a high contrast level.

The coating features high adherence, along with aging and corrosion resistance.

Designed to withstand an accelerated life test of 3,000 hours at 150C, the RTE HR DIP switches feature a whisker-free contact plating for increased reliability.

The extended life HR version of the switch is available on request.

Typical applications for the RTE series DIP switches include timers and automation components, computers and peripherals, alarm and access control systems, and instrumentation equipment.

The RTE series DIP switches are available with gold- or silver-plated contacts.

Maximum contact rating for the gold-plated switches is 100mA at 30VDC, while the silver-plated contacts feature a contact rating of 100mA at 50VDC.

Maximum contact resistance is 100mohms.

Mechanical life is 1,500 actuations for the two- and three-position RTE switches and 20,000 actuations for the four-, 10- and 16-position DIP switches.

The switches are RoHS compliant and feature an operating temperature range of -25C to +85C.

The low-profile DIP switches measure 8.0 x 7.4 x 4.25mm.
