C&K Components has developed a new series of microminiature SMT
top-actuated switches. Designated the PTS 810 Series, the microminiature
switch has a 4.2 x 3.2mm footprint, 2.5mm height, and is ideal for control
panels, nomad devices, remote controls, and keyless entry systems. Featuring
color-coded actuators, the PTS 810 Series provides easy identification for
design engineers using multiple switches within a single system. In
addition, the PTS 810 Series switches deliver operational life spans up to
The PTS 810 Series is comprised of four unique switch designs with varying
operating forces (gf) and life cycles. The PTS810 SJM 250 has a gray
actuator, 160 +/- 50gf, and 150,000 cycles. The SJK has a white actuator,
260 +/- 70gf, and 50,000 cycles. The SJG has a blue actuator, 400 +/- 100gf,
and 100,000 cycles. The SJS has a gray actuator, 600 +/- 150gf, and 150,000
"The PTS 810 Series solves many issues design engineers regularly face by
providing color-coded actuators that enable simple visual identification of
switches, as well as a wide range of options for both operating life and
force to meet application requirements," said Jerome Smolinski, C&K senior
The PTS 810 Series momentary action switches are equipped with J-type
terminals for SMT use and a .15mm-.20mm +/- 0.1 mm travel. The RoHS
compliant and halogen/lead free PTS 810 Series switches are available with
silver over nickel plate terminals and feature an operating temperature of
-40°C to 85°C and a contact rating of 1mA @ 16VDC.
Measuring a slight 3.0 x 2.0 x 0.58mm, the new KXT Series momentary action switches are rated for a range of operating forces with an operating life of 300,000 cycles. The ultra low profile, top-actuated surface mount switch can be used in applic...
