C&K Components has developed a rugged snap-mount interlock
pushbutton switch for door interlock systems. The reliable DS Series
interlock switch provides latching or momentary actions to deliver a variety
of integration options, including typical applications as a detection switch
or a circuit interrupt in harsh environments.
The single- or double-pole
double-throw DS Series switches are RoHS-compliant and made of halogen free
The DS interlock pushbutton switch has rugged copper alloy, silver-plated
common terminals and F5-rated, gold-plated over silver alloy contacts for
robust performance. The dielectric strength of the DS switch is measured at
1500V (50-60Hz at sea level) and insulated at 100m? (minimum) with initial
contact resistance rated at 30 milliohms.
"The DS Series switch allows for a multitude of new design options due to
its unique construction that combines quick assembly and prolonged
performance," said Vinny Acampora, product manager at C&K Components. "The
extensive electrical life of 100,000 cycles makes it ideal for
multi-function security systems, gaming equipment, commercial appliances and
even HVAC applications requiring frequent manual circuit interruptions.
