Omron has launched two surface mount switches aimed specifically at high use switching applications such as lift push buttons, circuit breakers, digital pens and laser pointers.
D2LS switches have a rated life of at least five million operations and can switch at 300 operations per minute.
There is a standard version, operating at 0.6N, and a high force type with an operating force of 1.2N.
Both have the same life and offer a clear click during switching.
The swich is 8.6 x 4.8 x 3.0mm and sealed to IP40.
The normally-open silver 100mΩ contacts can switch 1mA at 6Vdc.
For auto-mounting, the switches come in embossed tape reels of 2000 pieces.
