Rocker-style switches for low cost panel enhancement

SCOTTSDALE, AZ — NKK Switches, a leading designer and manufacturer of innovative electromechanical switches, recently announced it has expanded its already extensive line of rocker-style switches to include the low cost CWSB Series of miniature, snap-in mounted rockers. Offered in both SPST and DPST, these switches are ideally suited for commercial, medical, transportation, energy and test equipment.

High quality and reliability for the CWSB series is ensured through stable stationary contact construction, polycarbonate housing and a polyamide actuator. Mechanical life is rated at 30,000 operations minimum and electrical life at 10,000 operations minimum with a resistive load and 6,000 operations minimum with an inductive load.

In addition to the low purchase cost of these switches, the front panel, snap-in mounting feature ensures labor saving installation; thus, making the CWSB Series an even more economically sound choice for design engineers.

The series' snap-acting contact mechanism delivers smooth actuation and audible feedback. Design engineers can also add visible status indication at a glance by electing to have internationally recognized standard I/O inscriptions to indicate ON-OFF status. The inscriptions are available in horizontal or vertical orientation. In addition, SPST throw models can be specified with a dot mark to indicate the ON circuit. Plain black actuators are available as well.

CWSB Series switches are offered in both single and double pole models with single throw ON-OFF circuits. Terminals are solder lug/187" quick connect and can be used with connectors to facilitate wiring requirements. Right angle PC terminals are a unique option offered for snap-in mounted rockers. The panel cut out is 12.9mm x 19.2mm.

CWSB switches are rated 6A@250V AC for a resistive load and are UL recognized and CSA Certified. cULus marking  is standard on all CWSB devices and all are RoHS Directive compliant.
