The surfacemount switch is designed to work in tandem with other low-profile surfacemount components where space and height is limited. Feature of the switch include a 150° LED viewing angle, 50-mA at 24-Vdc electrical rating, 30,000-cycle life, contact resistance less than 50 m, insulation resistance greater than 100 M, and minimum 100-Vrms dielectric strength. The NL Series has a 160-gm force solid-detent tactile feedback, allowing for 0.5 ± 0.2-mm actuator travel. The switch and base are constructed of liquid-crystal polymer, its housing is nylon 9T, and contacts are silver-plated phosphor bronze with terminals of silver-plated brass.
