Durable, compact side push switch

03 June 2014

ALPS believes its SKTD series suits smartphone and mobile devices’ space restrictions and environmental conditions.

The IP67-rated TACT switch meets the industry requirements for the electronic components used in them to be ever smaller and thinner. Switches employed in these devices, in addition to being compact, must also be reliable with the durability to withstand unexpected events such as dropping, as well as dust and water resistance to allow outdoor use.

The height of the switch above the PCB is restricted to 1.55mm. The construction was optimized for surface mounting to ensure outstanding strength when installed and to realize both an excellent operating feel and long operating life.

The hermetically sealed contact structure conforms to IP67, created through application of proprietary mechanical engineering technology.

The surface mount device can be installed directly on a PCB, a flexible or sub PCB for connecting switch and board is not required, reducing cost in the final product, says the company.
