C&K Components’ line of compact PCB-mounted switches now includes two new medium-power switch series that feature either momentary or locking actuation configurations. Designed for through-hole PCB soldering, the PVA series short-stroke key switches are available in either DPST (double pole, single throw) or DPDT (double pole, double throw) configurations. With five different actuator height options from 13 to 23 mm (0.51 to 0.90 in) and actuation force of 1.2, 1.7, or 3.5 N, the PVA series switches can be used in a variety of control panel, automotive, and industrial applications for which there is a restricted footprint on a PC board as well as a limited throw distance. The PVB series low-profile push switches are designed for surface-mount or through-hole soldering and are also available in SPDT (single pole, double throw) or DPDT configurations. With a fixed actuator height an operating force of 3 N, the PBV Series switches feature locating pegs to facilitate proper insertion onto the PC board.
