Miniature Rocker Switches Now Offered with Gold-plated Contacts for Low-voltage Applications

31 December 2015

C&K Components now offers a version of its D Series miniature snap-in power rocker switches with gold contacts. Designed for low-voltage, low-current applications in a variety of circuits, the 1/2" x 3/4" (12 mm x 19 mm) D Series snap-in power rockers with gold contacts provide more reliable switching performance at lower power ratings than the series' standard silver contacts, which require higher power to resist tarnish buildup and prevent performance degradation. Rated for 10,000 make-and-break cycles at full load, and available with a wide variety of switch functions, actuators, mounting styles, terminations, and markings, gold-contact D Series rocker switches are designed to provide reliable, highly customizable switching solutions in a broad range of low-power lighting, data server, computer, peripheral, medical instrumentation and small-appliance applications.

A new version of C&K Components' D Series miniature snap-in rocker switch featuring gold-plated contacts better supports low-energy switching applications — those below 0.4 VA at 20 V AC/DC.
