Microswitch saves space in building automation

With the launch of the D2F-5 subminiature switch, Omron Electronic Components Europe says it has introduced its smallest ever microswitch with 5A rating.

The D2F-5 microswitch will push designers to minimise the application size, says the company. The rating of 5A means that the subminiature switches are suitable for high current applications. They have a minimum durability of 10,000 actions.

The D2F-5 switch measures just 5.7 x 12.7mm and a height from 5.5mm, depending on the operating lever chosen. The switches incorporate a snapping mechanism with two highly precise split springs that ensure long service life, assures Omron, while flux penetration is prevented by using insertion moulded terminals. The D2F-5 switch is available in variety of terminal variations including self-clinching PCB, left angled, right angled terminals, solder terminals and compact solder terminals.

Applications include building automation, ventilation and temperature control, safety and security, smart meters, lifts and elevators.

Omron Electronic Components Europe supplies electromechanical PCB relays, as well as components such as micro switches, MOSFET relays, DIP switches, photomicrosensors and connectors. Its portfolio of technologies includes MEMS based pressure, flow and thermal measurement sensors, human face and gesture recognition modules, vibration and tilt sensors.

Omron Electronic Components Europe supports its customers in Western and Eastern Europe, Russia and the CIS through eight regional offices, a network of local offices and partnerships with specialist, local, regional and global distributors.
