Robust DIP switch has gold contacts

The WS-DITU is an improved DIP switch, enhancing Würth Elektronik eiSos’ product range. The gold-plated contacts ensure that the WS-DITU switch has a stable contact resistance, says the company.

The robust switch is durable and its pins are securely protected against deformation. The product’s unique design ensures the exact compliance to the grid dimension of 2.54mm.

DIP switches are used everywhere that specific, basic settings need to be made swiftly and directly on board the PCB. The WS-DITU DIP switch can be easily mounted manually and is available with two to 10 switch units (evenpoles). The insulation material has a UL94 V-0 flammability rating and is capable of operating at temperatures between -40 and +85 degree C. The rated current is 25mA, the dielectric strength 500V, and the contact resistance is just 50mOhm.

The design of the WS-DITU switch is patent-protected in many countries.

Free-of-charge samples can be provided on request. The switch is available from stock.
