Measuring 7.2 x 7.2mm, these RoHS-compliant have a spherical actuator design for multi-directional, off-center actuation of ± 30. They come in a choice of silver of gold-plated contacts over nickel-plated stainless steel, with terminals made out of either silver or gold, both over nickel-plated brass. Electrical ratings have a maximum power of 0.4W for the gold and 1W for the silver. Both metals have a current range of 1mA-50mA, and a voltage range of 20mV-50VDC. All versions have 0.4mm travel to make. The STJ Series has 130gF, 200gF, 300gF, and 500gF actuation choices. The STJV, the right-angle version, has 200gF or 300gF actuation force. The STJ and STJV both have a stainless steel actuator and actuator cover with 6/6 Nylon switch housing, and the STJV's bracket is tin-plated steel.
