NKK Switches' G Series
rocker and toggle switches are PCB-mounted and feature NKK's
Sliding Twin Crossbar (STC) contacts for logic-level
switching. Combined with a miniature size and 0.25 gm, these
toggle and rocker switches are well-suited for rugged applications where panel
space is at a premium or where high-density mounting is required.
These devices are process sealed for automated processing
techniques, including flux-cleaning procedures. In addition, the STC contacts
self-clean with every actuation.
Each G Series switch can be specified in a single or double
pole configuration (SPDT or DPDT). Five different circuit combinations are also
available, including momentary and maintained options with up to three actuator
positions each. PC terminal-style mounting can be specified in straight, right
angle or vertical mount for toggle switches, and straight PC or right angle
mount for rocker versions.
Additional options include rocker caps that can be ordered
in standard colors of red, black or white. Custom colors are available upon
Terminal spacing of G Series devices is 2.54 x 2.54 mm,
conforming to standard PCB grid layout. These switches are rated at 0.4VA
maximum @ 28V ac/dc maximum.
Producing high-quality end-production metal parts with additive manufacturing for applications like aerospace and medical requires very tightly controlled processes and materials. New standards and guidelines for machines and processes, materials, and printed parts are underway from bodies such as ASTM International.
Engineers at the University of San Diego’s Jacobs School of Engineering have designed biobatteries on commercial tattoo paper, with an anode and cathode screen-printed on and modified to harvest energy from lactate in a person’s sweat.
