The SMD component, available from Erntec , is mountable as a front panel component as well as directly on circuit cards and can be used in various applications. The SMD component is available as a push button and press switch with the same dimensions.
The compact form of the housing has a length of 16 mm and is mountable right behind the front panel. Additional soldering terminals and fixing pins provide security against mechanical strains, allowing for applications in sensitive medical technology or security relevant assemblies.
Special attention during the development of the SMD component was paid to the Gull-Wing connection, which has a wide spreading because of its advantages of reproducible spacing, self-centring effects and the soldering shadow problem. Inspection of soldering spots and an easy rework and unsoldering are some of the advantages of the SMD component.
The SMD press switch and push button systems are usable within a temperature range of -25°C to +85°C and can be used in various applications. An assortment of varicoloured control knobs made of PC and PPA furnish the application with a distinctive device.
The front side of the element has a desk-like chamfer that can be used for special labelling. Other colours apart from the standard housing colour “grey” are available on request.
