ALPS has developed this 2-in-1 switch (power supply and mode selection) functioning in a single package with a high-quality sense of operational touch.
This switch is targeted for fully automatic washing machines and other household appliances.
ALPS has accomplished the development of a single package that combines power switch and encoder functioning in a rotary-type power switch with signal circuitry.
The SDKU Series was developed based on ALPS many years of accumulated insert moulding technology and realizes encoder functioning for mode selection in the lower part of the product and power switch functioning in the upper part of the product.
Furthermore, the application of a detent structure with a heavy rotation torque sensation contributes to easy handling and confidence in operability for users.
Another desirable feature is a sliding contact-point structure which results in excellent durability against environmental conditions and repetitive motion.
