C&K releases RM series of rotary switches

June 11, 2016 — C&K Components, a manufacturer of electromechanical switches, has released a small-diameter, rotary switch series. Available with two to eight positions, the RM Series of single-pole rotary switches feature a 9.2mm body diameter and gold-plated contacts for reliable operation.

Ideal for use in next-generation building automation systems, including lighting and fan controls, test and measurement equipment, and telecommunication and radio systems, the RM Series rotary switches deliver solutions for applications that require reliable multiple-position switches with positive detents that provide tactile feedback.

Available as a single-pole rotary switch with two to eight positions, the RM Series switches are equipped with either an extended shaft with one of two standard knob options, or a flush actuator with a screwdriver slot for adjustment. Gold-plated contacts provide reliable switch operating lifespans of 2,000 cycles, with operating force of 270+/-100gf cm. RM Series contacts are rated for 0.5A at 24VDC and 0.2A at 48VDC, with insulation resistance of 100MΩ at 500VDC, and dielectric strength of 500VAC for one minute. Operating temperature for the series spans -40°C to 85°C, and RM Series switches also feature insert molded terminals to prevent contamination during soldering.
