C&K unveils IP68-sealed, 3-position rocker switch

C&K Components has developed a new series of rugged rocker switches. Designated the FNR series, the 3-position forward/neutral/reverse switch provides 1,000,000 life cycles for each active position and is sealed to IP68 specifications. The FNR series has wire or solder termination options and is mounted with a snap- in mount. Capable of up to 5A resistive load, the switch is ideal for harsh environments, off-road, industrial, transportation, marine and military applications where strong switch feedback and high-current switching is pivotal. The series features two C&K NP series sealed pushbuttons that are RoHS-compliant with aluminum housings. The switch actuation force is approximately 8N ± 3N, and travel to contact is approximately 1.6mm. The rugged switch is able to withstand a vibration force of 10-500Hz per 10g and a shock rating of 50g 11ms sawtooth wave.

The FNR rocker has dielectric strength of 1000V AC for 1 min and initial contact resistance of 50m? without wire leads. The rocker's rated electrical load is 10mA/5 VDC for the gold-over-

Metway printed circuit connectors.

silver contact material and the silver contact version is rated 1A/28 VDC for 1,000,000 cycles, 5A/28 VDC for 25,000 cycles (resistive), or 3A/28 VDC for 25,000 cycles (inductive). Operating temperatures for the FNR series ranges from -40°C to +85°C.

ITT Interconnect announces new Trident High Voltage connectors

ITT Interconnect Solutions has announced a new connector series developed to drive forward increased specifications in many new and future customer products. Trident High Voltage connectors are aimed at applications such as electric vehicles and industrial devices which require robust and secure interconnects able to handle high power and high voltage in a small form factor interconnect. Based on ITT ICS's Trident Neptune connectors, the new Trident High Voltage series has a robust and shielded metal housing which is fully RoHS compliant, but which is 10% smaller than comparable interconnects, saving both space and weight. Trident High Voltage connectors feature a new insulator body design which enables them to cope with an operating voltage of 500V (AC and DC) and a maximum operating current of 34A (for wire size 4.0mm at 20degC). Safe and reliable, Trident High Voltage

connectors are fully VDE certified with 6KV rated impulse voltage. When mated, they remain sealed in conformance with IP67 against dust and water ingress up to a depth of 1m. Applications include hybrid and electric vehicles, construction vehicles, agricultural machinery, robotics and industrial automation.

New Molex Squib connector provides enhanced mating performance

Molex Incorporated has introduced the Squib Right-Angle AK-2 Cable Assemblies designed for fail-safe connections in automotive safety- restraint systems. In addition to automotive applications, the Squib Right-Angle AK-2 is suitable for agricultural equipment, (All Terrain Vehicles) ATVs and aircraft. The Squib AK-2’s ergonomic design eliminates connector snagging on internal vehicle holes, wires and the seatbelt harness assembly. An integrated, high-blocking force CPA (Connector Position Assurance) button design provides easy and reliable one-step connector mating and prevents premature locking prior to mating. The manually-serviceable CPA button can be easily gripped between two fingers and pulled back

into a pre-lock position with no tools needed. The welded-cable connection enhances electrical performance, while maintaining low, stable contact resistance under severe temperatures and vibration conditions for the vehicle’s life span. Available in multiple wiring configurations, the right-angle Squib AK-2 interconnect system meets major OEM requirements, ensuring compatibility with the two-way interface Code 1, 2 and 3, as defined by the global industry specifications ISO-TS 19072-4 and USCAR 999- U-002-1-Z03 (RevA00).
