Subminiature size saves space on PC boards. Specifically developed for logic-level applications. Totally sealed body construction prevents contact contamination and allows time- and moneysaving automated soldering and cleaning. Award-winning STC contact mechanism with benefits unavailable in conventional mechanisms: smoother, positive detent actuation, increased contact stability and unparalleled logic-level reliability. (Additional STC details in Terms & Acronyms; see Supplement section.) Molded-in, epoxy sealed or ultrasonically welded terminals lock out flux, solvents, and other x 2.54mm) terminal spacing conforms to standard PC board grid spacing. Matching indicators available and shown at the end of Section M.
Logic Level: 0.4VA maximum @ 28V AC/DC maximum (Applicable Range ~ 28V) Note: Find additional explanation of operating range in Supplement section.

UL Recognition or CSA Certification: The A Series rockers have not been tested for UL recognition or CSA certification. These switches are designed for use in a low-voltage, low-current, logic-level circuit. When used as intended in a logic-level circuit, the results do not produce hazardous energy.
