C&K Components’ three-position forward/neutral/reverse rocker switch features 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 5 A resistive load, the switch is suitable 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 1.6 mm. The rugged switch is able to withstand a vibration force of 10 Hz to 500 Hz per 10g and a shock rating of 50 g 11 ms sawtooth wave. The FNR rocker has dielectric strength of 1000 VAC for 1 min and initial contact resistance of 50 mOhms without wire leads The rocker’s rated electrical load is 10 mA/5 VDC for the gold-over-silver contact material and the silver contact version is rated 1 A/28 VDC for 1,000,000 cycles, 5 A/28 VDC for 25,000 cycles (resistive), or 3 A/28 VDC for 25,000 cycles (inductive).
