The RoHS compliant JS series of subminiature DIP switches incorporate several distinctive characteristics including both through-hole and surface mount configurations as well as the choice of four or eight positions. These end-to-end stackable devices have a sliding twin contact mechanism with self-cleaning action to provide smooth actuation and produce high contact reliability. The contacts are gold plated and prevent oxidation and sulfide effect. This contact mechanism also ensures stable contact resistance. The use of self extinguishing UL94V-0 certified material in the cover and base provides high arc resistance as well as high insulation resistance. The JS series is rated at 25mA @ 24V DC.
