2020 brought with it many trials and tribulations, but it hasn’t been all bad, has it? We like to look at the positives though too. A new wave of innovations and ideas also rode the wave of change that this challenging year brought. E-Switch released 3 new Tact Switches, each one with a specific function to assist our valued end-users.
Towards the start of the year, as the national lockdown was beginning, the TL6340 made its first appearance. The tiny right angle surface-mount Tact Switch left a big imprint on the industry. Perfect for small, limited space applications that still require quality, durable mechanics; with an IP67 rating and a mechanical life of 200,000 cycles, the TL6340 is up to all most all tasks you throw its way!
As Spring came to a close and state-wide quarantine still firmly in place, a new Tact Switch blossomed into the world, the TL9320. Another hardy switch with a moisture protection rating of IP67 giving complete protection against temporary water submersion; this combined with its 500,000 cycle life-expectancy makes the TL9320 well suited to a variety of applications in multiple demanding markets.
That brings us finally to September with the release of our most recent Tact Switch, the TL3145. With 3 actuation forces to choose from and 2 actuator heights available, this switch screams versatility. Not only that, but the TL3145 continues the theme for a rugged, built to last Tact Switch series. With an operating temperature of -40°C to 85°C and an outstanding 3,000,000 cycles using the 180gf option!
