Rotary switch

Lorlin Electronics continues to add to its highly successful range. The popular CKS and CKF rotary switch ranges already offer IP67/IP65 sealed versions and are now available as standard with low axial play, smooth feel and damped indexing for the pro-audio, broadcast and high quality instrumentation applications.

The complete Lorlin CKS and CKF rotary switch family offer a cost effective single wafer switch for a wide range of applications. The switch body is manufactured from UL VO compliant fire retardant material has a 27.5mm diameter with standard 30º spindle indexing and may be specified with either solder or printed circuit board terminals. Up to 4 poles are available per switch with a maximum 12 positions and shorting (make before break - 30º indexing only) or non shorting (break before make) contact options. An adjustable stop is provided to allow the number of positions in use to be restricted. Other special order options include 60º or 90º indexing, continuous spindle rotation and reinforcement ring and a moulded fixed stop.

These switches are available with silver, gold flashed or gold plated switching contacts. Spindles may be specified with full length flats. The CKS and CKF rotary switch families are rated at 150mA @ 250V ac/dc with an operating life >10,000 cycles. Operating temperature is -30ºC to +85 ºC and its proof voltage is 1,500Vac (Initial).

Rob Peach, Technical Marketing Manager at Lorlin Electronics comments, "I doubt if any other switch manufacturer can match Lorlin in the amount of customisation and flexibility available on our rotary switch range. This allows us to provide a rapid response to customer specific requirements and emerging new markets. Our new low axial play, smooth feel CKS and CKFswitches provide manufacturers of high quality systems with a switch that enhances the perceived value of their product by providing improved damped indexing feel. Our ever increasing range of rotary switches now offers design solutions for switching in applications as diverse as pro-audio, to outdoor security, and are ideal for portable equipment used outside such as marine, test and measurement, remote controls for vehicles. Typical applications for Lorlin’s new smooth action rotary switches include, audio mixing desks, broadcast equipment, studio lighting controllers, medical equipment and instrumentation".
