A6C/A6CV Rotay DIP Switch

Internally Sealed DIL-IC Type Rotary DIP Switch

  • A precise rotary cam and contact driving mechanism achieve compactness for high-density mounting.
  • Top/Side-actuated models available.
  • Insert-molded terminals and an O-ring sealed rotor combine to form a sealed structure equivalent to IP64 (IEC-60529) to prevent flux penetration and provides high contact reliability even in dusty locations.
  • Offset between terminal pins and side of case allows simple circuit inspection.
RoHS Compliant
