Cautions

●Handling

·Do not apply excessive shock. Doing so may cause damage to the Switch's internal components because it is designed for a small load.

●Soldering

·Terminal connections
Complete the soldering at the iron tip temperature between 250 to 350°C (60W) within 5 seconds, and do not apply any external force for 1 minute after soldering. Apply minimum amount of flux required. It may result in contact failure once the flux penetrates into the internal part of the Switch.

·Connecting to Tab Terminals (#187)
When connecting to the Tab terminal, insert the receptacle of tab #187 straight toward the terminal. Applying excessive external force laterally may cause deformation of terminals and may damage the housings.

Correct Use

●Mounting

·Use M3 mounting screws with plane washers or spring washers to securely mount the Switch. Tighten the screws to a torque of 0.39 to 0.59 Nm {4 to 6 kgfcm}.

●Mounting Direction

·For a Switch with an actuator, mount the Switch in a direction where the actuator weight will not be applied to the Switch.Since the Switch is designed for a small load, its resetting force is small. Therefore, resetting failure may occur if unnecessary load is applied to the Switch.

●Using Micro Loads

·Using a model for ordinary loads to open or close the contact of a micro load circuit may result in faulty contact. Use models that operate in the following range. However, even when using micro load models within the operating range shown below, if inrush current occurs when the contact is opened or closed, it may increase contact wear and so decrease durability. Therefore, insert a contact protection circuit where necessary.
The minimum applicable load is the N-level reference value. This value indicates the malfunction reference level for the reliability level of 60% (λ 60).
(JIS C5003)
The equation, λ 60 = 0.5×106/operations indicates that the estimated malfunction rate is less than 1/ 2,000,000 operations with a reliability level of 60%.
