**- Subminiature switch with a long stroke - Panasonic's ASQM
**-Panasonic Electric Works has expanded the switches family by the new subminiature switch ASQM. The ASQM is based on the 100 millionfold tried and tested turquoise stroke switch ASQ.
With its sliding contact and the compact structure, the ASQM (which conforms to IP67)
is the optimal solution for tactile detection tasks in environments where space
is limited and conditions are rough. Typically, the ASQM can be used for: Door
locking systems for the automotive sector, air conditioning in private
households, coffee machines, and many more.
The solder terminal type has a size of 8.3 x 5.3 x 7.85mm (LxWxH), the wire
leads type at 8.3 x 5.3 x 13.55mm allows over travel of 2.2mm for the NO and NC
Sliding contacts mean the contact force does not depend on the actuating path
but rather ensure a stable and even contact force across the entire actuating
area. Even without actuator, operation from the side is possible at an angle of
up to 40°. Of course, types with actuators are also available.
Plating on both sides of the sliding contact guarantees a reliable contact
making over the complete current range of 5V DC / 1mA up to 16V DC / 50mA.
