MICRO SWITCH™ Basic Switches Line Guide - 7 Pages

The switch is on. Simple, superior, durable, and irreplaceable even by 21st-century standards, the MICRO SWITCH™ technology cycles on. Today, Honeywell Sensing and Control (S&C) manufactures millions of MICRO SWITCH™ basic switches annually for water and irrigation, aerospace and defense, industrial, off-highway, and medical applications. They are globally compliant, and known worldwide for their compact and lightweight design, accurate repeatability, and extended life.
Looking for enhanced accuracy and repeatability? Our premium line of MICRO SWITCH™ Large and Subminiature switches were designed for high-precision applications. Originally developed

26 A • Global approvals (UL/CSA, cUL, ENEC, and CQC) • Limited configuration options available
Benefits: “Standard” product line. Series for low cost-of-failure potential applications: appliances, gaming, vending machines, water heaters, and industrial controls.
PREMIUM MINIATURE/SUBMINIATURE SWITCHES
SM Series.
Features: Extended operating life
• Elongated mounting hole provides for easier, more accurate mounting • Choice of actuation, electrical termination, and operating characteristics (sensitive differential travel as low as 0,0254 mm [0.001 in] maximum, low operating force to 0,56 N [2.0 oz] maximum) • MIL-PFR-8805 qualified listings available
Benefits: Small size and light weight are combined with ample electrical capacity, precision operation, and extended life. Features high precision and repeatability. Options available (gold contacts for low energy switching, bifurcated gold contacts for maximum reliability, power load switching capability to 11 A). Potential applications include aerospace, instrumentation, appliances, office equipment, medical/dental equipment, valves, and more.
SX Series.
Features: Extended operating life
• Elongated mounting hole for easier, more accurate mounting • Choice of actuation, electrical termination, and operating characteristics • MIL-PFR-8805 qualified listings available
Benefits: Lower operating force provides for enhanced operation and application versatility. Features enhanced precision and repeatability. Covered case construc-tion with molded-in terminals allows for very simple adaptation to the customers’ actuation systems. Potential applications include aerospace, instrumentation, appliances, office equipment, medical/dental equipment, valves, and more.
to support United States aircraft in World War II, advancements in packaging and operating controls have helped further expand applications over the past 75 years while maintaining enhanced accuracy and repeatability. Our standard line of basic switches includes our V15 series, and is designed with the same high quality standards, but for low cost-of-failure applications – ones where the cost of replacing the switch is less than the cost of a switch failing.
MICRO SWITCH™ V-Basic series switches are often best suited for presence and absence detection where physical contact with an object is permissible. They also excel in applications requiring simple on-and-off actions.
