Extra small and efficient: Rutronik introduces Omron's D2EW ultra-subminiature basic switch

06/29/2023 Product News

Ispringen, June 2023 – Omron's D2EW switch provides more design flexibility. The sealed ultra-subminiature basic switch enables multi-angle operation without the additional use of a lever. In addition to operation from above, this allows use from the side up to an angle of 90 degrees. With extremely manageable dimensions of just 8.3 mm x 7.0 mm x 5.3 mm, the D2EW is one of the smallest switches in the industry. Omron's switches and other products are available at www.rutronik24.com.

Features such as a left-right asymmetrical post and rubber boots in red and blue for NO and NC, respectively, ensure correct mounting and confusion protection. The switch's sliding contact structure allows quiet operation up to 300,000 cycles at 30 operations per minute.

Energy efficiency is also an issue for switches and so the D2EW scores with its minimum applicable load of 50 μA. It also switches easily at an operating temperature of -40 °C to +85 °C.

Additional benefits:

  • IP67 rated due to sealed construction
  • confusion-proof for NO and NC type, it is contributed by left-right asymmetrical post shape and different colored rubber sleeves
  • Available with solder terminals and long press-fit terminals

Target markets & application examples:

  • Automotive: door locking, detection, EV charging station
  • Safety systems: fire/smoke/gas detectors
