High reliability and fast response: The D2FP ultra-subminiature base switch from Omron now at Rutronik

09/21/2023 Product News

With dimensions of 12.8 mm x 5.8 mm x 6.5 mm, the D2FP is one of Omron's ultra-subminiature switches. The changeover switches are characterized by particular durability, fast response, and high reliability. A sharp snap mechanism with a clear click sound as well as the light response behavior (OF = 0.59 N) ensure a pleasant feeling of use. The optical switches are particularly suitable for applications that require fast reactions, such as computer mice for eSports. They are available in packaging units of 500 pieces at www.rutronik24.com.

The extremely fast and, above all, the chatter-free response of the optical ultra-subminiature base switches, with a response time of just 0.015 ms, is achieved through contactless operation with sensors. The particularly long service life of the switches of up to 70 million clicks at a maximum operating frequency of 300 clicks per minute is made possible, among other things, by the stable structure of the springs produced by Omron itself.

In addition, the switches score points for their efficiency: the minimum output voltage when the button is not pressed is min. 1.5 V. When the button is pushed, it takes only 27 µs for the output voltage to drop below 0.4 V after the LED lights up. They switch particularly stably at an operating temperature of +5 °C to +40 °C and a maximum humidity of 60 %. The switches achieve their high reliability through improved resistance to changes in the application environment. Accurate mounting of the switches is greatly facilitated by integrating the sensors into the switch.
