The switch also uses a temperature resistant resin that enables reflow soldering at peak temperatures of up to 260°C, which is higher than most comparable alternatives.
The Omron A6SN is rated at 24V DC at 25mA, available with 1 to 10 poles and a flat or raised actuator. Insulation resistance is 100MΩ at 100V DC. The A6SN supports an ambient operating temperature range of -30°C to +85°C. Omron’s DIP switch range meets the requirements of many electronic markets including security, vending, industrial, process control and embedded applications. The product line-up includes industry standard types, low torque sealed switches and a number of industry specific models.
