NewsSouth-East European INDUSTRIAL Мarket - issue 2/2005

Omron has introduced new high temperature versions of its D3V miniature unsealed switch designed to withstand temperatures of up to 200oC in domestic ovens and similar applications. Rated at 11, 6 and 0.1A the new Omron D3V switches use Polyphenylene Sulfide (PPS) plastic molding material because of its excellent high-temperature performance, inherent flame retardance and chemical resistance. The 6 and 0.1A versions are VDE and UL approved for an operating temperature of 200oC whilst the 11A has been submitted to VDE and UL for approval at 155oC. Omron has released the new D3V switches with the same range of actuators and contact layouts as the standard types. All are available with either internally or externally fitted levers, two fixing positions for external levers and a choice of terminal options. The switches are offered in SPDT, SPST-NC and SPST-NO configurations. The D3V 0.1A type features a gold alloy cross-bar contact ensuring long life expectancy and high contact reliability.
