Electro-Mech Pot Offers Rotary and Push-On
Rotary/push-on potentiometer.
South El Monte, CA — New from Electro-Mech is a potentiometer switch assembly that offers both rotary and push-on functionality for maximum operation control. The compact all-in-one SW44832 unit saves valuable panel space in applications where there are tight design limitations.

The SPST switch enables the user to specify a value so that at the push of a button, the circuit or channel automatically opens at the preset level. Equipped with an optional edgelit button and a momentary snap-click pushbutton switch, the product incorporates a 10k resistance potentiometer module.

The lightweight pot weighs less than one ounce (28gm) and measures less than 0.75 x 0.75-in. (19 x 19mm). The compact unit requires less than 1-in. (25.4mm) of space behind the display panel and mounts directly to the PCB via front facing PC pins.

The pot/switch is rated at 0.10A resistive at 30VDC. Potentiometer resistance is 10KΩ ±10 percent, but can be customer specified. Other features provided by the SW44832 include momentary snap-click switching, plunger travel of approximately 0.040-in. (1mm), and a rated switch life of 250,000 minimum actuations.

Typical applications for the SW44832 switch include industrial/avionics displays and audio controls, instrument panel controls, and other high-density panels.
