NKK Switches' G3T Series and G3B Series are ultra-miniature, process-sealed, surface mount toggle, and pushbutton switches. Device features such as their small size and light weight make them ideal for handheld equipment as well as high-density mounting. Both the G3T and G3B series feature NKK's award-winning STC (Sliding Twin Crossbar) contact mechanism.
Both series are also completely process sealed for automated processing techniques, including flux-cleaning procedures. The bushing and housing are constructed of one molded piece, and a rubber o-ring surrounds the actuator. In addition, a rubber seal surrounds the base where it fits into the actuator.
These devices are available in single pole or double pole. The G3T toggle switches can be configured in five different circuits, including momentary and maintained action, while the G3B pushbutton devices are available in momentary circuits. The heat resistant resin used to construct the housing, base, and actuator on the toggle and pushbutton SMT switches allows vapor phase and infrared convection reflow soldering.
