NKK Switches DSB Series

August 24, 2010

Miniature mercury free tilt sensor switches

The DSB Series of mercury free tilt sensor switches are engineered to replace mercury and pendulum switches and are ideally suited to meet product safety concerns due to normally closed (on) status. A through hole, PCB mounted device, the DSB Series uses a photo interrupter to ensure high reliability and sensitivity to very small angle changes, while at the same time supporting current environmental and green standards. Inside, DSB Series switches contain two solid-state devices: one an infrared light emitting diode and the other a photo transmitter.
