Description

General Information: EAO Series 96 is the finest low profile circuit mounted product in its category. The Series 96 is environmentally sealed, meeting IP 67 specifications (watertight to a depth of 3 feet). The design of the Form "C" Contact is unsurpassed in quality and reliability.

Mounting: Designed to mount on a printed circuit board. Since the low profile switch is completed sealed (IP 67) it can be flow soldered. A locating pin assures dimensionally exact assembly in rows or blocks.

Key Caps: Standard key caps for momentary or maintained operation feature four dimensions: 17.4 x 12.4; 17.4 x 14.8; 17.4 x 17.4; and 17.4 x 35.2 mm (0.685 x 0.488; 0.685 x 0.582; 0.685 x 0.685; and 0.685 x 1.386"). Euro-style key caps are 17.4 x 12.4.

Illumination: Key caps are available for use with one or two t-1 bi-pin LEDs (colors: red, yellow, green).
