ITT's C&K ELUM Switches

ITT Cannon Electronic Components : 09 August, 2006  (New Product)
The C&K ELUM series of right-angle illuminated pushbutton switches from ITT, Electronic Components is available with custom snap-on caps. Customers ordering C22 actuator style ELUM switches with or without LEDs can now specify snap-on caps with a standard universal power symbol or a custom design. The ELUM Series eliminates the need for a separate LED and light pipe on a circuit board, and is the only pushbutton designed so the LED travels with the actuator, ensuring even distribution of light.
'ELUM saves a great deal of space on the circuit board, allowing for product miniaturization or greater on-board functionality,' says David Webber, worldwide product line manager for ITT, Electronic Components. 'We're able to further increase service and value to customers with our in-house capabilities for tooling the custom caps.'

The switch has a low 6mm profile and is available in through-hole and surface mount configurations. ELUM features silver- or gold-plated contacts that range in ratings from 0.01mA to 250mA and from 20mV to 50VDC. The latching version (push-push) can be specified for switching functions such as mode select and power on/off, while the momentary version is ideal for test, reset and notification functions.

ELUM switches are RoHS-compliant and compatible with high-speed reflow soldering processes. The 30,000 cycle life expectancy makes ELUM ideal for telecom, industrial, medical, automotive and consumer electronics. Standard pricing for 10,000 pieces starts at $1.01 for a momentary through-hole version without LED and $1.49 for a latching surface-mount version with LED. For more information, visit
