Using Switches
When switches are actually used, unforeseen accidents may
occur. Before using a switch, perform all possible testing in
advance.
Unless otherwise specified, ratings and performances given in
this catalog are for standard test conditions (i.e., 15 to 35_C,
25% to 75% humidity, and 86 to 106 kPa atmospheric pressure).
When performing testing in the actual application, always use
the same conditions as will be used in actual usage conditions for
both the load and the operating environment.
Reference data provided in this catalog represents actual
measurements from production samples in graph form. All
reference data values are nominal.
All ratings and performance values provided in this catalog are
the results of a single test each rating and performance value
therefore may not be met for composite conditions.
Selecting Correct Switch
Select an appropriate switch for the operating environment and load
conditions.
Use the Selection Guide to select a suitable switch for the rated
current, operating load, actuator type, and operating environ-
ment.
It is not recommended to use a switch for a large current to switch
a micro current, in terms of contact reliability. Select a switch that
is suitable for the current actually being switched.
Use a sealed switch in environments subject to water, other
liquids and excessive dirt or dust.
General Information
Electrical Conditions
Load
The switching capacity of a switch significantly differs depending on
whether the switch is used to break an alternating current or a direct
current. Be sure to check both the AC and DC ratings of a switch.
The control capacity will drop drastically if it is a DC load. This is be-
cause a DC load, unlike an AC load, has no current zero cross point.
Therefore, if an arc is generated, it may continue for a comparatively
long time. Furthermore, the current direction is always the same,
which results in contact relocation phenomena, and the contacts
hold each other with ease and will not separate if the surfaces of the
contacts are uneven.
If the load is inductive, counter-electromotive voltage will be gener-
ated. The higher the voltage is, the higher the generated energy is,
which increase the abrasion of the contacts and contact relocation
phenomena. Make sure to use a switch within the rated conditions.
If a switch is used for switching both micro and high-capacity loads,
be sure to connect relays suitable to the loads.
The rated loads of a switch are according to the following conditions:
Inductive Load: A load having a minimum power factor of 0.4 (AC) or
a maximum time constant of 7 ms (DC).
Lamp Load: A load having an inrush current ten times the
steady-state current.
Motor Load: A load having an inrush current six times the steady-
state current.
Note: It is important to know the time constant (L/R) of an induc-
tive load in a DC circuit.

Application of Switch to Electronic Circuits
The Basic switch may have contact bouncing or chattering in
switching, thus generating noise or pulse signals that may interfere
the operation of electronic circuits or audio equipment. To prevent
this, take the following countermeasures.
Design the circuits so that they include appropriate CR circuits to
absorb noise or pulse signals.
Use switches with gold-plated contacts for micro loads, which
are more resistive to environmental conditions.
Switches for Micro Loads
If a switch for a general load is used for switching a micro load, it may
cause contact failures. Be sure to select a switch within the permis-
sible range. Even if a switch for a micro load is used within the per-
missible range, the inrush current of the load may deteriorate the
contacts, thus decreasing the durability of the switch. Therefore, if
necessary, insert a proper contact protective circuit.

Apply a contact protective circuit (surge killer) to extend contact du-
rability, prevent noise, and suppress the generation of carbide or ni-
tric acid due to arc. Be sure to apply the contact protective circuit
properly, otherwise an adverse effect may result. Some typical
examples of contact protective circuit are described in the following
table.
Typical Examples of Contact Protective Circuits (Surge Killers)
When a switch is used under high humidity, arcs resulting from cer-
tain types of load (e.g., inductive loads) will generate nitrious oxides
and, with mater the nitrious oxides will become nitric acid, which will
corrode internal metal parts and may cause malfunctions. Always
use a contact protective circuit according to information provided in
the following table when using a switch under circuit conditions of
frequent switching and arcing.
The use of a contact protective circuit may delay the response time
of the load.

Note:
When AC is switched, the

The operating time will increase if the
load is a relay or solenoid.
It is effective to connect the CR circuit
in parallel to the load when the power
supply voltage is 24 or 48 V and in
parallel to the contacts when the
power supply voltage is 100 to 200 V.
Energy stored in the coil is changed
into current by the diode connected in
parallel to the load. Then the current
flowing to the coil is consumed and
Joule heat is generated by the
resistance of the inductive load. The
reset time delay in this method is
longer than that of the CR method.
This method will be effective if the
reset time delay caused by the diode
method is too long.
Element selection
C: 0.5 to 1 µF per switching current (1 A)
R: 0.5 to 1 per switching voltage (1 V)
The values may change according to the
characteristics of the load.
The capacitor suppresses the spark
discharge of current when the contacts are
open. The resistor limits the inrush current
when the contacts are closed again.
Consider these roles of the capacitor and
resistor and determine the ideal
capacitance and resistance values from
experimentation.
Use a capacitor with a dielectric strength
between 200 and 300 V. When AC is
switched, make sure that the capacitor has
no polarity.
If, however, the ability to control arcs
between contacts is a problem for high DC
voltage, it may be more effective to
connect a capacitor and resistor between
the contacts across the load. Check the
results by testing in the actual application.
The diode must withstand a peak inverse
voltage 10 times higher than the circuit
voltage and a forward current as high as or
higher than the load current.
Zener voltage for a Zener diode must be
about 1.2 times higher than the power
source since the load may not work under

Operating Stroke Setting
The setting of stroke is very important for a switch to operate with
high reliability.
The chart below shows the relationship among operating force,
stroke, and contact force. To obtain high reliability from a switch, a
switch actuator must be manipulated within an appropriate range of
operating force.
Be sure to pay the utmost attention when mounting a switch.

Make sure that the operating body is set so that the actuator should
return to the free position when the operating body has moved if a
switch is used to form a normally closed (NC) circuit. If a switch is
used to form a normally open (NO) circuit, the operating body must
move the switch actuator to the distance of 70% to 100% of the rated
overtravel (OT) of the switch.

General Information
Switching Speed and Frequency
The switching frequency and speed of a switch have a great influ-
ence on the performance of the switch. Pay attention to the follow-
ing.
If the actuator is operated too slowly, the switching operation
may become unstable, causing contact failures or contact
welding.
If the actuator is operated too quickly, the switch may be
damaged by shock.
If the switching frequency is too high, the switching of the
contacts cannot catch up with the operating speed of the
actuator.
If the operating frequency is extremely low (i.e., once a month or
less frequent), a film may be generated on the surface of the
contacts, which may cause contact failures.
The permissible switching speed and switching frequency of a
switch indicate the operational reliability of the switch. The durability
of a switch is based on operation under specific conditions regard-
ing the switching speed and switching frequency. The durability of a
switch may not meet the durability due to conditions even if the
switch is operated within the permissible switching speed and fre-
quency ranges. Test a switch sample under the actual conditions to
ascertain its durability.
Operating Condition
Do not leave a switch with the actuator depressed for a long time,
otherwise the parts of the switch may soon deteriorate and the
changes of its characteristics operating may result.
Operating Method
The operating method has a great influence on the performance of a
switch. Consider the following before operating a switch.
Design the operating body (i.e., cam or dog) so that it will operate
the actuator smoothly. If the actuator snaps backwards quickly or
receives shock due to the shape of the operating body, its
durability may be deteriorated.
Incorrect
Snap-back
Shock operation
If stroke is set in the vicinity of the operating position (OP) or the re-
leasing position (RP), contact force may become unstable. As a re-
sult, the switch cannot ensure high reliability. Furthermore, the
switch may malfunction due to vibration or shock.
If stroke is set exceeding the total travel position (TTP), the moment
of inertia of the operating body may damage the actuator or the
switch itself, and the stress applied to the moving spring inside the
switch will increase and then, the durability of the switch may be de-
teriorated.

General Information
Do not modify the actuator. If the actuator is modified, excessive
external force may be applied to the internal switch mechanism,
characteristics may change, and the switch may stop
functioning.
If an external actuator is used as an operating object, check the
material and thickness of the lever to make sure that the force
applied to the lever is within the permissible range.
Mounting
Securing
When mounting a switch, be sure to use the specified mounting
screws and tighten the screws with flat washers or spring washers
securely.
However, the switch housing may incur crack damage if it comes
into contact with the spring washers directly. In that case make sure
that the flat washers come into contact with the switch housing as
shown below. Do not subject the switch to excessive shock or high-
frequency vibrations when mounting (e.g., do not use an impact
driver) as it may cause contacts stick or switch damage.
Incorrect
Screw Correct

Resin
Do not modify the switch in any way, for example, by widening the
mounting holes.
Locking Agent
If glue or locking agent is applied, make sure that it does not stick to
the moving parts or intrude into the inside of the switch, otherwise
the switch may have operating failure or contact failure. Some types
of glue or locking agent may generate gas that has a bad influence
on the switch. Pay the utmost attention when selecting glue or lock-
ing agent.
Wiring
Make sure that the lead wires are connected with no inappropriate
pulling force.
Mounting Location
Be sure not to mount a switch in locations where the switch may be
actuated by mistake.
Maintenance and Inspection
Make sure that a switch is mounted in locations that allow easy
inspection or replacement of the switch.
Mounting Direction
When using a switch with a low operating force mounted with a long
lever, make sure that the switch is mounted in the direction where
the weight of the lever is not applied to the pushbutton directly,
otherwise the switch may have releasing failures.
Terminal Connections
Solder Terminals
When soldering lead wires to a switch, make sure that the tempera-
ture of the iron tip is 380°C maximum. Improper soldering may
cause abnormal heat radiation from the switch and the switch may
burn.
Complete soldering within 5 seconds at 350°C or within 3 seconds
at 380°C. If heat is applied for longer period of time, switch charac-
teristics will be deteriorated, e.g., the case will melt and lead wire
insulation will scorch.
Soldering conditions are even more strict for ultra subminiature
switches. Refer to the Precautions for individual models for details.
Quick-Connect Terminals
Use the specified receptacles to connect to quick-connect termi-
nals. Do not apply excessive force horizontally or vertically to the

Wiring Work
When wiring a switch, check the insulation distance between the
switch and the mounting plate. If the insulation distance is insuffi-
cient, use an insulation guard or separator. Be particularly careful
when mounting a switch to metal.
Use wire sizes suitable for the applied voltage and carrying current.
Do not wire a switch while power is being supplied.
Using Separators
If providing sufficient insulation distance is a problem or there are
metal components or copper wire near a switch, use a switch with
an insulation guard or use a separator (order separately) to provide
sufficient insulation distance.

Soldering Precautions
When soldering by hand, place the terminal horizontal to the
ground, use a soldering iron with a suitable heat capacity and a suit-
able amount of solder, and complete soldering quickly. Prevent flux
from entering a switch by exhausting flux gas with an exhaust fan
and by avoiding the contact of the tip of the soldering iron and the
switch body. Flux gas inside a switch may cause contact failure. Do
not apply any force to the terminal or wire immediately after solder-
ing.

General Information
Operation and Storage Environment
Handling
Do not apply oil, grease, or other lubricants to the sliding parts of a
switch. The intrusion of oil, grease, or other lubricants into the inter-
nal part may cause operating failure or contact failure.
Operating Environment
A general switch is not water-resistant. Protect the switch appropri-
ately when using the switch in places with water or oil spray.
Do not use a switch under the condition where vibration or shock is
continuously applied to the switch. If continuous vibration or shock
is applied to a switch, contact failure, malfunction, or decrease in du-
rability may be caused by abrasive powder generated from the inter-
nal parts. If excessive vibration or shock is applied to a switch, the
contacts may malfunction, stick, or be damaged.
Mount a switch in the location where vibration and shock is not ap-
plied to the switch and in the direction where they do not resonate.
Do not use a switch in the atmosphere of corrosive gas, such as
sulfuric gas (H2S or SO2), ammonium gas (NH3), nitric gas (HNO3),
or chlorine gas (Cl2), or in the atmosphere of high temperature and
humidity. Otherwise, contact failure or corrosion damage may re-
sult.
If a switch is used in the atmosphere of silicon gas, arc energy may
attract silicon dioxide (SiO2) to the contacts and contact failure may
result. If there is silicon oil, silicon sealant, a wire covered with sili-
con, or any other silicon-based product near the switch, attach a
contact protective circuit to suppress the arcing of the switch or elim-
inate the source of silicon gas generation. Even for a sealed switch,
it may not be possible to prevent all of the gas from penetrating the
seal rubber, and contact failure may result.
Be sure to use a switch at a temperature and humidity within the
specified ranges. If a switch is exposed to radical temperature chan-
ges or intense heat, the characteristics of the switch may change.
Separate the switch as far as possible from sources of heat to elimi-
nate the influence.
Storage Environment
When storing a switch, consider countermeasures (e.g., storing in a
plastic bag) to prevent discoloration resulting from sulfidization of
terminals (silver-plated). Make sure that the location is free of corro-
sive gas or dust with no high temperature or humidity. It is recom-
mended that a switch be inspected before use if it is stored for three
months or more after the production, depending on the location.
Incorrect
Correct
When soldering automatically, adjust the amount of solder so that
flux does not float onto the top of PCB. If flux enters the switch, it can
cause contact failure.

Actuators (Sold Separately)
Actuators are supplementary components used when operating the
Switch using cams or dogs or when transmitting mechanical move-
ments that are not in alignment with the switch plunger.
The VAL models are suitable for cases where a Switch is operated
by a rotary cam or sliding devices with relatively low operation fre-
quency.
The VAM models are designed to operate in reverse movements
and have high shock and vibration resistance. Since the OT of these
models is rather large, these models can be used for automatic con-
trol or door switches of machining tools.
The VAV models can be used for cases where a small OF is re-
quired.
Note: 1. These Actuators do not include Switches.
