TE Connectivity / Alcoswitch ADE & ADF Next Gen. DIP Switches

TE Connectivity's (TE) / Alcoswitch ADE and ADF Next Gen. DIP Switches are designed for space-saving and streamlined manufacturing with high contact pressure, enabling aqueous cleaning without the need for tape sealing. The modules are available in a low-profile design with through-hole and surface-mount variants. For additional flexibility, actuator options include raised (extended) for the ADE series and recessed (flush) for the ADF series. The switches utilize a sliding-type contact, ensuring better performance and higher reliability over conventional seesaw-type contacts, and the gold contact plating provides high reliability and corrosion resistance. TE / Alcoswitch ADE and ADF Next Gen. DIP Switches offer better space management in applications such as industrial and automated control boards, fire and security systems, thermostats, elevators and escalators, and telecommunication devices.
