MS.24 heralds a major breakthrough in movement sensing.

August '99 News

Assemtech has been developing switch products for almost 10 years. Environmental changes have changed the use of traditional mercury-filled movement switches and led to a strong emphasis on developing equivalent non-mercury products.

Assemtech has a proven record as a market leader in the development of this type of product with new designs accepted in the automotive, domestic and processing markets.

The new MS.24 movement switch is a major breakthrough in movement sensing. The switch uses an internal cylindrical contact which when it detects movement causes the contact circuit to change state. This design makes the contact very sensitive to movement and suitable for anti-tamper or interference detection.

Ideal for a wide range of environments

Additionally gold plated contacts and sealed construction ensures long life and high reliability making it ideal for a wide range of environments.

Unlike tilt/tip switches the MS.24 offers consistent sensitivity in all positions. The switch body is 10 mm long and 8,2 mm diameter and fitted with two electrodes for easy fitting to PCBs. Switch rating is 60 V a.c., max 0,25 A.

Assemtech will shortly be offering this switch in an encapsulated housing with flying leads. Possible adjustments to sensitivity will be available at a later date.
