The VX Series combines a miniature size mechanical switch's construction, operating and mounting convenience with solid state reliability. The switching element is a Hall effect transducer with a trigger and amplifier integrated on a silicon chip. An integral magnet molded in the plunger actuates the transducer and produces a digital logic level output. The VX operates over an extended supply voltage range of 4.5 to 24 VDC, provides reverse voltage protection and temperature ratings from -40°C to +70°C. Expected switch life is greater than 20 million operations (95% survival).
