The switches are designed as dual-shaft models. The center plastic shaft serves as power switch. It has a length of 10 mm and 6 mm in diameter. The outside metal shaft with 12.8 mm length and 10mm in diameter is for the encoder.

The AC portion of the switch is configured for switching currents of 1 A or 16 A at 250 V AC respectively. On the DC side, the SDDE series switches 20 mA at 12 V DC. The actuating travel of the switch amounts to 1.85 mm. Zero standby power consumption is available by auto-off function with relay movement due to built-in both AC and DC contact in the push switch. The encoder features a long operating life of up to 30,000 rotational cycles. It is rated for voltages of 12 V DC and has a maximum operating current of 0.1 A. The encoder provides both pulse and absolute output signals.

ALPS’ experience in precision press and processing technologies made it possible to combine switch and encoder in one single product. The new products ensure more design flexibility for set manufacturers, and help them to produce more compact devices.
