DC Input Jacks & Plugs
Switchcraft’s DC Power input jacks feature a sleeve shunt spring that allows you to switch from DC to AC supply for your product. Typically this is used to change the unit from operating on the battery to either operating on AC voltage or charging the battery, or both. Additional switching circuits are also available.
DC Power input jacks are available in PC Board mount and Panel mount varieties. Many are compatible with automated manufacturing equipment. There are several pin sizes available: 2.5, 2.1, 2.03, 2.0 and 1.27mm.
Some applications require a positive latching mechanism. This is accomplished with threaded collars and bushings. IP68 versions are also available. Switchcraft can supply the plugs in a right angle configuration with an overmold process. The connectors and be assembled onto sensors, power supplies, battery packs and even custom cables to meet your requirements. Various colors are also available, with minimum order requirements.
All these products are available through distribution to meet your supply chain needs. Samples are available for developers.
