    APEM SWITCH RATINGS Three contact materials are offered on most APEM switches. They are: gold, silver, and gold over silver.

    For “dry circuits”, which are defined as very low energy to 0.4 volt-amps max., at 20 volts max. (AC or DC), gold plated contacts are recommended. Gold does not oxidize and switch performance is thereby assured. The electrical effects of arcing, melting, or softening of contacts is negligible in dry circuits. If this power level is ex- ceeded, the gold plating could be removed from the contacts.

    For electrical levels above 0.4VA, silver contacts are recommended for reliability and long life. Although silver does tarnish, it is one of the best conductors, and the electrical energy is sufficient to break through the tarnish and insure reliable performance.

    UL and CSA are available on most power switch models.

    The gold over silver contact option is used by customers who have both dry circuit and power circuit requirements, but prefer to inventory one switch. The switch can be used in dry circuit applications (less than 0.4VA) however, once used in a power circuit, the switch cannot be re-used in a dry circuit, as the gold plating is effectively remov- ed in the power circuit.

    CONTACT MATERIALS Several contact technologies are available depending on models.

    For miniature switches:

    Q or A End contacts: silver. Center contacts and terminals: brass, silver plated. For high ratings at 125VAC - 250VAC or over 0.1A 30VDC (levels III and IV).

    G or AD End contacts: silver with gold plating over nickel barrier. Center contacts and terminals: brass, gold plated. For low level applications (levels I and II). Can be used for high ratings (levels III and IV) - the gold layer being considered only as protection against oxidation during storage.

    B, CD,LD Contacts and terminals: brass with gold plating over nickel barrier (levels I and II). X780 Silver rivet, gold plated (11000 and 12000 series).

    For low level applications up to 20mA 20VDC or 80mA 5VDC (levels I and II).

    For industrial switches:

    A End contacts: silver rivet or silver inlay. The contact material is indicated in the specifications of each series.

    C Silver plated copper or brass. S Silver cadmium oxide (4000, 600H, 600NH and 2600 series).

    High inrush currents: Several contact materials and switch constructions allow for particularly high inrush currents (see models listed in 600, 4600, 2600, 5600, 11000 and 12000 series).

    The 2 curves shown in this section feature all ratings available in our product ranges.

    Cross hatched areas show minimum ratings.

    Maximum ratings are indicated in the specifi- cations of each series.

    Note that maximum current is given for stan- dard life expectancy. For specific applications, higher currents can be applied.
