161 ribbon switches have special physical properties that allow them to be curved laterally to a 30 inch radius when used in a sensing edge housing. They can also be inserted in a heavy-duty rubber sheath (Type 161-FSA), or used unsheathed (Type 161-FS).
Ribbon switch actuation force:
8 oz. (2 N) unsheathed.
80 oz. (22 N) in rubber sheath.
Mounting is by means of double-faced tape. Length is cut to customer requirements.
• Custom switch lengths
• Custom lead lengths
• Fail-Safe leads
• Air leak test
• Adhesive backing
