CUI’s Micro Rotary DIP Switches Ideal for Space-Constrained DesignsMarch 06, 2021 by Hailey Stewart
To meet a variety of design requirements, the rotary DIP switch models offer multiple termination types, including gull-wing, angled gull wing, and J-hook gull-wing as well as PC pin and crimped PC pin.
CUI Devices’ Switches Group announced the addition of micro rotary actuator types to its DIP switches product line. Housed in compact 7.2 x 7.2 x 2.9 mm packages, the RDS-7229 series features 4, 10, or 16 positions, a 5.08 mm pitch, and surface mount or through-hole mounting styles. Thanks to their compact footprints and IP67 ratings, these rotary DIP switches are ideal for a range of space-constrained industrial, commercial, or telecommunication applications where moisture and environmental contaminants are major concerns.

With a mission to provide OEMs with a collaborative design experience, we’re here to help you achieve your design goals on time and on budget. Formerly part of CUI Inc, you can trace our roots back to 1989 just outside of Portland, Oregon. CUI Inc entered the market as a manufacturer of high-precision oscilloscope probes but would go to grow their product offerings and expand their resources locally and across the globe In September of 2019, a group of senior managers deeply involved in the historical growth of CUI Inc—and with over 15 years of average tenure—spun-off part of the business. Thus, CUI Devices was born, offering a wide range of Interconnect, Audio, Thermal Management, Motion, and Sensor solutions Today, with proven processes and systems intact, CUI Devices will continue to be the familiar and trusted source for electronic components you’ve come to rely on—just evolved. We understand the bending and forking design journey our customers boldly travel. We’ve been on an unfolding journey ourselves. As we move forward, we’ll empathetically stay committed to your design’s success without distraction or delay. Our suite of online resources and knowledgeable staff are ready to help.
