KX Precision Sine Switches

The Klixon® KX Series hermetically sealed sine switch is a precision snap–acting device. It is designed for use in the aerospace industry and for other applications where operational freedom from environmental conditions is a requirement. KX series switches are sealed within a one-piece steel case engineered to withstand extremely low or high ambient pressures. True hermetic sealing is achieved with a metal “wave type” diaphragm at the actuating lever. The actuating arm is keyed to hold the arm in alignment and to prevent damage to the diaphragm. The switching element is the versatile Klixon® sine switch. This simple, one-piece element eliminates knife edges and high friction joints. Rigidly supported at both ends and accurately prestressed in tension, the sine switch features outstanding resistance to shock and vibration.
