An Overview of MENTOR’s SMD Component Range
MENTOR offer a broad range of SMD components including test jacks, SMD bridges and fuse holders plus side-button, top-button and toggle switches in many colours, shapes and sizes.
smd toggle switches
single-pole toggle switches
MENTOR's Toggle Switches feature a design that offers automated production machinery a large surface area for good pick & place suction, resulting in high production throughput rates. The solder tags are designed to flex slightly, ensuring good soldered connections in the production process. Additional fixing pins enable exact alignment of the switch during production.
smd pushbutton switches
The MENTOR Push-Button Switches are available in single-pole and two-pole versions. In 19“ rack system applications, they can be used as panel-mounted switches or as PCB-mounted reset switches. A fixing pin ensures correct alignment onto the front panel, it also provides physical support for the in-use actuating forces. Control knobs are available in various colours.
The MENTOR Top-Button switches are available in a wide range of actuator heights, with different colours and actuator sizes.
0Ω Resistance Switch
MENTOR’s smallest switch is the SMD Bridge – a 0Ω Resistance Switch. It has a wide range of 0Ω Resistance applications including service bridge applications.
smd test jacks
Test Jacks Ø2mm
MENTOR’s SMD series of test sockets are designed for use in front panel applications. They have proven to be highly-reliable over many decades.
smd Fuse Holders
TR5 Fuse Holder
This MENTOR Fuse Holder is the only front-panel fuse holder for TR5 fuse links. It enables front-panel fuse-changing with no additional tools.
