Which basic switches have gold-plated contacts?
Gold-plated sliding contact: D2QW-C0
Gold-based contacts are resistant to environmental influences such as corrosion (e.g. sulfurization and oxidation) and suitable for microload switching. The gold contacts are crossbar contacts, as shown below.
The minimum applied load is determined by the contact material and shape. The minimum applied load varies depending on the model. Please check the catalog. If silver contacts are opened and closed frequently (preferably at least once a day), the contact surfaces may be cleaned by electrical opening and closing to prevent corrosion.
