Sealed Micro Switch

likes it humid
Switching electrical power or signals has been a basic function for decades. One of the devices that perform this operation is a snap action based switch, manufactured in very large quantities by multiple manufacturers. The largest market segment in power switching ( up to 15 Amps ) is for applications with simple requirements, mostly in appliance related applications. A simple micro switch without any specific protection against water, dust or temperature will do the job.

Aerospace Foil Resistor applications

Circuitry for space probes, avionics and down-hole data logging must perform flawlessly under harsh conditions, including high vibration and extreme temperature changes.
Even a failure of a minor component can negatively impact—or stop—the performance of the entire device.
For instance, satellites have failed due to resistor malfunction.
