Operating Speeds

Chattering is when the switch repeatedly turns ON and OFF while it is in an ON state because external vibration or other force causes the contacts to open momentarily.
Bouncing is when the switch repeatedly turns ON and OFF because the COM contact bounces due to the shock from switching immediately after the switch operates.

1. Extremely Slow Operating Speeds

The contact between the contacts becomes unstable and chattering occurs.
Incorrect signals are output and arcing causes contact deterioration.

2. Extremely Fast Operating Speeds

The COM contact bounces due to vibration and shock.
Incorrect signals are output and mechanical stress causes damage.

Set the operating speed so that it is within the specified values.
