Dearest PICsters,

I've got a product (with a PIC) that uses mecury tilt switches.  I am told
that several states have implemented regulations that require mounds of
paperwork if you sell any product with mercury in it.  They require you to
track all purchases and recycle the product at the end of it's life.  Quite
impossible for a $20 steam iron.  ( what, do we go to all the garage sales
in the state looking for our irons?  )

OK, we shoulda been so responsible years ago and not put mercury in our
products in the first place.  We might have saved a whale or two, or at
least prevented some mercury from leaching out of a landfill.

So we are looking for a nonmercury tilt switch.  I've seen one from Mouser
(part number 102-1002), but no mention of a manufacturer.  I'm trying to get
back to the origninal mfr to get away from distributor pricing.  Anybody got
any clues?

Walter,

Will this work with a vertical PCB? I want to use one with a vertical PCB
and determine when it goes off the vertical by about 30 degrees.

thanks,


Peter Grey
