What is tact switch?

A tact switch is a switch that produces a physical sensation in response to its electrical circuit being activated. Like all other switches, the tactile switch controls the circuit. If the tactile switch currently has an open circuit, pressing it will close the circuit. If it has a closed circuit, pressing it will open the circuit.

What are the precautions for using the tact switch?

When soldering the tact switch terminals, if a load is applied to the terminals, there may be loosening, deformation and deterioration of electrical characteristics due to different conditions. Please be careful when using them. When using a through-hole printed circuit board or a circuit board other than the recommended one, the influence of thermal stress may change, so please confirm the soldering conditions beforehand.

What's special about our tact switches?

A tact switch is a switch whose operation is sensed by touch. The tact switch is generally composed of five parts: button, cover, metal round cover, base, and contact feet. The button can be square or round, and the height and pressing force can be customized according to customer requirements; the cover is available in plastic and metal; the material of the metal shrapnel is different according to the life requirements, and there are various service life for customers to choose; according to the shape can be divided into J-bent, Gull Wing, Snap-in, etc.

What users say about FEETECH

Procured from the company for more than 5 years, from the initial one or two products to the current BOM procurement, the product quality is stable, the delivery is timely, especially the after-sales service is very professional, I hope there will be more projects for cooperation in the future.

HJ Kim

This is exactly what I was looking for. No, I mean EXACTLY. We are a company that designs lighting equipment,We have cooperated with FF tech for many years. Most of our electronic materials are purchased from here. We cooperate very well from proofing, trial production to mass production.

Steve Reischel

Our company has ordered ICs, connectors, switches and other electronic components from your company since 2017. After years of cooperation and consideration, the products you sell fully meet our requirements and our company's consideration of product quality.

Natalia Wolfson

We have long-term purchase of PCB boards from this company, perfect assortment for various projects, and a great value for the money. The soldered holes and pads are perfect, markings clear, and they’re all trimmed perfectly with no rough or uneven edges.

Frequently Asked Question

Do you have any question?

Tact switches work when contact is made with the dome structure of the switch. This creates a contact to complete a circuit and the signal to complete the specified function. In order to achieve high quality, tact switches need to withstand a variety of uses and cycles.

Help needed identifying + and – on momentary tactile switch. There is no polarity on a switch like that. One switch wire goes to each of the legs you’ve chosen.

Mechanical stability. When soldered down with four leads the part is can’t move in any direction. The shorted pins makes the pinout slightly more versatile when routing a PCB. When introducing 2 extra pins for mechanical stability is probably cheaper (and more rugged) to build shorted pins than to add unconnected pins.
