What kind of micro switch is there?

There are many types of micro switches, and there are hundreds of internal structures. According to the volume, there are ordinary, small, and ultra-small; according to the protection performance, there are waterproof, dust-proof, and explosion-proof types; according to the breaking form, there are single Link type, double link type, multi link type.

What are the features of micro switch?

The micro switch has a small contact interval and a quick-action mechanism. The contact mechanism for switching action with a prescribed stroke and force is covered by a housing, with an external actuator and a small shape. Micro switches are composed of five major categories of components. The contact distance is small and the torque is large. Usually there is a drive rod on the outside.

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?

Micro switch makes physical contact with an object, When the plunger is in the released or rest position: the normally closed circuit can carry current,the normally open circuit is electrically insulated; When the plunger is depressed or switched: the normally closed circuit is open, the normally open circuit is closed.To help minimize mechanical stress and damage, you should make sure the actuator does not go beyond the allowed over-travel distance.

Micro switches have various types, including Pin plunger, Spring pin plunger, Spring short pin plunger,Panel mount pin plunger,Panel mounted (cross) roller pin plunger,Leaf spring,Roller leaf spring,Leaf lever,Simulated roller leaf lever,Hinge lever,Simulated roller lever,Hinge roller lever,Reverse operation hinge lever,Reverse operation hinge roller lever,Rotating operation,Flexible rod.

1,Electrical Ratings: As always, the first step is to figure out what kind of supply power you will be using for your switch. Is your power supply AC or DC? At what voltage?What is the largest current the contacts will have to switch? 2, Pole and Throw Count: The number of movable contacts you require determines how many poles you need in a switch. The number of fixed contacts determines how many throws, also called "way," you need. 3, Number of N.O. and N.C. Contacts: Normally open (N.O.) contacts remain open in their untriggered state and close when actuated. In contrast, normally closed (N.C.) contacts remain closed and open when actuated. 4, Enclosure: What kind of environment does your switch need to work in? Whether it needs to be waterproof and dustproof, etc.
