A micro switch, also known as a miniature snap-action switch, is a small electromechanical switch that is commonly used in a variety of applications due to its small size, versatility, and reliable performance.
The Features of Micro Switch
Micro switches are designed to fit into the smallest of spaces. They are commonly used in electronic devices to control electrical current very precisely. Here are its main features:
* Compact size: Micro switches are usually small in size, so they are suitable for applications where space is limited or a compact form factor is required.
* Snap Action Mechanism: They operate using a snap action mechanism, which means they have a fast and reliable switching action with a definite “click” and tactile feedback when the actuator is pushed or released.
* Long Mechanical Life: Designed for high mechanical life, they are with many models capable of millions of cycles, making them durable and reliable in a variety of applications.
* Wide range of actuator options: They come with a variety of actuator options such as levers, rollers, buttons, and plungers to enable multiple applications in different environments.
* Different electrical ratings: Micro switches can handle a variety of electrical ratings, including voltage and current, making them adaptable to different circuits and systems.
Applications of Micro Switches
Micro switches are widely used in many applications. For example, they can be used to detect when a door is opened or closed, control electrical current, or activate a device when a certain pressure is applied. Here are some of the most common uses for micro switches:
*Electronics and consumer goods
*Aerospace and aviation
