Modules that exceed expectations!

Panasonic Electronic Components’ Detector Switches are used to detect internal mechanical movements and convert those or human manual operations, such as the closing of a flip-phone, to electronic signals. In some applications Detector Switches have been used to replace Encoders as a lower cost solution. Panasonic Detector Switches use a mechanical sliding spring design to ensure consistent signal output. They also have features that include long travel, thin profile, compact size, light weight, highly flexible actuation angles and surface mount or J-bent terminal mounting options.
