Modules that exceed expectations!

Panasonic Electronic Components’ Light Touch Switches, which are often referred to as tact or tactile switches in the industry, are momentary push-on switches to be used with a small current (rated 20mA and 15Vdc). They provide a unique sharp and clear click operational feel, have low contact resistance, small bouncing noise, high contact reliability and come in a wide selection of operating forces. As one of the top suppliers in the world, Panasonic Electronic Components also offers options such as super-thin, super-small, side-mounted, double-action, long travel (stroke), over travel, as well as surface-mount and J-bent terminal mounting options.
