Short-stroke pushbuttons for equipment, vehicles and machines in the product range of ALDERS

Tactile switches are very small switches that are used for many different switching operations. As a rule, tactiles are installed for switching on circuit boards with SMD or THT components. An SMD component is attached using the surface mounting technology (SMT). In contrast to this, the wire connections of elements mounted using through-hole technology (THT) are pushed through contact holes in the circuit board and soldered. Due to their small size, the tactiles only require a little space and can therefore be easily integrated in complex switching systems. There they provide extensive applications. So that you find exactly the right tactile switches, we offer you a broad range of different switches and competent advice, should that be required.

At ALDERS you can, for example, find short-stroke pushbuttons with the following functions:

  • tactiles in different colours and forms
  • tactile switches with and without illumination
  • tactiles for circuit board mounting

In this area, we rely on the quality of the manufacturer NKK Switches. Special features of these switches are the high durability, long service life and the excellent price-performance ratio.

Tactiles by NKK Switches are high-quality and reliable

Short-stroke pushbuttons are among the pushbuttons that can be mechanically operated. The tactile switches are briefly pushed down and then move back to the starting position. This process triggers the mechanism where a circuit is either activated or deactivated. After the movement back, it is, however, no longer clearly evident in which switching status the short-stroke pushbutton is. That is why NKK Switches also offers an illuminated version. That way you can tell if the circuit is active or not. The tactile switches are often mounted on circuit boards used in equipment, vehicles or machines from construction or agricultural technology, aviation, military technology or naval technology. In these fields of application, the electromechanic components, such as short-stroke pushbuttons, must withstand high loads. That is why we rely on the short-stroke pushbuttons by our premium partner NKK Switches, because these tactiles are characterised by their very excellent quality and durability. Should you have any questions on short-stroke pushbuttons please contact our expert, who will be more than happy to help. The contact details are on the respective product page.
