Miniature Shuttle Push Switch.

Hosiden has developed a miniature horizontal-type shuttle push switch.
High-accuracy insert-molding realizes industry-thinnest of 1.65 mm housing as well as good push feeling and long life. Because the output of the lever direction and the push direction is independent, it is easy to design the circuit of the applied equipment. The switch provides the independent terminal that protects the circuit from static electricity coming from the actuating area.

Shuttle Push Switch

Model Name and Number

Shuttle Push Switch: HXW0786

Typical Features

  • 2-direction lever and push switch
  • Main body thickness: 1.65 mm (Industry thinnest and smallest)
