PCB Mount

A PCB switch is a switch that is directly mounted onto a PCB (Printed Circuit Board). Surface mount PCB switches (SMD/SMT) are designed to sit flat, directly on top of a PCB. Through-hole or ‘thru-hole’ PCB switches are inserted into a drilled hole on the printed circuit boards and soldered to pads on the opposite side.

See our range of PCB electromechanical components. We have further divided our products int sub-categorised to help easily find the electromechanical components. Consisting of low profile Pushbutton Switches, LED Tactile Switches, Non-Illuminated Tact Switches, Pots, Encoders & Knobs, Relays, Toggles, DIP, Slide & Rotary Switches.

Poles and Throws

SPST (Single-pole, single-throw) switch has only got one output and one input.

SPDT (Single-pole, double-throw) switches have three terminals, one common pin and two pins which contend for connection to the common. Most suited to devices selecting between two power sources.

DPDT (Double-pole, double-throw) switches are essentially two SPDT switches that control two separate circuits and are switched together by one single actuator.

Momentary or Latching function

A momentary switch only works when there is force pressing the button, once this force is removed the switch is no longer engaged. A latching switch maintains the state once pressed, until the push button is pressed again to release the switch.

LED Illumination Options

RJS supplies both non-illuminated and illuminated push switches. Choosing what type will depend on the function and design of your product. There is a wide range of LED illumination options including single, bi-colour, dual colour or RGB LED illumination. How the illumination is displayed also varies. Variations include;

 

•Ring illumination                                                      •Dot illumination

push button switch with ring led illumination, panel mount                         push button switch with dot led illumination, pcb mount

 

•Custom text/symbol illumination                             •Full illumination

push button switch with custom led illumination, panel mount button                                     full led illumination push button switch, pcb mount

We operate Monday – Thursday 8 am – 5 pm and Fridays 8 am – 4.30 pm, call us on +44 (0)1234 213600 to speak to our Sales Engineers or e-mail us on [email protected] alternatively, leave us a message using our online contact form.
