LED Tactile Switches
Tactile switches are small compact switches, designed to mount PCB boards, made to connect electronic components to form an electronic circuit. Tact switches require less force to engage the switch and in general have more of a ‘clicky’ feel when pressed.
PCB Tactile switches?
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.
Illuminated Tactile Switches
RJS Electronics supplies a wide range of tact switches with LED illumination. The following options are included within our LED illuminated tact switches.
Single Colour Illumination: component only displays single colour LED and when illuminated usually indicates the device is operational or signals fault.
Red | Blue | Green | White | Orange /Amber | Yellow
Dual/ Bi-Colour Illumination – a component that allows two colours in a single LED, this means the colour will change from one to the other but not display together.
Red/Red | Red/Yellow | Red/Green | Yellow/Green | Green/Blue | Blue/Red | White/Green | White/Blue
RGB illumination consists of red, green and blue LEDs. RGB illumination combine these colours to produce a wide range of hues of light.
Alternatively, if you require a non-illuminated version, view our non-illuminated tact switches here.
