The features of right angle illuminated tact switch

Right-angle illuminated tactile switches share many characteristics with standard illuminated tactile switches, but they are designed with a right-angle configuration to suit specific applications. Here are some common features of right-angle illuminated tact switches:


  • Tactile Feedback: Like standard tactile switches, right-angle illuminated tact switches provide tactile feedback when pressed. This tactile sensation helps users confirm that the switch has been actuated.

  • LED Integration: These switches incorporate an LED (Light Emitting Diode) for illumination. The LED is often positioned in such a way that it provides visual feedback when the switch is pressed.

  • Right-Angle Configuration: The right-angle design refers to the orientation of the switch's terminals. Instead of having straight-through terminals, right-angle switches have terminals that are oriented at a right angle to the actuation direction. This design is useful for applications where space constraints or specific mounting orientations are considerations.

  • Indicator Function: The integrated LED serves as an indicator, providing visual feedback about the switch's state or the status of the associated device. This can include power-on status, mode selection, or any other relevant information.

  • Aesthetics: Right-angle illuminated tact switches are often used for aesthetic reasons, contributing to the overall design and appearance of a device. The illumination can be in various colors for visual appeal or to convey specific information.

  • Applications: These switches find use in applications where a right-angle configuration is necessary or preferred. They are commonly used in control panels, user interfaces, and other devices where space considerations dictate a specific mounting orientation.

  • Mounting Options: Right-angle illuminated tact switches are designed for PCB (Printed Circuit Board) mounting. The right-angle configuration ensures that the switch can be mounted on a PCB in a way that suits the design and layout of the device.

  • Operating Force and Lifespan: These switches come with specifications for operating force (the force required to actuate the switch) and lifespan (the number of actuations the switch can endure). These specifications ensure the switch meets the requirements of the intended application.

As with any electronic component, it's important to refer to the manufacturer's datasheet for specific details, including electrical ratings, dimensions, and other technical specifications, to ensure the right fit for a particular application.
