Compact switches benefit from short travel

Panasonic Industry is introducing a new series of durable thin type SMD tactile switches for miniaturized applications requiring a switch with a short travel distance for extremely quick output. The compact, robust EVP-BT series switches benefit from a low 4.3mm profile height, sharp tactile feel, low contact resistance and small bounce noise.

EVP-BT series switches are designed to offer high reliability with an operating life cycle of up to two million. Available with a wide range of variations—eg J-bent and straight terminal types with a total of 28 part numbers—the switches accommodate different push forces and vibration specs.

Panasonic Industry Europe’s Markus Lehmann said: “We are glad that we are now able to offer our proven switches technology with an additional profile height and straight terminals to serve an even wider range of applications such as smart home, energy or medical appliances.”
