TACT ECO  Economical tactile key switches

Versatile TACT ECO switches provide dependable tactile operation at a very affordable price. Available in two popular mounting styles and several different actuator heights, units find applications ranging from single unit controls to high density PCB switching arrays. TACT ECO switches are the components of choice whenever cost is a concern and rugged reliability is a requirement.

  1. Heavy silver plated contacts for dependability
  2. Economical key switch with positive tactile feedback
  3. Vertical and right angle terminals
  4. Choice of module size and actuator length
  5. Special construction prevents solder flux build-up
  6. Sealed for wave soldering
  7. 500,000 operations
