Microswitches (also known as snap-acting switches) are very widely used in many industrial and automotive applications. They are designed to be switched by a mechanical actuator (E.g. a cam) rather than by direct manual operation, and as such are unusual in the world of switches. Their operate force is generally much lower than in other types of switch, and their no-stall snap-acting mechanism is designed to deliver a uniquely precise and repeatable switching action. Available in a range of industry-standard sizes, they can be supplied with a choice of button, lever or roller-lever actuators. Fully-sealed, pre-wired versions (such as ZF’s DC-series) provide a highly reliable switching solution for the most demanding of applications.
The NM02 series of centre-off microswitches from ZF are single pole, double throw switches with a 40° sideways actuation deflection. The NM02 series allows the actuator to travel to a max of 40° to either side with actuation possible at 10° deflection from the centre point....View Product
