Electro-Mech is offering a miniature lighted or non-lighted pushbutton switch to be used in all types of keyboard matrix assemblies. These small switches feature momentary switching in a compact, 1.25″ behind the panel housing. With an extra light touch of just 8 oz., these miniature switches are ideal for any type of keyboard. High density mounting is also capable side-by-side on 3/4″ centers with an optional round slotted nut.

Positive action, reliable circuitry, and proven low-bounce characterisitcs are offered in this fully enclosed aluminum housing design, ideal for tight packaging requirements and keyboard assemblies.
