Application of micro switches

- Jul 13, 2020-

Microswitches have two main areas of application:

  • Firstly they are used when a low operating force with a clearly defined action is needed.

  • Secondly they are used when long-term reliability is needed. This is a result of the internal mechanism and the independence of the closing force on the switch contacts from the operating force. Switch reliability is largely a question of the contact force: a force which is reliably adequate, but never excessive, encourages long life.


Micro switches are very widely used; among their applications are appliances, smart doorlock,machinery, industrial controls, vehicles,  and many other places for control of electrical circuits
