Latch type push button specification

A latch-type push button, also known as a latching push button or a push-button switch with a latching mechanism, is a switch that maintains its state (either ON or OFF) after being pressed until it is pressed again to toggle to the opposite state. Here are typical specifications and features for a latch-type push button:

Switch Type: Latch-type push buttons are typically mechanical switches that use a latching mechanism to hold the last state. They can be found in various configurations, such as momentary or maintained.

Operation Type: The latch-type push button operates in a toggle or flip-flop manner. Pressing the button once changes the switch's state, and pressing it again toggles it back to the original state.

Contact Configuration: Common configurations include Single-Pole, Single-Throw (SPST) or Single-Pole, Double-Throw (SPDT), depending on the specific switch design and application requirements.

Actuator Style: Latch-type push buttons come with various actuator styles, such as round, square, or rectangular buttons. The actuator is the part of the switch that is pressed to change its state.

Illumination (Optional): Some latch-type push buttons come with built-in illumination, often using LEDs. The illumination can serve as a visual indicator of the switch's status.

Voltage and Current Ratings: The switch should have voltage and current ratings suitable for the application. This ensures that the switch can handle the electrical load without issues.

Panel Mounting: Latch-type push buttons are designed for panel mounting, making them suitable for control panels, industrial equipment, and other applications where they need to be mounted on a surface.

Termination Style: The termination style refers to how the switch is connected electrically. Common termination styles include solder terminals, screw terminals, or quick-connect terminals.

Durability: The durability of the switch is often specified in terms of the number of cycles it can withstand before performance degrades. High-quality switches have a higher cycle life.

IP Rating (Optional): Some latch-type push buttons may have Ingress Protection (IP) ratings, indicating their resistance to dust and water. This is important for applications in harsh environments.

Locking or Non-Locking: Latch-type push buttons can have either locking or non-locking mechanisms. Locking mechanisms keep the switch in the toggled state until deliberately unlocked, while non-locking switches return to their original state when the actuator is released.

Application: Latch-type push buttons are suitable for various applications, including control panels, machinery, automotive, and other situations where maintaining a specific state is required.
