Touch switches and tactile switches operate by touching or pressing to make a connection. Touch switches are touch-operated devices that do not have moving parts. Tactile switches are electromechanical and provide tactile feedback.

Pressure Switches

(780 companies)
Pressure switches are actuated by a change in the pressure of a liquid or gas. They activate electromechanical or solid-state switches upon reaching a specific pressure level.
IC phase-locked loops (PLL) are closed-loop frequency controls that are based on the phase difference between the input signal and the output signal of a controlled oscillator.

Toggle Switches

(378 companies)
Toggle switches are actuated by moving a lever back and forth to open or close an electrical circuit.

Rocker Switches

(340 companies)
Rocker switches are actuated by a standard or dual rocker or paddle.

Rotary Switches

(349 companies)
Rotary switches move in a circle and can stop in several positions. There are two basic styles: single-deck and multi-deck.
LCD switches and LED switches contain an integrated liquid crystal display (LCD) or light emitting diodes (LED) that show text and graphics. They can be programmed to perform specific functions and provide choices for the selected operation.

Transfer Switches

(208 companies)
Transfer switches transfer electrical power back and forth between two power systems or buses such as a utility power line and a backup motor-generator power supply.

Slide Switches

(193 companies)
Slide switches are mechanical switches defined by their method of activation. The switch is a slider that moves (slides) from position to position.

DIP Switches

(136 companies)
Dual in-line package (DIP) switches are electronic packages that consist of a series of tiny switches. DIP switches are used to configure computers and peripherals such as circuit boards and modems.

Disconnect Switches

(217 companies)
Disconnect switches rapidly disconnect circuits from power supplies in the event of an emergency.

Liquid Level Switches

(409 companies)
Liquid level switches are used to detect specific liquid levels or interfaces between liquids. These level measurements are indicated via an electrical switching action.
Thermostats and thermal switches are electro-mechanical on/off switches that are activated by temperature changes. They are typically used to control heating and cooling systems.
Suppliers of membrane switches and keypad assemblies using flexible membranes, domed or flat switch profiles, and tactile and non-tactile switches and panels.
CompactPCI switches and PXI switches are used in industrial systems to connect test points or devices to instruments for the purpose of testing, measuring or monitoring the system.
