Detect switches are switches that help in detecting the position or presence of objects. They are suitable to use in many applications, like automobiles, telecommunications, appliances, computers, instrumentation equipment and more. Explore an exclusive selection of detector switches at Future Electronics that are available in varying maximum contact current, termination style and contact material. For smooth operation, these detect switches come in various actuator orientations including vertical or horizontal.
DIP switches are small switches that come in dual in-line package and can be mounted to a circuit board directly. At Future Electronics, we offer DPDT, DPST, SPDT, SPST and many other combinations of DIP switches that are categorized based on circuitry. We stock DIP and Rotary DIP switches from leading manufacturers. Choose them by refining the search based on number of positions, actuator style, termination style, current rating, voltage rating and more.
Encoder switches act as position sensor that determine the position of a rotating shaft. Highly durable, these switches are used in consumer electronics, navigations systems, elevators, test equipment and more. If you are looking for quality encoder switches, Future Electronics brings them from reputed manufacturers. Choose them from capacitive, optical, rotary, square and other encoder types that are available in varying supply voltage and actuator type.
If you’re looking for quality switch hardware, look no further than Future Electronics. We stock a full range of hardware and accessories to meet every need. Our product line includes everything from switch caps, ferrules, knobs, lugs and nuts to bushings and end caps! Search your accessory by type, brand and more for a hassle-free shopping experience.
A key switch is an important electrical component that can be actuated only by using a key. Ideal for use in expensive or risky manufacturing settings, key switches add an extra layer of safety by not activating the machinery when a wrong key is used. This feature ensures accidental activation of hazardous equipment. Find a wide array of key switches at Future Electronics. You can search by actuator style, actuation force, circuitry, manufacturer and more.
Push-button switches work on simple electric mechanism to activate or deactivate machinery. A push-button can push-to-make or push-to break (SPST Momentary Switch), where it makes or breaks contact with an electronic system. Industrial machinery or household devices like calculators and kitchen appliances, push-button switches fit specific needs perfectly. Find miniature push-button switches, illuminated switches, momentary switch, surface-mount switches and more here! Browse by voltage, circuitry or illumination color now.
Used mainly to power devices directly up to 20 amps, rocker switches are available in a variety of shapes and sizes. They got their name due to their seesaw-like mechanism with one end of the switch raised and the other end lowered. Find miniature or industrial switches from major brands at Future Electronics. Whether you need illuminated power rocker switches, subminiature rocker switches, waterproof rocker switches or single pole power rocker switches, we stock a huge variety to meet every customer’s needs.
Featuring a rotor, spoke and multiple terminals, rotary switches are a great way to connect two or more electrical circuits. They deliver greater pole and throw capabilities, making them ideal for radio frequency selection, voice and data communication, entertainment systems, automatic climate control and other applications. Choose from single-pole, 2-pole, 4-pole, 4-position, and miniature rotary switches only at Future Electronics. Use our search filters to browse by angle, circuitry or contact material.
Slide switches move from an open position to a closed position to enable the flow of current, thereby eliminating the need to splice a wire. Widely used in consumer electronics, they’re of two major types namely DPDT and SPDT slide switches. Future Electronics has a large inventory including PCB slide switches, 2-position, 3-position and 4-position slide switches, SMT slide switches and more. Make your next DIY project a big one with the perfect slide switches and other electronic components available here.
We offer a wide variety of snap-action switches that are perfect for easy and smooth maintenance of your equipment. Since they open or close an electrical circuit in no time, snap-action micro switches are used in home appliances, safety equipment, industrial machinery and other applications involving a valve that opens and/or shuts to perform specific functions. Find sub-miniature, miniature and general purpose snap action switches from top manufacturers.
Used mainly on PCBs to close an electrical circuit, tactile switches turn on only when a certain amount of pressure is applied. You can find illuminated, surface mount, hinged and sealed tactile switches that are ideal for use in low-power devices that require operator feedback for proper functioning. Some applications include keyboards, keypads, radio, telephone and other consumer electronics. Future Electronics offers a variety of tactile switches to suit the varied requirements of every project and equipment.
Ideal for use in commercial and industrial settings, toggle switches open or close an electric circuit using a lever. Our toggle switches come in a variety of sizes and handle various current loads, so you can find the ideal one that precisely fits your needs. Choose from the major types namely SPST, SPDT, DPST and DPDT toggle switches to connect one or more terminals accordingly. You can use our parametric filter to search by switch operation, circuitry, bushing type, actuator type, contact material or contact plating.
