Momentary switches: Change current with a pushbutton switch

A push button switch causes a temporary change in an electrical circuit only while the switch is physically pushed. A spring returns the switch to its original position immediately afterwards. A push button is typically made of plastic or metal and may be flat-surfaced or contoured to the finger or hand. Also known as momentary switches, they are designed and manufactured to the highest quality standards. We offer push button switch types in wide ranges from standard to IP-rated. Our portfolio includes Alcoswitch and KISSLING switches. Common applications include emergency stop (e-stop) and alarm switches, calculator buttons, doorbells, and refrigerator light switches.

Our portfolio of push button switches includes different LED styles and multiple mounting options, and we offer various colors, with different symbols on the actuator, like battery and start/stop symbols. Our momentary pushbutton switches are commonly used in A/V equipment, avionics, industrial manufacturing, fitness equipment, and test and measurement equipment applications. In addition to these classic applications, we offer reliable e-stop switches for products used in hazardous environments, such as emergency vehicles, work trucks, off-road equipment, and heavy machinery. Our pushbuttons are also used in applications in the e-mobility market, including charging stations.
