Push Button Switches

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. The pushbutton 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 and common applications include 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 as well as multiple mounting options, and we offer various colors, with different symbols on the actuator, such as battery and start/stop symbols, for example. Often called a momentary switch, push button switches are commonly used in applications such as A/V equipment, avionics, industrial manufacturing, fitness equipment, and test and measurement equipment. In addition to these classic applications, we offer reliable e-stop switches for hazardous environment such as for emergency vehicles, work trucks, off-road equipment as well as heavy machinery and applications in the e-mobility market including charging stations.
