Panasonic Electronic Components
Light Touch Switches and Encoders

Panasonic Electronic Components Light Touch Switches are momentary push-on tactile switches for use with a small current (up to 20 mA 15Vdc). Features include clear definite activation feedback, low contact resistance, minimal bouncing, and high contact reliability. Included is the EVP-AD Series, featuring the world's first open center space for LED's. With the center space diameter of 4.2mm, the EVP-AD series offers designers more LED options including color, intensity, and consistency. The durable design of Pansonic's EVP-AD series qualifies it for automotive applications. Other Light Touch Switch series from Panasonic include EVP-AF, with built-in actuator; EVQ-PL, with optional push-pull plate for improved actuation; double action series EVQ-3P, EVQ-PR, and EVQ-Q0 for camera shutter function; and EVQ-Q1, ideally suited for automotive applications with ultra high force and large push plate for superior actuation.


Light Touch Switches

Panasonic Electronic Components’ Light Touch Switches, which are often referred to as tact or tactile switches in the industry, are momentary push-on switches to be used with a small current (rated 20mA and 15Vdc). They provide a unique sharp and clear click operational feel, have low contact resistance, small bouncing noise, high contact reliability and come in a wide selection of operating forces. As one of the top suppliers in the world, Panasonic Electronic Components also offers options such as super-thin, super-small, side-mounted, double-action, long travel (stroke), over travel, as well as surface-mount and J-bent terminal mounting options.

Light Touch Encoders

Panasonic Electronic Components’ Encoders convert the manual rotary operation of an actuator or knob into coded signal outputs. The operation is similar to Potentiometers but the output signal is different in that it is a repeated pulse signal rather than a continuous analog signal. Panasonic Encoders offer options such as high torque, push lock, long life, push-on switch, water proof and center space.
