NKK Switches announced its KP02 series of audio/video pushbutton switches that actuate with shorter strokes. These switches feature a total travel of .138" (3.5 mm), pre-travel is .091" (2.3 mm) and over-travel is 0.47" (1.2 mm). Their compact design has a height of .906" (23.0 mm) from the PC board to the top of the cap, and actuation force is 1.6N. The switches are available in three common sizes of 17.4 mm, 15 mm and 12 mm. They feature snap-in standoffs for secure PC board mounting and alignment. An actuation guide gives positive indication of circuit transfer, and a smooth and silent actuation. The pushbutton comes standard with red/green built-in LEDs which can be combined to produce amber. RGB LEDs are also available.
