Tactile Button - SMD (6mm)

This is an SMD 6mm square SPST button. What we really like is the little button head and good tactile feel (it ‘clicks’ really well). This button is great for user input or a good reset button on a PCB. As this is an SMD component make sure you are well versed in soldering before attempting to incorporate this button into your project.

    I'm trying to get a dimension diagram for this, I assume it is the ADTSM6**V on the datasheet, but it doesn't look like it reflects the tall button. I'm I looking at the right diagram on the datasheet? is there a more precise drawing of this?

    Excellent little SMD buttons. they click very well and are tall enough for easy clicking, yet not too tall to be wobbly. I think i will be using these kind of buttons for many of my future projects.

      Hi, do you know where these are in the eagle library?

        SparkFun-Electromechanical > TACTILE-PTH
        Do try searching; *tactile*

          Hmm, do you mean? SWITCH-MOMENTARY-2PTH

          I just wanted to confirm. Thanks!

            Yeah, both the 6mm and 12mm ones should be in the SWITCH-MOMENTARY-2PTH device set - you'll need to make sure you select the right device (the actual switch type) from there, though :) This one should be the ~~TACTILE-PTH~~ TACTILE_SWITCH_TALL one.

              I'm a little bit confused... I am just about to make a list of all the parts for my pcb and was looking for this one. I don't understand why it says PTH if it's SMD. Please explain it to me, I'm kinda new to this stuff. Thanks!

              • Kamiquasi / about 9 years ago / 1

                Ah! Bugger - my extremely rookie mistake, I could have sworn these were the PTH versions.

                Just an update, inspecting the board I have figured out that Eagle has definitely made holes for this button. Also, I have sent my board for production. Maybe if this is the wrong button, we can find the right one? Thanks!

                • Kamiquasi / about 9 years ago / 1

                  Thankfully, you should be able to use Mini Pushbutton Switch instead. If not, as you've sent off for the boards to be made, let me know and I'll happily pay for new boards.
