  • Can we get a data sheet fo rthis please.

  • Does anyone know the size of the mounting holes?

  • Can anyone recommend a connector to use on these switches? Or, lacking a solid recommendation, what are the dimensions of the leads?

  • Anyone have any comments about weather resistance of switch in an outside application? Appears to be pretty well sealed with the exception being the openings to prevent range of motion of the moving parts.

  • It looks to be similar to the three-terminal version, here:

    I’ve uploaded their dimensional drawing of that switch to Imageshack (to avoid leeching), here:

    I hope that this proves useful.

  • What’s its thickness?

  • Oops, sorry should have looked at the pics….

      I bought a few of these for CNC limit switches not realizing that limit switches are normally NC rather than NO (which these are).
      However, these are easy to pry apart with a fingernail and small screwdriver; there is actually a small tab connected to the NC position, so these are really three-terminal microswitches but the NC terminal is essentially clipped flush with the case. I swapped the two terminals (the small metal tabs easily slide out of the case)and so far it seems to be working fine as an NC switch now.

  • Is this a normally open switch or normally closed?

  • In reply to wayland, this is momentary. Once you stop pressing the switch it pops back up. Just a quick note:
    The one I go wasn’t blue as well, but it was also a completely different size than the one shown above. Mine was ½" wide by ¼" tall, with 1/8" leads sticking out the bottom. This size works even better for my use, but thought others should know.
    Maybe Sparkfun can update the pictures?

  • is this momentary?

  • Wasn’t blue, but worked great otherwise. Lever is great for all sorts of applications.
