£4.49£7.99

These kits allow you to mount PCB tactile switches (6mm x 6mm) to your project box or panel, to give a professional finish, and to add more flexibility to your projects. These kits are designed to use buttons as shown in the photos. These kits gives a gap of up to 4.5mm for the buttons – the body height of commonly available buttons being around 3.2mm.

You may use whatever height buttons you wish – so that you can configure recessed, flush or protruding button heads. We don’t supply button with the kits. Of course, you may mix and match the button actuator heights, to suit your needs.

Description

These kits allow you to mount PCB tactile switches (6mm x 6mm) to your project box or panel, to give a professional finish, and to add more flexibility to your projects. These kits are designed to use buttons as shown in the photos. These kits gives a gap of up to 4.5mm for the buttons – the body height of commonly available buttons being around 3.2mm.

You may use whatever height buttons you wish – so that you can configure recessed, flush or protruding button heads. We don’t supply button with the kits.  Of course, you may mix and match the button actuator heights, to suit your needs.

The kits with the Bezel are mounted slightly (approx 2mm) above the panel or project box. The kits with the stand-offs are mounted behind the panel or project box.

There are 4 different kits available in this listing:

1)            A Bezel with a PCB to mount 4 tactile switches

2)            A Bezel with a PCB to mount 2 tactile switches

3)            A PCB to mount 4 tactile switches with stand-offs

4)            A PCB to mount 2 tactile switches with stand-offs

Each kit comes with screws and instructions. We do not supply button with the kits, as you need to use buttons to achieve the recessed, flush or protruding finish that you wish depending upon the thickness of your project box or panel.

You need to assemble and solder these kits.

The PCB connections are as follows:

– A common pin for one side of all buttons

– A separate pin for each button

– An optional separate pin for the PCB’s ground plane, for shielding if needed.

How to use

Full instructions are included, summarised as:

For all of the kits, solder your chosen buttons to the PCB. For the Bezel kits, the PCB is attached to the bezel using the screws provided.  You may also solder a header connector into the PCB or solder wires directly.

The Bezel kit is then fixed into the panel or project box using suitable adhesive (not supplied). There are no visible screws. You will need to make a suitable cut-out to accommodate the Bezel.

The stand-off kits are attached to the rear of the project box or panel using the screws and nuts provided. The screw heads are visible on the surface of the project box or panel. You will need to drill both fixing holes and holes to access the button heads
