MICON 5 Mini, Advanced Haptic Switches


Designed for a wide range of applications including automotive, instrumentation, medical, test & measurement, and more, the miniature MICON 5 tactile switch is available with a wide range of operating forces to deliver the required haptic characteristics for almost any application. With an area of 0.2 x 0.25 in. (5 x 6 mm) and a height of 0.15 in. (4 mm), the switches use gold contacts to achieve a high level of switching reliability in a minimum amount of space.


Versions with actuation forces of 3, 3.6, 5.5, and 8 N offer graduated switching characteristics with perceived actuations that range from easy and comfortable to distinctive and firm switching behavior. The MICON 5 Series includes a low-noise version with an actuation force of 3.5 N. A MICON button without tactile and acoustic response is also available for safety-oriented applications and is used as a redundant extra key along with standard buttons in this series.


Depending on the selected operating force, the micro push buttons withstand between 250,000 and 1,000,000 switching cycles. MICON 5 switches are available with SMT and THT connection types.


Round and square plungers in various dimensions and lighting versions enable the use of the key switches beneath an overlay. A comprehensive range of illuminable and non-illuminable actuators makes the MICON 5 Series suitable for any harsh industrial, measurement/control, medical, and systems engineering application.
