Development of the "HCF Series" High-load Push Switch for Automotive Equipment

We are pleased to announce the development of our "HCF (High Click Feeling) Series" high-load push switch for automotive equipment.
This product was developed as a switch to operate automotive equipment requiring a high load such as keyless entry systems and car audio equipment.
It is one of the smallest keytop-attached push switches in the industry, contributing to the increased downsizing of equipment.
The switch's contact achieves high contact reliability due to its sealed structure. In addition, mounting strength is increased by maximizing the area of the terminal and soldered contact.
 The upper surface of the key stem (projection) has excellent operability, and with a guaranteed operating life of 500,000 times, this product has a long life span.
