The MENTOR switch series use the same concept as the types that have been used
for decades and tried and tested a million times in industrial electronics. They are
developed to meet the special requirements of THT-technology. Push buttons and
switches play an important part in the area of front panel components. There is a
variety of types for specific applications. A fundamental differentiation results from
the way of operating those components:
tipping toggle switches, pressing, rotating,
sliding. Switches are offered as 1-
and 2-pole versions including a shifting
function. So called short lift buttons are
used for specific purposes.
