Is there a tactile switch that can be used while being constantly pressed?
Tactile switches cannot be used while being constantly pressed nor for object detection. You must use a snap-action switch or a detection switch.
Using a tactile switch that is constantly pressed or for object detection may cause malfunction due to deformation of the contact dome and may reduce its life.
