Which basic switches are resistant to vibration and impact?
The larger the OF (operating force) standard value in the state of the button being pushed, the more resistant it will be against vibration and impact. Therefore, it is recommended to select the basic switch with the largest OF among available sizes and electrical ratings.
Since the contact pressure of a basic switch with high OF is high, it is advantageous against vibration and impact when the switch is in the free state (FP) (when used under the same conditions). However, vibration and impact are greatly affected by the direction of the applied force. Please evaluate the vibration and impact resistance by attaching it to the actual equipment before deciding whether to use the switch.
