RAFI offers its short-travel adapter which combines the RAFIX 22 FS+ pushbutton with the MICON 5 tactile switch
The RAFI short-travel adapter allows the use of MICON 5 series tactile switches as a contact block for push buttons of the RAFIX 22 FS+ and RAFIX 30 FS+ control component series. MICON 5 buttons, by RAFI, are available with SMT and THT connection types for direct application on the printed circuited board. With a surface size of only 5.1 mm x 6.4 mm, a height of only 3.85 mm, and gold contacts, the tactile switches achieve a high level of switching reliability while requiring a minimum amount of space. The operating life is at least 250,000 switching cycles.
The short-travel adapter is easily inserted into the RAFIX 22 FS+ push button where it conveys the actuation to the short-travel keyswitch. Thus, both push button's specific characteristics can be combined if required: the modern function design of the RAFIX 22/30 FS+ push button and the distinct tactility of the MICON 5 tactile switch, with its short actuating travel distance and firm haptics. This combination results in a functional advantage due to the MICON 5's minimal mounting space requirements, allowing for the placement of various LEDs and thus the use of various push button illuminations depending on the application.
