quality momentary panel switch

by richardf on Sun Jul 25, 2021 12:01 am

I am looking for a push button that will be easy for the user to use.
My instrument has many encoders and one button which saves the current state of the encoders.
I have tried a few panel mount push buttons but do not like the feel.
As an instrument, the user's eyes are best not on the instrument thus the button needs to
have some size and good feel.

I was even wondering about a cherry mechanical switch.

Any suggestions?

thanks
Richie

Richie,

Sound interesting. What are you making?

How many buttons do you need for the encoders + save button?

I think the Macropad has got cool mechanical keys and a good look:

If you can deal with only four buttons maybe just the NeoKey 1x4:
