TENROD has released the Alps detector switch. It is sensitive to the right and left and is best suited to detection of mechanical operations in wet areas.
The double-sided sliding contact structure is suitable for minute electrical current areas while assuring greater contact reliability. It has long on travel (single side:30°) and is water-resistant. It is free from mechanical operating noises.
The switch can be used for detection of in-car mechanical drives or at home for detection of mechanical drives in electric appliances to be used in wet areas.
