Detector Switches are used to “detect” internal mechanical movements and convert human manual operations, such as the opening of a door , to electronic signals.

Panasonic Detector Switches use a mechanical sliding spring design to ensure consistent signal output. They also feature long travel, thin profile, compact size, light weight, highly flexible actuation angles and surface mount or J-bent terminal mounting options.

In some applications, Detector Switches are used to replace Encoders as a lower cost solution.
