Tactile switches from RAFI

Tactile Switches

RAFI MICON, RACON, and RF tactile switches come in a range of sizes and operating forces. This makes them variable enough for any application. RAFI tactile switches impress with exceptional haptics and tactility.

RAFI MICON 5 S
MICON 5 S

Versatile

Thanks to the higher IP 54/X7 degree of protection, MICON 5 S (sealed) tactile switches can be installed on PCBs protected against environmental influences by casting, painting, or nanocoating. In combination with the extensive range of accessories, the MICON 5 S is a universal solution for almost all applications. Various lengths, forms, and illumination options are available.

RAFI MICON 5 SL
MICON 5 SL

LONG LIFE

The new MICON 5 SL is the answer for applications with very frequent operation of the tactile switches. With an operating life of up to ten million operating cycles, the MICON 5 SL (sealed & extended lifetime) is the ideal solution for joysticks and other control devices that have to withstand high stress. The SL types are available in SMT and with two different operating forces.

Two channels

On the smallest possible area, the MICON 5 SAFETY not only integrates the exceptional qualities of the MICON 5 S, but also features two potential-free, separate NC and NO contacts. This makes it unique in this size worldwide.

Its properties enable especially cost-effective and space-saving design for applications developed to industry-specific functional safety standards – for example:

IEC 61508                               Basic functional safety standard
IEC 62061                               Safety of control systems
IEC 60601                               Medical electrical equipment
ISO 26262                              Road vehicles
DIN EN 50128                         Railway applications
DIN EN ISO 13849                  Safety-related parts of control systems
DIN EN ISO 25119                  Control systems for agriculture and forestry

MICON 5

Small key switch with a big impact: The tactile switches of the MICON 5 series stand out for exceptional tactile feedback. The gold contacts guarantee reliable operation.

RAFI RACON ST
RACON ST

Variable

Just like the MICON 5 S, the RACON ST (sealed & extended temperature) is fully sealed and can therefore be used on PCBs protected against environmental influences by casting, painting, or nanocoating.

Thanks to the extreme temperature resistance from -40°C to +125°C, RACON ST is an excellent solution for automotive applications or similar applications in the open air. A tight, rugged and gold-based contact system adds extra toughness and switching reliability. The result: absolutely reliable control for at least one million operating cycles.

RACON ST

The RACON ST seamlessly fits into your control system. This series offers the right tactile switch for every project: The RACON 8 ST and RACON 12 ST types are distinguished by different dimensions and operating forces. Both are available in SMT and THT versions.

RF tactile switches
RF 15/19

PRACTICE-PROVEN

The RF series from RAFI offers you a milestone in key switch development which has become industry standard today. The RF 15 measures 15 x 15 mm, while the RF 19 comes in the dimensions 19 x 19 mm. Outstanding qualities of the tactile switch are its full-area illumination, excellent tactility, and exceptional acoustics. All this makes it especially suitable for low profile data entry systems with keycaps or overlays.

  • Special tactile feedback
  • Long service life
  • Various illumination options – full surface or spot illumination
  • Key switches for membrane keyboards or under keycaps
KN 19 MEMBRANE-COVERED MAINS SWITCH
KN 19

MEMBRANE-COVERED MAINS SWITCH

The KN 19 short-travel mains switch is unique worldwide and can reliably switch up to 6 A with an operating travel of only 0.55 mm.  That makes it ideal for membrane-covered, low-profile data entry systems. This means that the mains switch does not require any cut-outs in the overlay and the KN 19 can easily be integrated in the overlay design. The standard overall height of 9.7 mm means you can combine the mains switch with other RAFI tactile switches and electronic components on a shared PCB.

  • Special tactile feedback
  • Contact type: change-over
  • Compatible with 9.2 mm system configuration
  • Approvals: UL, CCC, VDE, CSA
