Q. Can you tell me what is the difference in knob position between latched-on and latched-off in mm of travel. I am looking for a mechanism that will allow me to use such a device in my model making that needs around 15 to 20mm difference in position. The switching will not be used.
A. Hi Ian, thank you for your question. The yellow part protrudes approximately 18mm when unlatched and 14mm when latched.

Q. I will use this switches on an organ pedalboard. When the pedal is pressed, the switch goes down and when the pedal is released, the switch goes up. So, what type of switch (Non-lock or self lock) should I buy? What is the &quot;travel to lock&quot;? Thanks
A. Hi nmarques. Thank you for your question. You would require a momentary version switch and the selected version can be used in either way but you will require this to be set as a momentary. 78-0501 will be suitable.

Q. What is the difference between a &quot;non-lock&quot; version and a &quot;self lock&quot; version of this switch? Thanks
A. Hi nmarques. Thank you for your question. Non lock means it springs back to previous position after you let go. Self locking means it stays put after pressing...press again to release.

02 February 2012 Question by: Jonathan | Product code: 78-0501
Q. Is there a way to mechanically link several of these switches together in such way that when one is pressed in the others pop out, so that only one is ever pushed in at a time? e.g. like an input selector for audio sources
A. Thanks for your enquiry Jonathan. No is the simple answer as these require mechanical force to operate them.
