A snap-action switch requires very little force to actuate. Common applications for snap-action switches include the door lock on a microwave oven, leveling and safety switches in elevators, detecting paper jams and other faults in copiers, vending machines, and arcade buttons. We see wide use of snap-action switches in appliances, machinery, industrial controls, and vehicles. With its IP67 sealing degree, the VM3S Series snap-acton switch is especially suited for applications in which dust and splashing water are a potential threat.
