This single-pole, double-throw (SPDT) momentary switch can be used as a general-purpose micro switch or tactile obstacle-detector for your robot. The switch body dimension is 20.0 x 6.4 x 10.2 mm (0.79" x 0.25" x 0.40"), and the lever arm is 16.7 mm (0.66") long. This three-pin switch can also be used as a two-pin single-pole, single-throw (SPST) switch that is open or closed by default, depending on which two pins are used. The maximum operating force is 0.9 N, or approximately 90 gf (3 oz).
