New illuminated pushbutton from knitter-switch saves space

knitter-switch, one of Europe’s leading switch manufacturers, announces a new illuminated push-button switch which saves space because of its very small foot print and height. It´s designed for applications which need a long lasting illuminated push-button where space is extremely restricted, e.g. small portable devices such as media players or infrared thermometers.


The new TSSL 4920x is requiring a space of 5x5 mm only on the PCB and with a casing height of only 2mm.


The LED is white, red, green, yellow or blue. The operating temperature goes from -40ºC to +85ºC. The mechanical life is minimum 1 million operations.


The TSSL 4920x, as well as the complete wide range of standard DIL, tact, rotary encoder, toggle and push-button switches is available directly from knitter-switch and a number of distributors throughout Europe. Samples are  available on request. For more information visit
