MENTOR has for decades offered many different types of switches for THT (Through Hole Technology) mounting including toggle and slide switches, push-button switches and rotary switches, and this range continues to go from strength to strength. Today it is complemented by almost all models and types of switch also being offered for SMD (Surface Mount Device) mounting.

Particular importance has been placed on the gull wing connecter design of these SMD switches which provides advantages such as reproducible grid dimensions, self-centring features, good visual inspection and easy soldering and unsoldering.

Find out more about MENTOR SMD and THT Switches on the Standard Components pages.

Detailed specifications and part numbers for all MENTOR switches can be found in our downloadable PDF Catalogues.
