The Honeywell Micro Switch is globally compliant and established worldwide for its extended life and repeatability. The technology was originally developed in WW II to support US aircrafts. Advancements in operating controls and packaging over the past 75 years have made expansion possible. Basic switches in the Micro Switch line are designed for absence and presence detection when physical contact with objects is not allowable. Since they only require simple on-and-off actions, they perform well in many applications. The standard basic and miniature switch families all include the V15 series, and are designed with the highest quality of standards.
As for the premium families, both subminiature and large switches were developed for high-precision processes where the price of an ordinary switch can be costly.
