'[EE]: Require special socket'

Here is something I have just never seen but need something to make this next project work.

We have a barrel type push button switch with LED inside, so there are 4 connectors on the end of the barrel, they stick straight out and are meant to be soldered to or have a spade type connector slide onto them.

What I want is a socket type connector so the switch will plug into the PCB at a right angle and no soldering or flying leads to connect, we are adding 8 switches so this will save much cost if it can be done.

I have contemplated small copper pieces bent 90 degrees and two of them side by side in a small opening in PCB similar to a 110AC wall plug but this would have implications at the wave solder station and be hard to deal with.

Any ideas people?

I could send a picture of the connector on end of switch to anyone wanting a better idea.

Richard.

For Richard

Send me a picture of your connector - I have a lot of oddball stuff around -
maybe I can come up with something for you.  Will need the dimensions and
spacing on the connector.

Look at using a card edge connector. Without knowing what your total
production is, it may be worth checking the switch pin spacing, and check
out a 0.1" or 0.15" or 0.156" spacing edge connector, and if your quantities
are high enough, you should be able to get them assembled with just the pins
you need. If you are looking at low quantities, then see if you can buy the
kits which are sometimes sold for OEM development work and assemble the
required contacts yourself. You may need to get on real good terms with a
rep to source the kits.

Doing this may put some restrictions on just where you place your switches,
but see how the idea works.

I would first look into getting right angle PCB mount switches.  There are
so many switch variants out there, that my first impression is there is
probably something suitable that mounts straight onto a PCB.

If no right angle switchies are already made, how about a PCB on the back of
the switchies that then connect to the PCB via a right angle header and
socket (or just the right angle pins if you do not need to remove.

Kat.
