[HELP] microswitch references for Roccat mouse tilt button ?
« on: Wed, 04 December 2019, 08:51:05 »
Hello everyone,

I own a Roccat Kone XTD mouse for few years, and unfortunately one of the "wheel-tilt" microswitches (the right one) is no more functionning. I looked on several websites in order to find a reference number for this little electronic part with no success.
I disassembled the mouse to find a serial number on the microswitch, but there is none (maybe at the bottom, but i didn't disolder the microswitch at the moment).
So I submit my question here, maybe someone more experienced than me could have an idea about the type of microswitch used for "tilt" button on Roccat mice.

Below, is the concerned microswitch, it's a squared electronic part next to the OMRON D2FC microswitch.


Thank you very much for your help!
Regards

any 2 pin mouse switch will do. the older mice used 2 pin panasonic switches, but there's lots of clones available now https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32834835349.html

measure the height and check the data sheet. it just has to fit, none of the other specifications matter.

Hello,

Thank you very much for your replies :-)
I'll follow your recommandations, by measuring the switch's height. I saw several references on AliExpress, so i'm quite certain to pick a compatible one.
Regards.

Aliexpress may be cheap but you can probably buy one closer to home and get it weeks quicker for a bit more :)

The bigger rectangular microswitches can have different weight though. I wonder if it is the same for the smaller square ones.
