  • Hello and welcome.
Today we're looking at one of the most interesting switches I've encountered so far; a clicky Hall effect switch with counter-moving magnets. Hope you enjoy the video! :)

How does this design compare to the AT&T magnetic separation switches? Seems like those would have a bit more tactile feedback, but that might just be because the magnets are bigger.

I also wonder which design would work out more easily in a smaller switch.

Several people have asked this comparison. The mechanism is quite different actually, by the way. The AT&T is more tactile and not as smooth, from what I can tell. The Omron feels like it breaks cleaner; the AT&T switches have a "hanging" feel to them.
