RaceGrade Paddle switches are a compact solution for back-of-steering wheel placement. Suggested uses include up-shift, down-shift or other driver activated functions.
Non-contact Hall-effect switching for consistent long term reliability and repeatability.
Crisp, distinct operating feel by the use of strong magnets in the mating parts.
Adjustable stop to limit switch travel. It is recommend to set the stop at 1.5 times the electrical switch point. Allowing more travel is no concern but setting a tighter limit may result in a latched condition of the switch upon return to rest. Simply re-adjust to correct the latched condition. Eg: if electrical switch point is 0.67mm from rest, set physical stop equal to or greater than 1.0mm
Provision for mounting a wide variety of paddle shapes to suit individual needs.
Precision aluminium mating parts with black anodize.
Titanium pivot pin with krytox lubrication.
