Step 2: Consider environmental conditions Environmental requirements significantly impact the choice of a subminiature micro switch, especially in applications requiring high reliability and critical applications such as industrial control and medical equipment. Understand the environmental conditions of the application, including the contaminants that may enter the switch in the air, the liquid in which the button is located, and the operating temperature requirements. 

Step 3: Understand how the external dimensions of the switch affect other characteristics. The size is essential when choosing a micro switch. Switch size is directly related to its features, including current range, travel, and operating force. 

Step 4: Clarify the working life requirements. The reliability of the switch is critical. You need to know how many applications require electrical and mechanical operating lives. Different switches have different contact materials, housings, and terminals to meet various applications’ electrical and mechanical life requirements.
