The latest version of the Sanwa silent button (OBSFE-30) features a re-designed plunger, made from a rubber material, with a clear coating to give the feel of the original buttons. The newly designed plunger is the main difference between the OBSFE-30 and the earlier version of Sanwa silent button. The rubber plunger helps achieve the sound dampening.
The Sanwa OBSFE-30 is a 30mm snap-in style arcade button features a rubber plunger, which significantly reduces the "clicking" sound of each button press.
*PLEASE NOTE The name of this product is SILENT but for those customers expecting them to be totally silent, with no noise at all, this is not true. Compared to the standard OBSF-30 Sanwa buttons, these are quieter when pressed, as the rubber plunger helps to reduce some of the clicking noise when pressed, but they are not totally silent. Sanwa call this product silent but this is not strictly true as you will always hear some slight noise when pressed, which is to be expected.
Sanwa buttons are without doubt one of the best arcade buttons on the market and with the addition of the rubber plunger, they just got a whole lot better. The rubber plunger cushions the impact of the plunger on the base of the button greatly, reducing the clicking sound significantly.
This button is ideally suited for mounting in metal control panels, with a thickness of approx. 2 - 4mm and a 30mm mounting hole. Each button comes complete with a built in microswitch, that has 2.8mm terminals and a plastic clipper on either side that "snap in" to place when mounted.
Available in a choice of colours: OBSFE-30 Colours: Black - Grey - White - Black/Dark Blue
