I'm designing an enclosure for a device with a push button switch. The external button on the enclosure is physically large so I am concerned people will apply too much force and break the switch or break the switch off the board (if it's a right angle push button switch).
Most push button switches either have to be bottomed out or have a small widow where they are active so it doesn't seem like I can design the enclosure to ensure the user can always activate the switch but not allow the user to bottom out or over travel the switch.
I realize this is in someways a mechanical question but in other ways it's a question about the robustness of switches and I'm not finding much information on this.
How do I design for a push button momentary switch or what switch do I use to ensure that the user won't break it?
