Sicotast S7 is a discrete conductive dome switch from Printec-DS, originally manufactured by DS Keyboard Technic.


The switch comprises a dome, slider and shell. The switch assembly is designed to snap into holes in an underlying PCB, and the carbon-coated conductive pad on the rubber dome is designed to bridge conductive traces on a PCB. The specification describes it as being "Self cleaning about the silicon contact pellet" and "maintenance free".

The switch series is no longer listed on the Printec-DS website, but it is confirmed to be still in production with no plans to discontinue it.[1]
