    hi

    can you tell me how to make connections using a 4-Pin Tact Switch? I mean which of the 4 legs will be connected to input and output?

    A Quick reply is appreciated :)

    Can you provide the part number of the switch to which you have referred?

    You can download the datasheet and get the info you need.

    I have included a snapshot of the datasheet below.

    The switch should have one or more of the pins labeled on the body of the switch.

    Take a look at the diagram that I attached and you will see that there are two pins on either side of the switch. You should be able to connect the pin or pins associated with one side of the switch to the input to be switched and the other pin or pins to the output to which the signal is being switched.

    By taking pin 1 with 3 or pin 2 with 4 you have a simple switch.
