Mechanical Displacement Amplifying Transducer

The buckling beam structure schematically depicted in Fig. 1 provides a relatively large horizontal displacement in response to a small vertical displacement.

Fig. 2 shows a switch employing the buckling beam principle. The switch is ultra sensitive, requiring very small pretravel with large overtravel capabilities.
