  • Product Description

    Please measure your Fightstick Button Hole Before Purchasing PS-14-G/D

    The Seimitsu PS-14-G and PS-14-D model has a slightly wider housing diameter, which makes it incompatible with a number of Fightsticks whose action button layout adhere strictly to the diameter of Sanwa's 29.5mm button housing

    • PS-14-D 24mm housing diameter is 23.65mm
    • PS-14-G 30mm housing diameter is 29.75MM

    Please make sure your Fightstick's button holes have at least a +.25mm tolerance for the housing (29.75mm or more), or it will not fit.

    The Seimitsu PS-14-G is a solid color 30mm pushbutton designed to snap into a thin (1.3mm or .051") metal panel.  It has a noticeably flat plunger top, preferable to some who don't like the convex shape of other Japanese pushbuttons.  The PS-14 G uses the Seimitsu PS-14-G Button Micro Switch. Please see our product photo gallery for full specs.  

    Bundle with MM9-4 High Tension Button Spring and Save

    By default, Seimitsu PS-14-G microswitch requires 1.0N or 0.2 LBF (pounds force) to each button. 

    The MM9-4-25N adds an extra .08 LBF (pounds force), for a total of 0.28 LBF.  The result is a light, but firm button input requirement that accelerates its the button cap's return to neutral. 

    The MM9-4-50N adds an extra .16 LBF (pounds force), for a total of 0.34 LBF, resulting in a much firmer button input requirement that quickly pushes the button cap's to neutral position, ready for the next press.

    This is desirable to some who appreciate using more deliberate input force and a bit less sensitivity than Sanwa's SW-68 offers. Now, you can save 25 cents off the regular price of the MM9-4 series spring when you choose one of the high tension springs from the options list.

    Silencer is our 1mm-thick foam washer that helps to dampen the loud sounds common with tapping on the button plunger.  It conforms to the internal housing of many Sanwa or Seimitsu-style 30mm pushbuttons.

    Silencer Installation

    installing the Silencer foam pads into a Sanwa or Seimitsu pushbutton is straightforward.  Place the washer - plastic film side down - into the button housing.  Align the small tabs so that they stick out of the holes on each side of the housing.  For Seimitsu PS-15, and Hori Hayabusa low profile pushbuttons, snip the tabs off with scissors and place into the housing.

    24 vs 30mm

    When processing orders, a frequent mistake we found among new players is choosing the wrong size for action buttons, such as punch and kick.

    Within the fighting game genre, Japanese arcade buttons commonly consist of two diameter sizes: 24 millimeter and 30 milllimeter (mm). In most configurations, 30mm represents your action button.  These are front facing, appearing most prominent on your Fightstick control panel.  Option button, such as "Start", "Select", or more recently "Option", "Touch", or "Share" are usually 24mm.

    UPDATE: Owners of Neo Geo AES Joysticks will need 24mm pushbuttons instead of 30mm (Thanks SRK's DEZALB)

    Below is a visual representation of a common Fightstick control panel.  Throughout this article, we will mark 24mm in green, and 30mm in Orange.

    Checking the Proper Size

    button-30mm.pngAnother way that players can misinterpret the pushbutton size is by measuring the pushbutton plunger.  Have a look at the diagram at right.

    The plunger - the part that you press down to represent an input - is 25mm or a bit smaller in most 30mm pushbuttons.  Often this leads to the conclusion that one needs a 24mm button and not 30mm.

    Similarly measuring the button rim can lead to confusion, as it is intentionally larger than the button hole it is placed in.  You don't want to use these measurements.  Instead, review the button housing diameter, or the hole the button will be placed in.  You can do this with a caliper - a digital caliper is often quite helpful for this and other arcade-related projects.

    Control Panel Configuration

    Most Fightsticks from MadCatz, Hori, Qanba, and similar will use these two sizes.  How the buttons are used will depend on the model joystick that you own. Over time, we'll provide example configurations for specific popular Fightstick models and arcade cabinets using the color key for 24mm (green) and 30mm (orange).  We'll also expand the key for future models if another size is introduced, and we offer for sale.

    1. Nice Buttons But...

      Pros: These are solid buttons if you like a longer travel distance to the switch.
      It has a flat top compared to Sanwa's convex rounded top which feels really nice.

      Cons: The plastic casing around the button is cheaper than Sanwa so you have to be careful swapping it in and out of your stick.
      I wouldn't recommend these buttons for games where you have to press multiple buttons simultaneously. Unless you mod cherry mx switches, you lose accuracy with the travel distance.

    2. My new favorite buttons

      Bought these to replace my sanwa denshi buttons as I heard they were less sensitive. These seimitsu buttons feel and sound just as satisfying to press while being more resistant which helps in Tekken for pressing multiple buttons at once. Overall very pleased with them and will likely use them over sanwa in the future.

      Just be warned the optional spring option is pretty bad. The idea of adding even more resistance is good but it makes the buttons have a very mushy unsatisfying feeling when you press them and removes the tactile clicking sound. This is preference obviously but half the fun of using these buttons is the satisfying tactile feeling they have

    3. for button hipsters

      familiar with crown and sanwa buttons, these feel great. Have solid resistance but still very responsive, and the throw isn't too crazy for switch activation (something I found in the crowns). very solid and made with quality, got a different sound to them like most say, which I thought I wouldn't like based on watching youtube videos. ... needless to say once in my panel, ..these things CLACK!!!, and I mean that in the best of ways <3 on Feb 28th 2018

    4. Sweet buttons

      I got these to replace the Hori buttons that came on my RAP4. I love the flat top and more distinct button press. The buttons fit perfectly and were easy to install. Zero complaints. on Sep 6th 2017

    5. Solid butons

      They're not as flashy-looking as I'd hoped, but they definitely don't look bad (I just prefer super glossy, curved buttons). If you're upgrading from some generic parts (like the ones my Qanba Carbon,) these will be noticeably tougher to press. They have a distinct resistance after pressing slightly, and make a sort of dull clacking noise.

      Installation into my Qanba Carbon was a breeze. I was a little worried because the buttons fit into the case with no problem, but would come out when I pressed the wires into them. This hasn't proved to be a problem though, and the buttons stay put just fine otherwise.

    6. Great Buttons

      While I've yet to try Sanwa buttons these Seimitsu ones get the job done. They fit in any standard sized arcade stick with minimal modding (Had to grind out the buttons holes on my Qanba Q1 75/1000ths of an inch or so to get them to fit) and have more of a microswitch feel similar to Happ buttons which more of us are more accustomed to in the arcades. These buttons are a good bit lighter than Happs(IL Lorenzo) and don't have the same tactility and click, but they have the same two stage binary push rather than Sanwa's linear spring-like feedback. If you're a mechanical keyboard guru these buttons would be most similar to Cherry Clears/ Ergo Clears so if you're into that kinda thing pick them up! Otherwise if you're more into the smooth linear press of Cherry Reds or don't like the idea of tactile feedback I'd try the Sanwas (Haven't tried them myself but that's what I've heard they're like) Hope that this review was helpful! on Feb 4th 2016
