Precautions for selection of rocker switch

Share This Post

Waterproof rocker switch, as the name suggests, is a rocker switch that can be used in wet environments or can be operated with wet hands. Waterproof rocker switch, there are other names, such as: wave switch, rocker switch, rocker switch, rocker switch, IO switch, power switch, because the rocker switch looks like a boat, so it is so called.

The rocker switch is also called rocker switch. Its structure is the same as that of the toggle switch. The difference is that the knob handle is replaced with a rocker switch. The rocker switch is usually used as a power switch for electronic equipment. The contacts are divided into single pole single throw and double Double throw, some switches also have indicator lights.

How to choose a boat switch:

1. Is the certification complete?

Whether the waterproof boat switch is fully certified, whether it uses environmentally friendly materials, whether it has passed the relevant regulations and obtained SGS certification; has VDE/DEMKO/KEMA (now using European

Union ENEC), UL/CSA and other certifications.

2. IP waterproof standard

The sealing performance of the waterproof rocker switch exceeds the standard, and can reach IP65, IP66, IP67 and even IP68 waterproof grades when paired with related accessories.

3. Design Issues

Whether the design of the waterproof rocker switch is reasonable, service life, high temperature resistance and current impact resistance are all to be considered.

Precautions for the use of the rocker switch:

The specific application of the rocker switch is limited by many factors, such as: installation method and product installation direction, air flow, pressure acting on the product

The waterproof rocker switch should have excellent sealing performance, the switch is completely sealed, and the intrusion of corrosive gases or substances needs to be prevented.

Troubleshooting of the rocker switch:

The rocker switch sometimes cannot be turned off after it is turned on, and the air switch is often jumped. The method to solve the fault: there is a piece of metal in the rocker switch, and there is a spring fulcrum in the middle. The displacement of the spring and the aging and deformation of the plastic bracket will cause the switch to fail. Flexible, you can take it apart to see after the power is turned off. Maybe it can be restored if the plastic parts are not damaged. The neutral wire inside the switch is straight through and has nothing to do with the switch components. Therefore, if the switch trips the air switch, the insulation layer of the neutral wire passing through the switch is damaged. The damaged part can be cut off and reconnected. Pay attention to ensure the insulation. It could also be that the indicator pin is shorted, just rewire it.
