Rocker switch is also called rocker switch. Its structure is the same as that of a toggle switch, except that the handle of the button is replaced with a boat shape. Rocker switches are often used as power switches for electronic equipment. Their contacts are divided into single-pole single-throw and double-pole double-throw. Some switches also have indicator lights.
Rocker switch is a small high-capacity power switch suitable for home appliances and office equipment. Compared with other switches, it is more powerful. But there are also different types of rocker switches
The small-capacity non-sealed type of ship type switch has a small rated voltage and rated current, 5A @ 120VAC, 28VDC; 2A @ 250VAC. This type of product has three positions. In terms of material, the terminal is usually brass-coated with gold or silver. Long life span, up to 50,000 times.
Large-capacity sealed type For large-capacity ship-type switches, it is more suitable for use in power supplies, and the safety of airtightness is more guaranteed. 15A，125VAC; 8A, 250VAC, there are two positions, ON or OFF, and the terminal material is brass Baoxi.
The rocker switch, the red light is very common when it is switched on. Sometimes it can’t be turned off, it just can’t bounce back, and it often jumps to the failure of the air switch. The way to solve the problem: there is a metal piece inside the rocker switch with a spring fulcrum in the middle, spring displacement and aging and deformation of the plastic bracket, the switch is not flexible , You can take a look after the power is off, if the plastic parts are not damaged, maybe it can be restored. The neutral wire inside the switch is straight through and has nothing to do with the switch components. Therefore, if the switch jumps to the air switch, the insulation layer of the neutral wire of the switch is damaged. You can cut off the damaged section and reconnect it. Pay attention to the insulation to ensure . It is also possible that the indicator pin has a short circuit, just re-wiring.
Application range of rocker switch
Rocker switches are used in treadmills, water dispensers, computer speakers, battery cars, motorcycles, ion TVs, coffee pots, row plugs, massagers, etc. Rocker switches are widely used in household appliances, etc.
