Rocker switch is also called rocker switch. Its structure is the same as that of the toggle switch, except that the toggle handle is replaced by a boat shape. The rocker switch is often used as a power switch for electronic equipment. Its contacts are divided into SPDT and SPDT, and some switches also have indicator lights. The rocker switch is a small, high-capacity power switch suitable for home appliances and office equipment. Compared with other switches, it has a very wide range of applications. However, there are also different types of rocker switches.
The rocker switch is used in water dispensers, treadmills, computer speakers, battery cars, motorcycles, ion TVs, coffee pots, plug-ins, massage machines, etc. , mainly household appliances and the like.
The life test method of rocker switch
Mainly test the number of switches until it is damaged. If you do not need to manually drive the eccentric switch with a small motor, use a counter to record the number of times! If the product is sold in China, CQC is used, depending on the country where the product is sold abroad, such as UL in the United States and CUL in Canada. European countries have VDE, ENEC, TUV, etc. The boat-shaped switch, a very common one, turns red when it is turned on. Sometimes it can't be turned off and can't be bounced back, and the air switch is often broken.
There is a metal sheet inside the rocker switch with a spring fulcrum in the middle. The switch will not function due to spring displacement and aging deformation of the plastic bracket. You can take it apart after a power outage. If the plastic parts are not damaged, they may be repaired. The neutral line inside the switch is straight through and has nothing to do with the switching element. Therefore, if the switch trips the air switch and the insulation layer of the neutral wire of the switch is damaged, the damaged part can be cut off and reconnected. Take care to ensure insulation. It may also be that the indicator pin is short-circuited and can be reconnected.
The correct selection method of the rocker switch
1. Whether the certification is complete.
Whether the waterproof boat switch is fully certified, uses environmentally friendly materials, has passed ROHS related regulations, and has SGS certification; has VDE/DEMCO/KEMA (now using EU ENEC), UL/CSA and other certifications, only Arcolectric waterproof marine switch can be very good. Certification.
2.IP waterproof standard
The sealing performance of the waterproof marine switch exceeds the standard, and with related accessories, it can reach the waterproof level of IP65, IP66, IP67 and even IP68.
3. Design and other issues
Whether the waterproof marine switch has a reasonable design, long service life, high temperature resistance, and high current shock resistance should be considered.
The specific application of the waterproof marine switch is restricted by many factors, such as: installation method, installation direction of the product, air flow, pressure difference acting on the product, strength of fluid rebound, working voltage, etc.; but this also means that the switch It is completely sealed and also needs to prevent the intrusion of corrosive gases or substances.
