What are the types of rocker switches?


  Rocker switches, also known as toggle switches, are a common type of switch in daily life with various types and characteristics.

  Firstly, rocker switches can be classified based on their contact types, mainly including the following:

1. Single Pole Single Throw (SPST): It has only one moving contact and one stationary contact, enabling control of a single channel.

2. Single Pole Double Throw (SPDT): It has one moving contact and two stationary contacts, allowing for connection to either of the two stationary contacts.

3. Double Pole Single Throw (DPST): It has two moving contacts and two stationary contacts, providing two channels of control.

4. Double Pole Double Throw (DPDT): It has two moving contacts and four stationary contacts, enabling connection to either pair of the two stationary contacts.

  Additionally, rocker switches can be further classified in the following ways:

By Shape: They include rectangular, elliptical, circular, and other shapes.

By Function: They include single-control rocker switches, dual-control rocker switches, triple-control rocker switches, and so on. Among them, single-control rocker switches can achieve single-circuit control, while dual-control and triple-control rocker switches can achieve multi-circuit control.

  In conclusion, rocker switches come in a wide variety, and one can choose the appropriate type based on specific application scenarios and requirements.
