Sliding switches can be used in many electrical appliances. What are the characteristics of the sliding switches? Here's a detailed introduction.
Sliding switch is also called toggle switch. It is mainly used for small electronic instruments and equipment with small duty and quick operation, and for switching circuit and band in radio.
Sliding switch has two, three, four and six knives and many other knives. The number of digits is usually two and three. Because of its small number of knives and digits, it is more suitable for use in simple circuits. In addition, its contact type can be generally divided into sliding, cut-in and docking types. The jumping mechanism can be divided into two types: double-balloon pressure spring type, core type and single-balloon pressure spring type. When sliding the knob handle, the double-balloon pressure spring type switch, due to the force of the pressure spring, makes the steel balls quickly enter other positioning slots to realize the switch conversion.
Characteristics of Sliding Switch
1. The switch is light and small in size, comfortable in hand, especially flexible in touch and even in strength.
2. After nickel plating and anti-oxidation treatment, it has excellent conductivity.
3. Durable use, the number of movements can reach at least 1 million times;
4. The design of contact parts can prevent the entry of impurities, dust and other micro-materials, and as a circuit switch, it has good moisture and heat resistance.
5. There is no welding operation in the assembly process and the assembly is simple.
Notes for Installation of Sliding Switch
When installing sliding switch, attention should be paid to distinguishing the wiring parts between the fire line and the zero line, and the wrong position should not be installed, so as to avoid affecting the safe use of the circuit. The installation height is also noteworthy. Usually, this kind of switch is not installed alone. It is common in a row of installations. The hidden switch is about 1.2 m-1.4 m from the ground and 150 MM-200 mm from the door frame horizontally.
The sliding switch has slider inside, which is driven in different ways during operation, and drives the slider to make the slider move. The contact of the switch is connected or disconnected, thus playing the role of switch. It can also be said that by sliding the knob with the movable contacts, the movable contacts can be connected from one group of static contacts to another group of static contacts to realize the switch of circuit switching.
