Do you know what the slide switch is used for?

Our new slide switches have been used for level detection, liquid level control, product counting, width discrimination, speed detection, cut-to-length, hole recognition, signal delay, automatic door sensing, color mark detection, punch and shear Cutting machine and safety protection and many other fields. It can also be used as a burglar alarm in banks, warehouses, shops, offices and other occasions where it is required.

What should I pay attention to when designing a slide switch?

The degree of corrosion resistance of the contact metal should be considered in the design of the sliding switch, because most metals will form insulating oxides after oxidation, which will make the contact unable to work properly. The selection of contact metal also needs to consider factors such as its electrical conductivity, hardness, mechanical strength and whether it is toxic. Corrosion-resistant metals are sometimes plated on the contacts.

How to choose the right slide switch?

The size of the slide switch is important because it takes up valuable space on the device. Typically, however, the magnitude depends on the desired current rating parameter that needs to be switched. For example, power supply applications that require 3A to 15A current-carrying capacity are typically larger than small-signal switch slide switches. We need to choose according to the performance parameters, and also consider the space occupation.

What users say about FEETECH

Procured from the company for more than 5 years, from the initial one or two products to the current BOM procurement, the product quality is stable, the delivery is timely, especially the after-sales service is very professional, I hope there will be more projects for cooperation in the future.

HJ Kim

This is exactly what I was looking for. No, I mean EXACTLY. We are a company that designs lighting equipment,We have cooperated with FF tech for many years. Most of our electronic materials are purchased from here. We cooperate very well from proofing, trial production to mass production.

Steve Reischel

Our company has ordered ICs, connectors, switches and other electronic components from your company since 2017. After years of cooperation and consideration, the products you sell fully meet our requirements and our company's consideration of product quality.

Natalia Wolfson

We have long-term purchase of PCB boards from this company, perfect assortment for various projects, and a great value for the money. The soldered holes and pads are perfect, markings clear, and they’re all trimmed perfectly with no rough or uneven edges.

Frequently Asked Question

Do you have any question?

Slide switch are mechanical switches using a slider that moves (slides) from the open (off) position to the closed (on) position. They allow control over current flow in a circuit without having to manually cut or splice wire. This type of switch is best used for controlling current flow in small projects.

DPDT. “SPDT” stands for “single pole double throw,” while “DPDT” stands for “double pole double throw.” Both terms are varieties of switches. A switch, in a mechanical and electrical setting, is a control device that is used to establish or interrupt the flow of power or electricity into a circuit.

Types Of Slide Switches: Single Pole Single Throw Switch (SPST) Single Pole Double Throw Switch (SPDT) Double Pole Single Throw Switch (DPST) Double Pole Double Throw Switch (DPDT) Push Button Switch.
