A sliding switch is a switch in which the button handle is inserted, and the position of the sliding point is used to make the movablecontact piece contact with the aligned static contact piece to switch the circuit. Its static contact piece and moving contact piece arerespectively placed on the insulating seat and the button handle. Its application is affected by various factors such as airflow,pressure difference, voltage, fluid rebound, installation method, direction, etc. It is generally used in low-voltage circuits because ofits small size, high slider sensitivity, accurate switching point, stable and reliable , Is widely used in various instruments andelectronic products such as fax machines, multi-function telephones, radios, electric toys and so on.
Slide switch principle
There is a slider inside the sliding switch, which is driven in different ways during operation. The slider is driven to make the slidermove, and the switch contacts are turned on or off, thereby playing the role of a switch. It can also be said that by pushing the buttonhandle equipped with the moving contact to slide, the moving contact piece is connected from one set of static contact pieces to anotherset of static contact pieces to realize the switch of circuit switching.
Slide switch features
- The switch is light in weight, small in size, comfortable in hand, particularly flexible in touch, and even in force;
- After nickel plating anti-oxidation treatment, it has excellent conduction performance;
- durable use, the number of actions can reach at least 1 million times;
- The design of the contact area prevents the entry of small substances such as impurities and dust, and at the same time, it has good moisture and heat resistance as a circuit switch.
- There is no welding operation during the assembly process, and the assembly is simple.
Precautions for sliding switch installation
When installing the slide switch, pay attention to distinguish the wiring positions of the live wire and the neutral wire, and must not install the wrong position, so as not to affect the safe use of the circuit. The installation height is also worth noting. Usually this kind of switch is not installed individually. It is usually installed in a row. The height of the concealed switch from the ground is about 1.2m-1.4m, and the horizontal distance from the door frame is 150mm- 200mm, the switch that is mounted on the surface should pay attention to it is better to put an insulating protective shell outside.
