Introduction to Slide Switch

Author : Site EditorPublish Time :

A sliding switch is a switch in which the button handle has a contact, and the position of the sliding point is used to make the movable contact piece contact with two sets of static contact pieces to switch the circuit. Its static contact piece and moving contact piece are respectively located 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 of its small size, high slider sensitivity, accurate conversion point, stable and reliable , Is widely used in various instruments and electronic products such as fax machines, multi-function telephones, radios, and electric toys.

The sliding switch has two, three, four, and six positions. The number of positions is usually two and three. Because of its small number of positions and few positions, it is more suitable for use in simple circuits. In addition, the contact form can generally be divided into sliding type, plunge type, butt type; jumping mechanism has double ball compression spring type, heart type, single ball compression spring type, of which the double ball compression spring switch is in the sliding button handle At this time, due to the force of the compression spring, the steel ball quickly enters other positioning grooves to realize the switch.

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 slider move, 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 button handle with the movable contact to slide, the movable contact piece is connected from one set of static contact pieces to another set of static contact pieces to realize the switch of circuit switching.

Slide switch features

   1. The switch is light in weight, small in size, comfortable in hand, particularly flexible in touch, and even in force;

  2, after nickel plating anti-oxidation treatment, it has excellent conduction performance;

  3, durable use, the number of actions can reach at least 1 million times;

  4. The design of the contact area prevents the entry of tiny substances such as impurities and dust. At the same time, it has good moisture and heat resistance as a circuit switch.

   5. 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 surface mounted switch should pay attention to the insulation protection shell.
