small toggle switch XT-11A
A toggle switch is a manually controlled switch that is mainly used for on-off control of AC and DC power circuits, but can generally also be used in circuits of several kilohertz or up to 1 MHz. It has the characteristics of small size and convenient operation, and is a commonly used switch in electronic equipment.
Type of toggle switch
There are two operating positions and two positions. The three-position switch can also have a position that is not positioned on one side. At the same time, there are many types of connection circuits. There are many types of toggle switch handles, such as metal conical handle, plastic conical handle, fluorescent handle, plastic sleeve handle, ball handle, flat stem handle, locking lever handle, wave handle, paddle button handle etc. Lock lever handle is suitable for hazardous operation. There is also a "lift-to-unlock" button handle with a spring on it and a milled groove at the end of the solenoid. The operator must first lift the button handle and then push it to another position to ensure safe work.
Toggle switch classification
A toggle switch is a manually controlled micro switch, similar to a DIP switch. Most toggle switches are widely used in the on-off control of AC and DC power circuits, and are rarely used in circuits of several kilohertz or up to 1 MHz.
Toggle switch working principle
In manual operation, the switch action can be divided into two stages. The first stage is to pull the trigger by hand towards the middle until the trigger is in the vertical position. At this time, the pointed top of the single-pole slider also gradually moves towards the middle until it reaches the middle position, which further compresses the compression spring. After the trigger passes the vertical position, the single-pole slider moves rapidly in the other direction under the pressure of the compression spring, and drives the trigger to turn rapidly. The contact pins are quickly turned on, which is the second stage. At this time, the separation speed of the contacts is related to factors such as the pressure of the compression spring and the friction between the moving parts, and the speed is very high. According to the test, the time from the disengagement of the contact to the reconnection is only about milliseconds, and the average speed is several millimeters. This speed is many times faster than manual pull speeds or motorized test pull speeds.
