Non-Illuminated Switches

We offer a wide range of non-illuminated push button switches and electromechanical components such as Relays, Pots-Knobs-Encoders, Rockers & Toggles, Navigation modules, Key Lock Switches and even a host of non-illuminated Emergency Switches. Although they may not be illuminated, these durable switches and electromechanical components can still be customised through etching, stamping, support coloured caps or metal finishing and wiring.

Let us share the range of non-illuminated Push Button switches and electromechanical components.

Configuration: 

Pole and Throw Configurations

RJS Electronics - SPDT explained

We have a range of non-illuminated electromechanical and Push Button switches that support a range of poles and throws. Our switches are commonly referred to as single pole and double pole which relates to the number of circuits that are controlled by the switch. The throw defines how many positions the switches poles can be connected to.

  • SPSP – single pole single throw
  • SPDT – single pole double throw
  • DPST – double pole single throw
  • DPDT – double pole double throw
  • 3PDT – Three poles double throw
  • 4DPDT – Four poles double throw

SPST switches make or break the connection of a single conductor in a single branch circuit. This switch type typically has two terminals and is referred to as a single-pole switch.

SPDT  switches make or break the connection of a single conductor with either of two other single conductors. These switches usually have three terminals and are commonly used in pairs. SPDT switches are sometimes called three-way switches.

DPST  switches make or break the connection of two circuit conductors in a single branch circuit. They usually have four terminals.

DPDT  switches make or break the connection of two conductors to two separate circuits. They usually have six terminals are available in both momentary and maintained contact versions.

Switch Configurations:

normally open (NO)  switch has contacts that are open or disconnected in their unactuated (normal) position. A normally closed (NC) switch has contacts that are closed or connected in their unactuated (normal) position.

Switch Configurations

The switches are electrical switches available in different configurations including two-position On/Off, three-position, momentary, maintained and more.

Momentary ON – describes contacts that interrupt the circuit when the switch is in the normal, open (NO) position.

Momentary OFF – describes contacts that establish a circuit when the switch is in the normal, closed (NC) position.

Alternate ON/OFF – describes a switch where the first actuation turns the switch ON and the second actuation turns the switch OFF.


IP Rating:

Many of our push button switches and electromechanical components are IP rated.

For more information on IP Rating, see our blog post.

IP Rating: Our non-illuminated electromechanical and Push Button switches are IP rated (from the front) which means that our switches are sealed and/or waterproof, making them hardwearing and durable in a range of conditions.

IP Ratings explained by rjs electronics Lt. IP 67, IP68.

Let us give you a break down of the IP ratings. Click to save or screenshot the table, for future reference. Many of our PCB and panel mount switches are IP rated. For more information about IP ratings, click to read our blog about IP rating.

IP65 Rated
Dust-tight, protected against water projected from a nozzle.

IP66 Rated
Dust-tight and protected against powerful water jets.

IP67 Rated
Dust-tight, protected against water immersion for 30 minutes between depths of 150mm to 1000mm

IP68 Rated
Dust-tight and protected against continuous water immersion.


Applications:

Our non-illuminated electromechanical and Push Button switches are commonly used for a range of applications for commercial and domestic purposes. Our switches can be used for any electronic device that requires to be turned on or off or function requires to be switched on or off. For example, our PCB and Panel Mount switches can be used for industries such as boat building and marine, Door entry and Security but not limited to.
