What are slide switches? Essentially, Slide switches are used to manage a level of current by sliding one way or the opposite direction to either turn ‘on’ or ‘off’ or a function. Commonly the slider switch is used to turn an electrical device ‘on’ or ‘off’, by making or breaking the circuit, the circuit can be interrupted by moving the switch.
- Vertical and right-angle slide switches
- Single pole and double pole options
- Sealed IP rated slide switches available

PCB slide switches?
Our slide switches are PCB mounted. A PCB switch is a switch that is directly mounted onto a PCB (Printed Circuit Board). Surface mount PCB switches (SMD/SMT) are designed to sit flat, directly on top of a PCB. Through-hole or ‘thru-hole’ PCB switches are inserted into a drilled hole on the printed circuit boards and soldered to pads on the opposite side.
