Understanding Toggle and Rocker Switches
What is a Toggle Switch?
A toggle switch is a type of switch that features a lever for turning a circuit on or off. These switches come in different orientations, including horizontal, vertical, and right-angle positions, catering to various electronic devices. Toggle switches are also available in different sizes to accommodate specific requirements.
What is a Rocker Switch?
Rocker switches are one of the most commonly encountered switch types. These switches have a mechanism that rocks between two or more positions when pressed. As one end of the switch is raised, the other end lowers. Rocker switches are sometimes referred to as see-saw switches.
Differences between Rocker and Toggle Switches:
Appearance: The primary distinction between rocker switches and toggle switches lies in their appearance. Rocker switches have a more universal design, with a see-saw mechanism, whilst a toggle switch utilises a lever style actuator.
