With the help of a rocker switch, electrical connections can be made and broken repeatedly, or recurring switching pulses can be triggered. It is irrelevant whether the switch is designed for 230V or any other voltage. The spring force built into the switch keeps the rocker in a certain position and thus ensures that the circuit is permanently closed or disconnected until it is moved to a different position and thus fulfills a different function. Another way spring force works is to return the toggled switch to its original position so that the circuit closure or opening is only temporary.
Rocker switches can be installed individually and only operate an on/off function, or they can be installed in a two-way circuit in which at least two or more rocker switches are connected, for example with a voltage of 230V but also 12V, 250V or other voltages. There are also toggle switches whose rest position is a central position and the rocker can be tilted in both directions, such as with direction switches.
In the form of light switches, for example in stairwells in large buildings, 230V rocker switches or switches of any other higher or lower voltage are usually installed as rocker switches. After being pressed, the rocker switch jumps back to its original state and the light is switched off after a defined period of time – i.e. with a time delay. In general, so-called pushbutton switches can also be used as light switches - another form of toggle switch. With these switches, the rocker jumps back to its initial state as soon as it is actuated, thus ensuring a particularly uniform appearance if several switches are attached next to or one above the other. Unlike the rocker switch, the light is not switched off again after a certain period of time, but only after it is pressed again.
As a rule, toggle switches are mounted on printed circuit boards using solder connections, flat plugs, screw connections, snap-in mounts or solder pins. The dimensions and sizes in which rocker switches with 230V, 12V, 250V and all other voltages are available correspond to standardized sizes and comply with protection class IP67, provided they are purchased from a professional manufacturer. This marking indicates that the switches are protected against the effects of dust and water.
Toggle and rocker switches in our range
With MixMax-24 you get toggle and rocker switches in different designs and different electrical voltages. For example, our switches are designed for 12V, 230V, 250V and other voltages. You can also get our switches in classic black, red or even white, as well as in bright colors, so that you can make differentiations that are visible at first glance. Our switches are made of plastic to isolate and protect you and your devices.
Depending on personal preference or the required purpose, you can also buy round, oval and wide as well as narrow square switches from us. Even rocker switches with levers and a hinged protective cap for these levers are available from us in all voltages, including 230V.
Almost all of our switches are also available either as an on/off switch or as a switch with three possible positions, as well as in different diameters and with a different number of pins, so you can be sure that you will find the right switch for your needs with us.
