How To Select Proper Micro Switch
Nowadays, micro switch or snap action switch is widely applied in the high-tech industry for its particular application. The aviation industry, army weapons corporations, and other highly-precise instruments will have to consider micro switches as necessary electronic components for their subminiature compact size. A micro switch or snap action switch has its advantages, whether its weight, volume, or structure, all show its specialty that other switches do not have.
With technology further developed, people’s requirements for new technology products are rising, and a high-quality micro switch must be needed. However, how to select an excellent micro switch? Before choosing a proper micro switch, we must have a general understanding of the micro switch, its design, dimension, and size. The size difference of the microswitch will cause electrical rating or voltage endurance to differ from each other. If the microswitch can not bear a large current, it will short out easily. If the microswitch size is more significant, the capability to endure current is better, and vice versa. So it is understood to select an excellent micro switch is of great importance to electronic products or equipment.
Besides, we have to select micro switch proper parameters, especially the electrical rating. It is easy to be injured or wounded if the electrical rating of the microswitch is not selected right. What’s more, we need to consider the microswitch working environment seriously. For instance, if the microswitch should be applied at low temperature but high voltage, the microswitch must be high quality with reliable electrical characteristics. Usually, there will be an instruction book to show the detailed parameters of a micro switch for your reference.
Those parameters are based on experiments and tests, and it is better to check them to ensure we can buy a proper microswitch. The life of the microswitch will affect electronic products working life, so selecting a reliable snap action switch is significant.
