Switches • Rocker Switches

Rocker switches have a wide range of uses and when pressed, one side of the electromechanical switch is raised while the other side is depressed called rocking.

Unlike trip-type electrical switches, when a rocker switch is pressed one side of the switch is raised while the other side is depressed, which is known as “rocking.” A rocker switch commonly features a circle for "on" and a horizontal dash or line for "off" on each half of the switch.Often used in manufacturing applications, industrial rocker switches are designed to handle higher amp and voltage ratings. Rocker switches are also used in surge protectors, display monitors, and computer power supplies.Two widely used types of rocker switches include: cherry rocker switches with current ratings up to 20 amps; and round rocker switches for high current switching. These switches are miniature or full-sized in design, feature single- and double-pole configurations, and can be illuminated or non-illuminated.
