There are various types of rocker switches, including single-pole, double-pole, illuminated, non-illuminated, momentary, and maintained switches, each designed for specific applications.

How do I choose the right rocker switch for my application?

Consider the voltage and current requirements, the switch’s type (e.g., SPST, SPDT), and any additional features like illumination or momentary action based on your specific needs.

Are there rocker switches designed for specific environments, like outdoor or marine use?

Yes, there are rocker switches designed to be weatherproof or waterproof, making them suitable for outdoor and marine applications.

What are the key differences between illuminated and non-illuminated rocker switches?

Illuminated rocker switches have built-in indicators (usually LEDs) to show the switch’s status, while non-illuminated switches do not.

Can rocker switches be used in outdoor applications?

Some rocker switches are designed for outdoor use and are built to be weather-resistant or waterproof. Ensure you choose a switch suitable for your specific outdoor needs.

Can I use a rocker switch in a 12-volt automotive application?

Yes, rocker switches are commonly used in 12-volt automotive applications to control various functions, such as lights, fans, and auxiliary devices.

During Installation:

How do I wire a rocker switch?

Wiring a rocker switch involves connecting the power source and load to the switch terminals. Refer to the manufacturer’s instructions or a wiring diagram for your specific switch.
