Rocker Switches For Consumer Applications And More

CandK Components has developed two series of rocker switches for household appliances, instrument panels, industrial controls and computers/peripherals. Designated the CG and CL series, the UL- and CSA-approved single-pole power rocker switches feature two-tone and multi-coloured illuminated actuators. The durable rockers are said to be easy to install and offer a casing that can retain markings. The CG series single-pole power rocker switches are available with a two-tone actuator (offered in five colour combinations) or with red, amber or green illuminated actuators.

Additionally, the actuators can be marked. VDE-approved, the bevelled, framed CG series rockers offer easy panel-mount installation. The switch has contact ratings of 16A at 125VAC or 10A at 250VAC and an electrical life of 10,000 make-and-break cycles at full load. The operating temperature for the CG series is -20C to +85C. The CL series single-pole power rocker switch features a positive detent with several models available with illuminated actuators in red, amber and green colour options. The contact ratings for the rocker switches are 16A at 125V, 1/3HP or 10A at 250VAC, 1/2HP. Operating temperature is -20C to +80C. Both series are designed for easy snap-in installation and both have quick-connect terminations.
