What is a Rocker Switch?A switch is an electromechanical device which opens and closes contacts to control the flow of electrical current. A rocker switch is a subset of manually actuated switches, where the interface is an actuator (or rocker) which rocks or pivots about a center point, typically providing either two or three positions. Rocker switches can be momentary or maintained (spring return or stay on, stay off) and can be mounted into a panel or pendant assembly. Applications for rocker switches range from household items, such as the power switch on the back of a computer to heavy equipment controls, military field equipment and a wide variety of harsh duty applications.
Waterproof Rocker Switches by CPICPI’s K1 Series rocker switch is a unique problem solver for the most demanding harsh environment applications. It is a part of our waterproof product offering, and is therefore truly submersible – not just splashproof or water resistant. The compact form factor of the K1 Series rocker switches makes this product ideal for tactical military applications such as gun sighting and night vision systems
