How to Distinguish the Quality of the Rocker Switch?

Features and Performance of Rocker Switch


The rocker switch and the copper parts in the electronic rocker switch socket are the key components to ensure smooth current flow and reduce heat generation. High-quality electronic switching power supply sockets are made of excellent copper parts, which are strong.

Thick copper and less riveting are the four major indicators of the excellence of rocker switch copper sockets. Therefore, how to distinguish the quality of the rocker switch? The followings will teach you how to distinguish:

1. Thick copper sheet improves current flow ability and reduces the resistance of copper parts.

2. Strong resistance, especially for some sockets, not easy to deform. Even if the socket is used for a long time, it can maintain the appropriate clamping force. The Guancheng plum socket ensures that the socket and the plug are tightly connected to reduce the arc.

3. No rust, reduce the problem of increased resistance and heating caused by rust.

4. Less riveting, one piece of copper in the whole, further reducing the riveting and rivet heating.

Many years ago, the use of brass as current-carrying parts in sockets was the mainstream; nowadays, brass parts are still used as current-carrying parts, and the quality is definitely inferior. The appearance of brass is bright yellow, the texture is soft, abrasion resistance but not ambition in terms of durability (elasticity).

After the brass is used for a long time, the appearance of the copper parts will be oxidized and rusted, the color will become dark, and the touch resistance will be increased; after repeated plugging and unplugging, due to poor resistance and severe deformation of the brass sheet, it is often unable to pick up electricity or due to poor touch It forms an electric arc and cannot guarantee the safe use of electricity.

Now mainstream sockets use tin-phosphorus bronze as copper material. The tin-phosphorus bronze alloy has a purple-red appearance, and its features are its very high strength, strong elasticity and excellent corrosion resistance. Even after long-term use, its appearance will not be oxidized and corroded, the insert sleeve will not be deformed, and the appropriate clamping force will always be maintained.

Consider the thickness of the copper parts. If the product cannot be disassembled for visual inspection, a simple method of weighing the weight can be used. The more copper parts are used, the heavier the socket weight.
