Questions & Answers

Why are there no DC voltage and current ratings listed for this switch?

Asked by TG September 21, 2020
1
Answer

AC rated switches can be used in applications where less than 30V DC is required, provided the current (amps) does not exceed the full current rating of the switch. Since this switch is rated 10A 125VAC it is ok for 10A 30V DC applications as well.

Is this compatible with DC voltage ? And what are the specs/current rating for DC voltage ?

Yes it will

Is there enough treads to mount this though a 1/4 inch piece of plastic.

Asked by yulp58 April 19, 2016

Answer

You'll need a little less than 1/2" in order to mount it. The maximum space between the two mounting nuts is 0.41".

Is this switch normally open, or normally closed?

Will this switch turn a 60 watt light on and off.

Asked by zjm March 21, 2016

Answers

Watts divided by voltage will give you the amperage switch you need. As long as the rating on the switch is higher than you need you can use that switch. So 60 watts divided by 120 volts = .5 amps. This 10 amp rated switch is 20 times what you need for a 60 watt bulb so it will work fine with lots of margin. Good luck.

Depth of Hole

Asked by Zardiw January 16, 2016

Answer

With this switch you'll have 0.38" or 3/8" of space between the nut and the switch as the maximum width.

It mounts in a standard 1/2" hole.

It required a little more pressure and it issued a louder "click" than I expected. Overall, however, it does the job I wanted (replacing a "touch-lamp" switch that died).

bought this to repair my son's GE Stove, push button style for parts by GE no longer available, so i had to improvise with this for panel mounting to operate the oven light, sad to see so many electronics and switch companies not offer appliance repair parts, Radio Shack included. This item was available in store near by made of quality material, push mechanism works fine only time will tell, have the item only about a week now, it does not exactly meet the expectations as the original design by GE, but since i dont have alot of choices.
