Toggle switch and microswitch are both switches. What's the difference between them? Let's give you a detailed introduction.
The toggle switch and the microswitch have the following points respectively:
1. Different range of use:
The toggle switch is widely used in various instruments, electric toys, fax machines, audio equipment, medical equipment, beauty equipment and other electronic products.
2. Different structure:
Compared with the toggle switch, the microswitch has the advantages of small closing contact distance, short action stroke, large torque, small use force and fast connection and disconnection.
3. Different performance characteristics:
The toggle switch is a new generation of photoelectric switch device manufactured by integrated circuit technology and external device technology. It has intelligent functions such as delay, broadening, external synchronization, strong anti-interference, high reliability, stable working area and self diagnosis. The microswitch has micro contact spacing and quick action mechanism. The contact mechanism which uses the specified stroke and force to make and break the switch is covered by the shell. There is a driver outside the microswitch, and the shape is small.
4. Different classification:
Toggle switch is usually divided into small current toggle switch and large current toggle switch. There are many kinds of microswitches. Generally, the basic type of microswitch is no auxiliary press accessory, and small line program and large line program are derived.
