The Sparkfun Rotary Switch - 10 Position is a robust, single-pole device capable of selecting up to 10 different states. This model is designed to handle larger currents and voltages, making it ideal for more demanding projects. It has a maximum voltage rating of 125VAC at 0.3A and a dielectric strength of 250VAC for 1 minute. The switch is not breadboard-friendly and requires the use of 11 pins, but a breakout board is available to facilitate its use.
This rotary switch is more than just durable; it's also versatile. It's the same model that was trusted in Sparkfun's Decade Resistance Box. Whether you're working on an electronics project that requires precise state selection or need a reliable switch for a high-voltage application, this rotary switch is up to the task.
The package includes the 10 Position Rotary Switch, a hex nut, and two washers. The switch features a contact resistance of 50mΩ max, insulation resistance of 100MΩ at 500VDC min, and rotation torque of 1.0+0.5KG/cm. The shaft measures 6.35mm.
The Sparkfun Rotary Switch - 10 Position offers a unique blend of durability, versatility, and power handling capabilities. It's the perfect choice for projects that require a robust and reliable switch solution.
