The new SW3800 series of high-capacity rocker switches from NKK Switches feature an exceptionally high 30A rating in a relatively small package size of approximately 1.-by-1-inch. Most comparably rated rocker switches are about two to three times larger in size, said the company. These devices may be used in industrial, commercial and transportation applications.

The SW3800 series rocker switches are available in double-pole and three-pole models with maintained circuits in single- or double-throw configurations. They feature resistive ratings of 30A at 125Vac, 30A at 250Vac and 30Vdc, and inductive load ratings of up to 30A at 125Vac and 30A at 250Vac.

The actuators are constructed of urea resin in white and the mounting frame is steel with chrome plating over nickel plating. The switches feature screw terminals made of brass with nickel plating. Mechanical life is rated at 50,000 operations minimum and electrical life rating is 25,000 operations minimum.

Nominal operating force varies from 800g to 2,200g depending on the model specified. These switches are UL recognized and CSA certified.

The SW3800 series rocker switches are priced at $13.30 each in quantities of 500. Delivery is from stock to seven weeks.
