Würth Elektronik introduces its toggle switch family

Waldenburg (Germany), March 23, 2023 – Würth Elektronik now also produces high-quality toggle switches. Different versions of the user-friendly fast switches are now available under the name WS-TOTV. The switches are ESD compliant to IEC 61000-4-2 and have undergone operating endurance testing under full load to prove their durability (electrical life: 50,000 steps).

Toggle switches are commonly used to switch between functions on devices, which is why Würth Elektronik offers them with both ON/OFF/ON and ON/ON switching functions. They are available for SPDT (Single Pole Double Throw) and DPDT (Double Pole Double Throw) schematics as well as in horizontal and vertical versions. Their current carrying capacity is 1 A at a rated voltage of 30 V. The withstanding voltage extends to 500 V and the operating temperature from -40 up to +85°C. The frame complies with flammability class UL94 V-0.

Options include a locking ring as mechanical anti-twist protection for assembly in the 6.35 mm panel cutout, and caps in red or black. Würth Elektronik also supplies caps in any color for larger orders. Free samples for developers can now be ordered.
