DPDT Rocker Switches

DPDT rocker switches are available in a range of sizes and ratings to accommodate different applications.


DPDT rocker switches are a type of switch that can control two separate circuits at the same time. DPDT stands for double-pole, double-throw, meaning that the switch has two sets of contacts (or poles) and each set can be thrown (activated) in two different positions.

Rocker switches are so named because they resemble a rocker or seesaw when flipped back and forth. The switch is mounted to a panel or enclosure and has a rockable actuator that moves from side to side. The DPDT rocker switch offers a larger actuator surface area than other types of switches, making it easy to operate with a finger or thumb.

DPDT rocker switches are commonly used in electronics, automotive and industrial applications where multiple circuits need to be controlled with a single switch. For example, they can be used in a vehicle to control the headlights and tail lights, or in an industrial control panel to activate two different machines.

One of the key advantages of DPDT rocker switches is their versatility. They can be wired in a variety of configurations to allow for different types of switching. For example, they can be wired as an on-off-on switch, where each throw position connects two different circuits. Or they can be wired as a momentary switch, where the switch only stays engaged as long as the actuator is held.

DPDT rocker switches are available in a range of sizes and ratings to accommodate different applications. They can be panel-mounted or PCB-mounted, and can be rated for different voltages and currents. They can also be illuminated with LED or neon indicators to show when the switch is activated.

Overall, DPDT rocker switches are a reliable and versatile choice for controlling multiple circuits with a single switch. Their rockable actuator and large surface area make them easy to operate, and their ability to be wired in different configurations makes them a popular choice in a variety of industries.
