Rocker Switch is Addressable
Offering the look and feel of a traditional Electro-mechanical control, the N-Series Addressable Switch from Carling Technologies provides an alternative to a CAN/LIN based switch with up to 144 individual switch IDs using a resistive ladder circuit. Different switch IDs are achieved by changing the resistor values tied to individual loads. Each switch is connected to an ECU and the application software is written to recognize the switch IDs to determine which load is being controlled as well as the selected actuator position. Features of the IP67-rated illuminated switches include a contact rating of 4 VA at 28 VDC, a dielectric strength of 1,250 Vrms pole to pole, and insulation resistance of 50 MOhm, and a contact bounce of 20 ms max.
