KEY FEATURES OF MINIATURE MICROSWITCH WITH LEVER SPDT 1A:
- Microswitch with lever
- Single Pole / Double Throw (SPDT) operation
- Rated for up to 125VAC @ 1A
These are 3-terminal SPDT type switches with a C (Common), NO (Normally Open) and NC (Normally Closed) connections.

Our Evaluation Results:
These work well for logic level switching or for light duty power switching. We have tested these switches at 1A @ 12VDC and they have a good snap-action operation. Switch operation occurs after about 2mm travel of the lever.
These are designed to be mounted on a PCB or the pins can be soldered to with smaller wire. The pins are not long enough to make good contact with a solderless breadboard unless they are extended.
