KISSLING Series DS Rotary Switches

Preprogrammed and Standard Rotary Switches

Rotary switches move in a circle and can stop in several positions. A rotary switch is used to control many electrical circuits with a single switch and can be designed to have many contacts happening at once on a single switch position. We offer 3 position rotary switches as well as 2 position rotary switches. These are often used when more than two positions are needed, such as in a three-speed fan or a CB radio that has multiple channels. Our rotary switches are engineered for use in harsh environment. These are used for control panels on industrial and plant equipment, radio frequency selection, voice and data communication, entertainment systems, automatic climate control, and in heavy-duty vehicles for commercial transportation, construction, and agriculture.

Our rotary switches are highly suitable for performance under demanding environmental conditions. A rotary switch has a rotating spindle, with the rotors located on a spindle and each rotor having an arm projected outward that can make contact with a terminal when the switch is in a particular position. A detent mechanism puts the rotary switch in the proper position, making it “click” into place and stay there until enough force is used to move it, preventing the switch from moving freely and setting in the wrong position. We offer a wide range of rotary switches with multiple actuator styles and shapes. We offer a rotary switch portfolio with various colors, sealed or unsealed configurations, and we can preprogram your switches or deliver them standard, based on your individual requirements. We offer sealed or unsealed switches as well as 1-pole and 2-pole configurations with change-over function to address the customer’s application needs. Our portfolio also includes surface mount or through-hole mounted rotary switches. Rotary switches have become less popular with the advent of digital equipment like touchscreens that control complex switching operations, but mechanical rotary switches are still used, especially in equipment where a computer fail could cause a safety issue.
