Toggle switch alternation porcelain


The toggle switch is one of the oldest switch types. It is particularly easy to operate - even with your elbow if necessary when your hands are full. The central insert is made of porcelain - as was the case with the first of its kind - and the toggle lever is made of thermoset (Duroplast). The base body is made of steatite, a technical porcelain, and has solid screw contacts. The switching process is also confirmed acoustically by a durable brass switching mechanism.

An alternation switch can either be used individually as an on/off switch or in conjunction with a second alternation switch.

More details

Today, rocker switches are almost only found with an oversized rocker. These monstrosities - aptly called "surface switches" - attract too much attention for our taste. We prefer the smaller, well-proportioned rockers of earlier models, which can be operated comfortably with a single finger. 

The central insert of our rocker switch is made of porcelain, the round rocker is made of thermoset (Duroplast). The base body is made of steatite, a technical porcelain, and has tried-and-tested screw contacts. The durable brass switching mechanism also confirms the switching process acoustically. You can influence the volume by guiding the rocker more or less strongly into its target position.

Covers & Combinations

Covers and combination options.
All switches and sockets are supplied without external cover!

The inserts can be combined with the various covers of the series and thus used in a wide variety of configurations. Round single covers, double covers and round system covers are available. You can combine all switches and sockets of the porcelain switch series with these covers. For the antenna and telephone inserts and their offshoots, there are special single and system covers that have a larger inner diameter. The system and double covers can be used in existing installations without any problems, as they have been developed according to the standard distances. The porcelain switch range fits in all standard flush-mounted boxes.

The individual parts of the porcelain switch range are not compatible with our other switch ranges.
