Whats inrush current? Can your switch hold it?
2015/09/29 09:15:04
What is inrush current, here is a quote from Wekipedia:

Quoted from Wekipedia:
~Inrush current, input surge current or switch-on surge is the maximum, instantaneous input current drawn by an electrical device when first turned on. For example, incandescent light bulbs have high inrush currents until their filaments warm up and their resistance increases. Alternating current electric motors and transformers may draw several times...... ~

Choosing a switch that can have a good capacity for your device is thus very important for your device's safety. Many of our switches can be chosen with an option to offer inrush current rating as high as 128A.

Here are a few models for your reference:

MR6-series can offer TV10, or 141A inrush.

PS5-series can offer 8A'L', or 128A inrush.

MR2-series, TV6, or 96A

HB-series, 6A'L' rating, or 92A

There are others more, please consult our sales to find out.

So, you may wish to contact us to enquire for a suitable switch that can best fit to ensure your device's life and stability.
