       In terms of the electronic product market, the small electronic component switch products are now also highly competitive in the market. The switch introduction of various brands also makes us confused and unable to choose. Sometimes when we look at the switch of the same specification, there may be different prices, but we cannot judge the quality by price only.Guangdong electronic switch manufacturer XKB technology company is willing to share with you a few electronic switch's choice strategy, below is the strategy of how to choose the waterproof micro switch. 

1.First of all, we need to know about the waterproof micro switch manufacturers, to confirm that the enterprise qualifications,how is the user's reviews, whether there is a strong technical support, and how long did the manufacturers switch operation.

2.Weshould know the parameters of the micro switch, switch size, including current range, travel and operating force, and know the rated current and voltage (AC or DC) required for specific application to select the appropriate switch. The micro switch is usually able to break the current from 5mA/5VDC to 25A/250VAC.     

              3.We should understand the operating environment of the switch. Environmental requirements have a significant impact on the selection of microswitches, especially in highly reliable and critical applications such as industrial controls and medical devices. Understanding the environmental conditions of the application including possible contaminants into the air, the liquid in which the switch is located, and the operating temperature.

4.Determine exactly how many times the switch needs to have electrical and mechanical operation life to ensure that the switch can operate safely without failure. Different switches have different materials, shells and terminals with different contacts, which can meet the electrical and mechanical life requirements in different applications. 

5.We'd better consider the cost performance of the switch, the same performance and the same material, and choose the brand with more cost performance. Then we should know the after-sales service situation and consult the manufacturer whether the problems can be solved in time, and whether the installation and other technical support can be provided. 

Of course when we actually make a purchase,we need to choose the corresponding waterproof micro switch according to our own requirements, this will be more practical and save more resources.
