Electrical Switches

Del City carries a wide variety of electrical switches to fit an array of electrical applications. Most of our electrical switch lines are 12V, making them suitable as marine, industrial, or automotive switches. All of the electric switches listed below are available in a variety of characteristics. These electrical switch characteristics include actuator type, handle shape, body construction and size, terminal type, voltage rating, sealing properties, and illumination. Actuator types include standard options like toggle, rocker, and push button. Along with the standard options, we also carry a variety of specialty electrical switch actuator types. These specialty options include solenoids, battery, ignition, push-pull, canopy, and rotary. Seven (7) different actuator options are available throughout our electrical switches including SPST, SPDT, DPST, and DPDT. Some electrical switch lines also have specialty actuations like 3PDT, 4PST, and 4PDT. The difference in handle shape is mostly seen in our toggle electric switch selection. Some have standard handles while others have bat handles, duckbill, paddle, or wedge handles. Body construction and body size of our automotive switches depend on the specific electrical switch line, but typically vary to accommodate the size of an application or the mounting hole shape. Some electrical switch styles require a round mounting hole, while others may require square or rectangular mounting holes. It is important to remember the shape of your mounting hole when selecting an electrical, switch, and knowing whether or not the mounting hole shape can be adjusted to accommodate the chosen switch. The offering of electrical switches below ranges from miniature to full-size switches with various mounting hole and illumination options. Terminal types also vary between some of the electrical switch choices from flat terminals to screw or solder terminals. When considering voltage, most electrical switches offered at Del City are 12V but some are rated higher, such as a selection of the solenoids.

If sealing the switch and circuit from the elements such as water or dust is a concern, selecting an electric switch with an O-ring or epoxy sealant is recommended. To add a professional look, consider choosing one of our illuminated electric or automotive switches. Illumination color options for our electrical switches include white, red, amber, blue, or green and can be either the entire actuator or just a small dot within, depending on what is desired. The extensive line of Del City electrical and automotive switches below will ensure that the demands of various electrical and vehicle application are met, whether it is a standard or custom install.
